That will help but still work to do mate :D
I'm still not 100% on it.
Springs revisited....ongoing over winter I guess but at least it's on the road.
They need to do some work with weight in it and P'boro will help with that.
Regards

The fruits of today's labour first saw the o/s wheel fitted after painting last week plus the rear light box splash plates and the lock half nuts to the tub hooks.

And to continue I finished up doing a bit of P'boro pre-loading and fitting the tarp....

After all that, I noticed the tyre was down on the wheel I'd just fitted - so bo**ocks, that will have to come off but luckily I've got plenty of spare tubes.
Just the inconvenience of it.

Hiya Bob! :D ,

It must be a nice feeling doing all the last little bits, knowing you're on the home run with the finish line in sight.

:lol: Your wrath on the flat tyre is palpable Bob - just don't do a Basil Fawlty and start hitting it with a branch. We've all had those moments - you have to laugh really. I'm looking forward to seeing your trailer on the show circuit some time soon :D
