Thanks for your reply Andy, I really appreciate it…….I’ve found the colour code as you advised it’s colour G-156P……code G156G 🙏. I wonder how many times I have filled up with petrol and not noticed it 🤭🤭. Please advise on how / where to add a photo and I will……thanks again, Burkie33

When typing a post, below the text box there is an "Options" tab and an "Attachments" tab. You can click the "Add Files" button and browse your computer.

Alternatively, while typing in the text box, you can click on a .jpg file in your file index and drag that file over to the text box.
