    This may help if you win the jacket !.

    Steps to Remove the Ink Stain:
    1. Prepare the shirt by placing an old towel inside under the stained area. As you are working on the stain, some of the ink will be transferred to the towel. Use a thick enough towel so the stain is not transferred to the back of the shirt.
    2. Start by spraying the area with a good amount of hairspray. The chemicals in the hairspray are often enough to loosen and lift the stain.
    3. Allow the hairspray to set for a minute and then blot (don’t rub) the area with a clean cloth or cotton ball.
    4. If the stain remains, moisten a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and gently blot the stain.
    5. Repeat using a clean cotton ball each time until the stain is removed.
    6. If the stain still persists, mix together a small amount of baking soda and water to form a loose paste.
    7. Apply the paste to the stain with a cotton ball or soft towel.
    8. Blot to lift and remove the stain.
    9. If the above steps show no success, a last resort is to apply acetone nail polish remover. Cotton fabrics should be able to tolerate the acetone, but check by testing a small hidden area first to ensure there is no damage to the color or fibers of the shirt.
    10. Moisten a cotton ball with the nail polish remover and blot the stain.

    Thanks Tim! Yes the fit was spot on and I must have driven Paddy nuts. A lot of the credit goes to Bevan @bristolherc for the arm adjustment advice.

    Excuse me for the bump but just wanted to remind anyone interested she's finishing in an hour and at this current price you could say that I'm a little nervous (and surprised). Maybe there'll be a stampede which will be welcome but Im surprised the tiny bid increments make it look like newbies. I shouldn't speak too soon, I've seen plenty go wild in the end.

    I was fairly surprised it didn't go higher as well. Gave it a good shot, but got outbid by $1 with just a few seconds to go. Oh well, that's eBay for ya...

    Crikey that was far too cheap IMO, did you not have a reserve?

    Yes eBay's proxy bid system will do that. They could bid $100 more than your top bid but it will only ever bid $1 over. If you really want something you have to go with the maximum you are willing to pay, not just a couple of bucks above the last bid.

    No, I just wanted to sell it so I "put it on the market" so to speak. I've always found that reserves will only attract a small proportion of otherwise interested buyers or rather put a lot off. I suppose it's worth what it was sold for in this instance, bloody Chuck! Still it's interesting to see how the system is working, it used to be that if you had something good it would still get a fair price. Maybe it's not like that anymore.

    The brand new RMJ SAT 46 did not break US$1000 the other day? With the same exchange rates I could double my money on a BR flip. I could not break even these days. Have three Tankers, an M42, an M41, a B-10, a D-2 all waiting for better 'times'.

    Back in 2010 I sold a good wear same size less than 6 months old with 3 Ace signatures inside ,it went for $403 . I was very disappointed lost my ass on it ,so I know how you feel Andrew . The drumbeat of the media is telling us that things are booming is a bunch of crap ,there is no money out there in my opinion and it has been that way for close to 10 years .
