    new piece welded in. Not perfect but glass fits so happy with that. Body filler will sort the rest. Hardest bit to do yet. Plate was curving in two planes. Took a couple of attempts to get the creases out. Had to cut it into three sections to get it bent round neatly

    do the nissan cabstars share the same corrosion problems as the navara and other makes of pickup, is it the same chassis as the navara or is this a completly different machine, engine under cab must be awkard for servicing etc. do the cabs tilt?

    Small lorry

    It looks like the cheapest/handiest option but can't go offroad. Running a Navara just now probably keep it for another year. If the chassis holds out! Maybe the cost of cars will have come down by then

    Had a single cab hilux 2005. Good handy truck. Kept it all well waxoyled and looked after it. Didn't seem to make much difference in how long it lasted the rust got it in no time

    Small lorry

    Have licence for artics so ok on that side. It's just the cost of the pickups and how long they last before chassis is knackered or engine gives bother made me think about this currently running a d40 navara. Will a 7.5 toner be a lot harder on fuel than a pickup I would imagine that they will...

    Looking at price of used 4x4 pickups seem to be getting expensive. For what you pay they don't seem to last. Rust or engine issue. Does anyone use 7.5 ton lorries instead of 4x4s for general farm work. They seem to be a lot cheaper. Maybe better for towing also

    found the bolts at the front . Came off no problems then. Painting the cab after welding is done. Top of cab at the back needs a patch so thought it would be easier taking the roof off. Might not be so easy putting it back together 😬

    This is first year in this plot. It wasn't cultivated for a long long time. Been growing them for a few years and this has been worst year. There's a lot involved in growing swedes! How will I weed them if the mesh is over everything. I am probably doing it the old fashioned way. Use a Massey...
