Hi

Just wondering if anybody on here regularly drives from darn saarf near southampton to the midlands (telford), I'm after finger's rangy engine/box and interior but its too far for me to go and I can't get the bits into a clio :) (although did you know you can get a 110 bulkhead, 2 4x4 16g sheets and a mini subframe in with a passenger too!) so if anybody could help me out suitable beer tokens could be arranged!

I'll probaby (98% sure) going to Paddocks in Derbycestershire on Tuesday (from Swindon) to pick up a sanket trailer body, so i'll have a tow-a-van box tailer on.

If you can get the bits to Swindon by tuesday, i'll gladly bring them up.

I come from Portsmouth to Worcester pretty much every week, so I might be able to help depending on timescales etc. I usually come up on a monday morning in my disco, but I have zero storage ability in Worcester, I might at a squeeze be able to leave the engine on site during the week, but not sure, so it would need to be a well organised thing.

Also bit concerned about the ability of my disco's floor to hold the weight of an engine... so it would probably be best in a trailer so makes more complicated.

Hi Steve,

If you have access to a trailer that would prob be better as its got a gearbox/transfer box on it and i'd probably be taking the full interior too :)

If its do-able Maybe i could meet you off the M5 or something... i'm on holiday from uni from the 9th onwards so could meet you on a monday no probs.

well if someone from down here can offer the loan of a trailer for a weekish then I can do it. might need to check the trailer socket on disco as well, not been used since I bought it. Only trailer I have access to is a bit small and not sure if it would like a substantial journey......

Engine and gearbox combo must be getting on for about 6 ft in length maybe so gonna have to be a reasonable size trailer?

So assuming a trailer turns up (rent one?) then I can bring up on a monday, you do next leg to your place and then meet me with the trailer later in the week for return to down sarf.

If you're still stuck for a trailer pm me - we have a twin axled flatbed, but not a massive one - lengthwise, an 88" just fits. Sitting in Southampton.

Hi guys

doesnt need to be a big trailer as I'm sure it could be split to make it easier to shift. I'll be in an estate with a small trailer, just a 3ftx4ft camping trailer fits a v8 quite nicely! Unfortunatly I have a 'new' licence so can only tow a small trailer anyway! If I was to meet you in a convenient place near the motorway with an engine crane and a trailer we could transfer the boxes and interior into the estate and the engine into the trailer :ph34r:
