Saturday was mainly replacing Mickh's tank guard. have to say the job was fairly easy, however I am so surprised that his tank didn't fall out the bottom. Even the straps had rotted through:

Comparison:

Tank ready to go in:

We are slowly restoring his truck I feel :D

Anyways .. after that I got myself some recovery shackles. Think they look rather nice:

Then on Sunday went for a bimble and took some photo's:

Oh and also Why did the Isuzu driver have to do all the speaking in the arena in front of everyone on behalf of the FRONTERA owners group. Mind the presenter didn't half look confused when she realised I drove an Isuzu :D
