I am able to do that on Masseys.

My nephew manages a company that services/installs lift booms on trucks. He has one of those seperators and I'm going to try it on my "good" steering wheel this weekend. If it works like I hope, I too will probably invest in one of the HF versions.

You know what I mean.... I should have quoted it. (Of course, as an admin I'm sure you could have corrected that as well; at least, that's what I do on sites I moderate! )
All in good fun
I have missed quoting several posts before they were fixed and couldn't be proven LOL
