A video of the last trial I attended before lockdown. It was at catlow, was nice to go there as I've been attending that trial site since I was a baby and this was the last time it was going to be open because the quarry is re-opening. It was unusually slippy this year, and I now have some Fedima Sirocco 225/75R15 100Q's being delivered, they're 10mm skinnier  and a softer load rating than what I have atm, so should be a lot better even though they do have a theoretical 12mm smaller diameter.

The welding a nut to a bolt is a personal favourite of mine, it proovides a heating and "quenching" element at the same time. Another method to stop the bolt snapping is to work it back and forth a bit, for example 1 turn out, half turn in, 1 turn out, can be time consuming but it's saved a lot of bolts in my time.

The Westfalia is a personal favorite of mine, such a retro looking 'Mog

That's a proper merc winch on the front, quite the collectors item and just an all round cool thing to own  8)

Competing against land rovers and jimneys and SJ's still got the best turning circle  ;D

second polybush install vid here, fitting to rear axle:


And a video of the last trial i did:

And a how to for transferbox alignment:

Nivas get a bad vibration when the transferbox isn't aligned properly, but it's an easy fix if you know how. Trial went fairly well, first in my class, cause i was the only one in my class  :D
