LOL Thanks Mec,

I was worried it might have broken him to be honest.

It is tacked on .... Exciting times..

Quite amazing seeing the rust on the chassis... I know its nothing to worry about and they always blast it before galv and/or powder coat but there wasn't any on it when it landed and its been dry ever since. I recall Rich H kept his for several months after prostrip got it and it was solid brown when it turned up.

I am not risking the trailer again as we are in odd weather periods. So I figure a Mercedes Sprinter will take the Chassis and will let me boot it up 70 and back 70 keeping it dry and warm. 77 squid for the day so not cheap as I will need 2 days :(

It's mad how fast it rusts up. mine is the same. as soon as the bare metal is in contact with air the rusting process starts immediately from the humidity.
I've seen red, black, brown and even green rust depending on the environment/weather the metal has been exposed to..

Great to see the frame extension tacked on looks sweet 8-)
