Looks a treat.
What did you do with the original guards that came with the van?
I've been chasing some of those style flutes for ages.
I used to know a bloke in Wootton, his first name was Ford.

Hey guys, thanks for the compliments.

Agro, sold the guards ages ago, unfortunately.

Havn't met anyone that goes by Ford. A name I would surely rememba.

Cheers

Hi Mate,

Nice job on the van, its looking very nice.

I grew up in Wootton, my parents owned the property on the highway between the blue silo and the old church on Wattley hill rd.

Cheers, Al.
