...Currently attached to a 17' 3.5ton car trailer having done over 800 miles this week, 400 of which were towing. 24.7mpg unleashed 19.7mpg hitched and loaded (about £300 in diesel :shock: ).

Took the 1 Tonne FC101" that I have owned for 16 years to its new owner :| .

Off to pick up my newly powder-coated OEM alloy wheels in a minute.

They're not done yet :evil: I didn't wait for the call to say they're ready, but I'm due back in NI soon so thought I'd call in anyway...

I'm using a local company who do industrial and drop-in customer work called Custom Wytelynes Coatings in Chatham. I've had a few bits done by them (motorcycle luggage rack, set of steel wheels, obscure mounting brackets) and they've done very nicely. £35 a wheel for blasting and coating, they do alloy and steel (different ovens and blast media). http://www.custom-powder.co.uk/

I ought to put this in the relevant section...

By the way I see you'r not far from me at all...
If your ever passing feel free to knock round for a cuppa...

It's the stuff used to coat the bedliners of pick-ups and the like, judging by the way it stood up to my collisions with trees and rocks :lol: it is pretty tough stuff :cool:

Did you spot MUX up at WCO when you were there Toby?

He's ready for me to collect - just gotta find a break in the world cup schedule & shoe horn me Pa into the 120 for a run up the motor way. Hopefully Thursday afternoon :)

I took the bike on the trailer and then left it all there... :D
