The van now weighs 2.4 Tonnes Net, it was 2.7. Taking the rear seats out did the trick. Thanks to Duffield very helpful in weighing the van. Only £10 :)

The plan was to put my motorbike in the back and drive off into the sunset. What actually happened was Peter and I went to a garage around the corner to get tooled up. After two hours we managed to remove two off the smaller seats. It was painful, we even ended up saw one bolt off. Thank you Peter! Sunset well an truly missed!

Cheers Gary
