  2. I wouldn’t be surprised if the powder coating and cleaning was nearly £2k , jive just had a pair of gate frames and posts coated and they were £500.00
  3. Barclays did mine by £4000 for one payment being day late
  4. I have a old shape avant if the hydraulic difflock is in it will mark surfaces on turning, more so if carried out at more than very slow speed.

    3.5 tonne truck

    Just got stopped 1.2 tonnes over weight 4.7 on weighbridge
  11. Which 3.5 tonne truck carries the most, I’m not looking for a tipper just a flat back drop side. The figures I’m getting for a transit seem to give a payload of around a tonne,
  12. You need to check the the structure before you start work, if any damage is found during the next few years you will be blamed and your insurance will suffer Thanes water employ solicitors just for this scenario and have very deep pockets, check before check after,record your findings it is money well spent. If Thames are bringing this up they either know something or Suspect 12 m is a long way down to do a repair although I’m sure Eggs will be up for it
  13. If mine and Thames were asking I’d put a video survey down the pipe before starting work then you can’t be blamed for something that already existed you need to ask yourself why are Thames water making a fuss,cover your arse!
  14. I would suggest more like 5 to 10 gallons most will run off
