Sad git that I am, I bought myself the t-shirt for my birthday, and I can report that it is very good quality and makes you look young and desireable when you wear it.
I recommend that Rambo buys two just to make sure.

He's clearly something else... Two or three years ago I sold him a set of Viton valve stem oil seals in a packet just like that. He claimed that they were not delivered and got ebay to refund the money, then he wouldn't give me a note to that effect to claim the money from Royal mail.

You don't see Viton stem seals, and if you had had to buy them you would know that they were nearer £3 each rather than for the packet of 16.

That's not good, I had the same with something I sold, the buyer said that it hadn't arrived, but it's value was about £300 - I can't remember why it wasn't signed for postage

Royal Mail sent him a request for confirmation that he hadn't received it, he didn't bother replying and RM denied my claim
My wife pushed it with RM, she got someone who (off the record) said that we always try to get out of this sort of claim, but if you push it, we are obliged to pay out. That's what happened, after complaining, we got our money
and guess what, that item appeared on ebay a few months later, from a different seller, but in a same locality

Have you thought about buying the seals and doing the same to him?

There are two plastic “fir-tree” prongs on the underside which fit into the holes in the black metal flange that protrudes from the bottom rear of the central console unit. The position of the prongs are not symmetrical and it will only fit one way. It’s a tricky fit because it goes under the map pocket.

I suspect that the reason yours is in the boot is that somebody has tried to fit it the wrong way round and broken the prongs.

It's a cover for all the cables that run under the central console but most of it is hidden under the map pocket on the rear bulkhead so it's not very conspicuous anyway.
