Fixed

I had to modify the block and make new ends to the pipes. Amazing how much comes out of these pipes when fed by that crazy steering :)

Oh dear what have I done !

Now I see the extra space I am thinking I can get another car in there |:)
20190110_151920.jpg
Damp proof membrane to go down, topped with type2 stone&dust (borrowing a "thumper" to compact that)....Cut telegraph pole for one end and the edges/another Damp membrane as a "ground sheet, ply over that, then the Temporary Garage tent (6m/Dancover-Pro) over the top.
My ramps are 5.2 meters long, so with luck I will be able to put a car undercover and on the ramps.

Still want an H-Van on a Land-Rover chassis :)


Almost as desirable as an H Van with an ES9 V6 engine and Activa suspension :wink: :-D

With four wheel drive as well!

So what actually happened - what’s the connection between a trucker and a block of wood?? - apart from being thick.

Looks like a piece of wood a trucker would use to put under the feet of the trailer when it's removed to help it stop sinking in.

That said, unless it was dark, there's no real excuse to hit something that size in the road!

Looks like it, nothing external. Will keep speed down until Sat when it will come off to fix the wheel.
