Thanks Rod

And illegal on the public road with those wheels and tyres. Nice axles though those 404 Mog units, but apparently quite expensive to maintain. An aquaintance of mine, one of the Richardson twins sons (they built the Merry Hill centre), was moaning about the price of Mog parts. And if he moans that counts me out completely :lol:

:wave: Please ignore my practicing of posting photographs, just a chance photograph of Wil & Sam Webster's off-roader refuelling yesterday near Llanelli ready for a run back over the bridge to travel south around the Seven Estuary after a mud bashing weekend in Wales.

I like that, but other side of London and a right pain to get to. It would be £300 on top of asking price to get it here.

Rod, I have a mate who exports lorries to Africa out of Sheerness and one or two other ports on the east coast Tilbury and Felixstowe if I am remembering correctly :idea: , he runs a extendable low-loader up the M4 once or twice a month :think: do you want me to find out if a pick up could be arranged :?: I could ask as I gave him 300 ton of railway ballast the other day so I am in credit for a favour :?:

P.S. It might be doable Stonegate is not that far south of Tunbridge so a run back around the M25 clockwise might fit ?
Have fired off 2 emails anyway O/K

Thanks
Phil

No Phil, good of you but at the moment I have 4 quads, one motor and an Argo to shift first mate. Also have piles of quad parts which really should be sorted and sold.
Seriously thinking of down sizing the factory as I'm 65 in October, if I do I'll not have space. At the moment I'm thinking one quad, a Honda 500 registered plg and one motor. Either the RR or the Disco will go, not sure which yet. The RR is fast and comfortable, but bland. The D1 is noisier, slower, less refined but has character and is more interesting to drive. The RR also has leather seats, which I hate as cold in winter and hot in summer. They only made leather seats originally because the cloth was rubbish, now it's good.
I'm still in the thinking stage, which may take a while, so not adding to the fleet at the moment. Thanks for offering though, very good of you.

That would look good, series truck cab and doors with a 2A/2B Fc like front panel.



I'm trying to resist this Adam, and you're not making it easy :lol:
