 :-X  :'( Very sad indeed. I don't think I would be brave enough to do that.

It has been more than three agonizingly long years since my last post but ........... the buyer is a stand-up guy who kept to our arrangement that if she ever came up for sale again, I would have 1st option. So I bought her back and our home feels entirely complete again.It all happened right at the start of our Covid 19 lockdown and has been an equally agonizing 6 weeks till long distance haulers could operate but this morning I finally collected her !

So the other day I get a phone call from my old mate Cris Ingram, the owner of R&D Off Road, wanting confirmation that Olive was actually back in my hands. Then he casually informs me that he has always had long-term plans/dreams to build proper front and rear bumpers cum spare wheel carriers, for the 40 series range of cruisers but that somehow the timing was just never right, until now.
Anyhow long story short, he wanted to know if they could borrow Olive for a few weeks in order to design and build front and rear bumpers under their well known Gobi-X range of bumpers for the local and export market.Well he is a mate and we did colaboratively build Olive's roll cage and rear half pipe doors etc exactly 10 years ago, so I was more than happy to help out - besides it is not as if Olive was going to go anywhere soon under the Covid lockdown restrictions. After a short tour of their impressive factory, I left her in their care.

Yesterday I received some pictures showing that the design process has finally started  ...

My chopped ARB maskbar with winch was removed and carefully put aside for re-fitment later.




Even the Long Ranger LRT together with my towbar was stripped out




Some very rough drawings to get the creative juices going ...










Watch this space.
