Insulated (composite) metal would be an excellent choice. Available to order in any length/colour/thickness you want. 15-20deg pitch is no problem and will only need supporting at 2 points.

AH Code gearbox.

As per the title. AH Code box. Sold to me as being in good working order about 10 years ago. Changed plans meant I never used it so it’s been moved around with me to 3 different houses ever since and I’m still trying to sell it! Surely somebody wants it? Offers around £150.

Re: Double Cab drop gate changes

Does anyone know what happened to the 'photos' that were on the Dropgates site? There were some great pics of my 54SC when it was still in in NZ. I wish I'd printed them off when I first saw them about 5yrs ago.

Re: How do you Find an owner of an abandoned vehicle?

There's one in a shed near me. I've never bothered to find out who owns it as I don't think it's worth much-it's really old and has loads of Windows.

Re: Blasting recommendations

I can second the recommendation for Will at 'Blasting Die Past' he's done some really good work for me. (not sure how soon he could do it though- he's always stacked out!)
