    Well after a tough year with my current setup and having knee surgery etc. I have decided to do it all from the start again. Hoping that this will be the last set back and that things will be on the up.

    I must say this was a lot of stress. Nearly dropped it when trying to load it. Then the travelling from Lonehill to Dwaalboom which about 350km and then finally off loading the tank. I was a wreck at the end but once the tank was on it's place I felt like a little boy with a new toy.:thumbup:

    It was a pleasure to meet you too @EFJ, tank moves are always stressful and I am very glad you got it there safely. Will be watching this thread with great interest as seeing your other setups this can only be a masterpiece of note. Will be in touch

    I was craping myself. I actually was cruising between 80 and 100km/h and some places even slower. I am sure a couple of guys got frustrated with me.

    Hahahaha after what I have been through yesterday I will be installing canons to protect the tank.
