  1. Hello! So I've got three quotes for a chipbox build on my 3.5t Ford transit tipper. All in the region of £4-5k plus VAT for the basic body, plus extras. The headache, apart from the ££££££, is about which material to go for: aluminium plank, and/or GRP / fibreglass coated plywood. It's my first chipbox build, so would love to hear your views. The two main considerations I can think of are weight and durability. One guy only works with aluminium boards, and says he's never had any justifiable complaints about durability. No mention of lining any of it with ply. Another (Tipmaster) says aluminium planks are prone to tearing on impact or if caught with a saw (we do a lot of cutting down on the back). He recommends lining the aluminium sheet headboard with wisa deck (ply), and making the sides in GRP (fibreglass coated marine ply). He says GRP is much easier to repair and replace. He could also build it in ally plank for about the same price. The third guy has quoted for both options, but won't make a recommendation as to which is best. Any advice very gratefully received! Luke
