I lost the knob on the radio like that. It reappeared two years later. It had been hiding in the folds of the handbrake gaiter...

It is sooo frustrating when you spend longer looking for something (tools is my personal forte) than you do completing the job...

I once spent an hour looking for a 10mm socket that I had just been using before I found it in my pocket...……………………...

In your pocket! No wonder it took so long, the other say I spent ages looking through my tools for my countersink bit and it was in my left hand! :loco:

Car Model: At least one of each classic.
Don't panic or rush around looking for it.

It has been borrowed by the Fairys.

Just ask them to return it when they're finished with it and it will eventually reappear exactly where you left it.

Always works for me!

Jim.
