  1. TBH they are all getting on a bit now and most will have been through a variety of hands, some sympathetic, some most definitely not.
  2. Insurance certainly is a game no matter the item covered. Totally off topic but equine insurance has to be one of the biggest rip-offs. You insure the horse for injury / sickness & vet fee cover and during the period of cover it injures itself but the vet and you manage to nurse it back to fine health - at a cost. You claim for the fees and treatment and the insurance duly pays yet come renewal time you find the insurers have excluded and will no longer cover those bits of the animal that are now fully healed and back to normal. To use an analogy with motor insurance - you dent a wing, claim on the insurance and they cover the cost or repairs - but come renewal time discover that they will no longer cover that wing for any further damage.
  3. Well if it's forum related being an admin of said forum might mean I may be able to assist
  4. Is this personal or forum related?
  5. 2 pack finish? As Mo says some of those galvanised parts do look silver painted - bumper included. Treadplate
  6. What sort of money do vehicles like yours fetch in France these days then?
  7. Me too, invest in a pipe bender and use the originals as a pattern. Never had one harden and snap in the past.
  8. Moved to Defender forum and title changed
  9. As Fridge says it depends on what the powers that be reckon what a camper should be. I doubt slapping a rooftent on a rack and carrying a can of water and a little stove would satisfy them?
  10. A polite request - for the second time: Enough now. Thanks.
  11. Point taken and your opinion has been logged. Please, enough now. Thanks.
  12. In reality that is exactly what we do now
  13. To quote John Lydgate: “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time” A quote from American poet William Carlos Williams: “It is not what you say that matters but the manner in which you say it; there lies the secret of the ages” Both quotes say it all really.
  14. As an aside, rightly or wrongly [as I'm far from perfect - just ask my wife] I have added "OT" to the title of the original post.
  15. Ok Les I'll bite - albeit very reluctantly. Firstly my sincere condolences for your loss. I'm not going to get drawn into the off topic argument on this thread, as you say it has been done to death umpteen times in the past. Quite frankly given the subject matter I feel this is just not the thread for the issue to be raked over yet again, I just don't feel comfortable doing so - sorry. Had it galled so much by far the preferred approach would have been to make one or all of the A&M's aware of the concerns via messenger. We would have course listened, as we do to the concerns of any member, and acted if required after discussion in the A&M section.
