Slushmatic?
I dont think Ive ever seen a baderbox on a transit van

i was looking at this as i walked out to it and there was a luton next to it which i was praying they didnt give me

luckily i looked in it and realised when they said you dont mind auto that it wouldnt be that :D

in certain places today its been good - have tried to change gear and stamp on the clutch tho (mainly at junctions :D )

and in 6 hours driving it its far comfier than the 21 big transit we have

why do they change the seats ffs

its also doing 42 mpg which is a surprise as its not been treated well :D

this happened :D

but offering it up to the van it was 3 inches too tall

ummed ahhed for 30 secs - ill take the top off it

so unscrewed it (thank fuck @Parky sent them square bits)

and still too high half inch - where the rubber seal sits the opening bows down slightly if that didnt do that - no problem

so so more umming and ahhing and was stood away from it and could see one of the other chaps with a tape measure and checking and farting about

'itll fit'

so he tries again and nope

0.05 secs after he puts it back down - i say to him have you got a saw?

i kill the mini saw i brought with me so i go into tahhhhnn and buy one from homebase and the second pic happened :D - top row with all the stickers GONE - INTO THE SEA WITH YOU :D

thank fuck for that

profuse thanks to them and then head towards kings lynn

so across thetford forest and thru the fens to boston (tea or more than a feeling)

zzzz

although got up with it starting 5 (MUTHAFUKA) tried to go back to sleep watched olympics for a bit then set off into the rain at 0630

seeing as i couldnt store the crate anywhere (cant get down the side of the house) i rang sis and said you have a woodburner dont you (yes)

would you like 75kgs of crate

ok

so get there and

many choppings and sawings later and its no more :D

bro in laws battery power circular saw couldnt go near it - id chopped 3 of the side planks with a hand saw before hed got thru one ffs

so some of it will be used for heat some of it will be used to make other stuff :D

Without wishing to be thick but why didnt you just get a hammer and twat open the case - remove bike and throw in back of van ( or car even).

i did wish to keep the crate but as time went on the more i realised it was far too impractical to keep it - also many leverings and beating to fucks with hammers happened and the crate just went FRO - def well built (omg the nails)

and after i chopped it to get it in the van i thought fuck it

was speaking to bro in laws neighbour (he came out to see what all the noise was :D )

and said im glad its like that as didnt need to pay for insurance cos there no way anything woulda broke it if itd fell on it :D

Appropriate new Zealand registration mark is appropriate :) (given where its been exported to!)

also bloody hell that was quick on the MOT! clean pass too :)
