Bought a 'thing' today...I hope to turn the item in picture one into the item in picture two, or there abouts. I don tneed the cluster of lights on the roof thats for sure.

Gotta go and collect the 'thing' from Manchester:bang:

Looks like a serious bit of kit. Is this for moving the Donzi around? looks as thirsty :likeadrai

not sure yellow is your colour though think bright Red would be better. for towing may be you should keep the flashing lights on top :dance:

failed escapologist.
 
Left Horsham 11 A.M. arrived blokes place Manchester 8PM.

Left Manchester 9.30 arrived Horsham 2.30 AM. You COULD say I took it easy. I didnt want to well and truly knacker anything I hadnt yet seen.

Its Amazing that you can order new parts for a 1976 vehicle on the net but you have trouble getting one for a car built last year could be on back order.

I would like my options open about where I store the boat and to travel overland to other locations along the south coast :brainbulb

This thing would allow me to use hayling Isl. slipway in Northney marina and run up the road for petrol.

I should have gone to work yesterday but I had loads of fun ripping out 20 odd years of crap DIY, then getting it to run and things to work as they should. :bandit:

Except for the 4 batteries 2x 100Ah 2x 55Ah,I have taken out the 110's well and truly O.T.T. :great:

Heres the web page for one that has some good ideas..
If money were no object 101

So that'll be a tank full then just to launch the boat and get to the Texaco garage :bolt:

Plan A/ Obvioulsy MONEY NO OBJECT

Junk my trailer, get yank trailer, Keep the yank hitch and perhaps an air brake acutator and some master cyl replacing the guts in the hitch?
To comply, I think the brakes need to fail-on if the trailer is detached so security would be good.

Plan B
Get more money.

Its plan C that counts. Stopping the family spending it faster than plan B is getting it.

It is a well known fact that SOD'S law dictates that PLAN C is directly proportional to PLAN A, rendering adjustments to PLAN B vertually pointless.

I am doing my best here to alter the law by spending it myself before we even have it!

Last 24 hours:- hired a 7.5 ton truck, did 500 miles in juice andround trip. I bought the canopy poles, a roll bar and an english speedo.

Plus the three in the draw that had the zero percent balance transfer. :jail:
