Hi Adam, hope you & Mum are both well, Looking at the metal work ? do you use grinding wheels only, or
do you use flappy wheels to clean off the paint rust and welds ? it would be interesting to know, when is
a good time to buy you a super cheeseburger on the hill, love to all Ramondo.

Hi Adam, glad you are both well, if it's not a secret, where do you get your discs from,
and how much do you pay ?. when do you get to the hill ? Sat or Sundays?, best regards
Raymondo.

Before all these GERMAN vans came over and invaded England windowless tailgate we're rare and i did have an offer somone wanting to swap for a windowed tailgate, but no cash was going to part hands so i cut it out, without window makes the inside dark, visibility backing up is not good, plus i didnt like the look of a windowless tailgate so that was that out it came
