My most sincere and welcome acceptance of your apology, thank you.
All is forgiven.
The truck is now ours and matey has gone back to the Canadian Navy.
Am currently negotiating on a wide track trailer to make a nice pair, hopefully the Ferret sand channels i am offering the owner is enough to secure it
Will start a new thread on the truck itself within the coming days.
Perhaps we can reach across the etherspace and shake hands and move on.
