We've never had breakdown cover even though we do travel long distances in ours, so I'm afraid i can't help much, but hopefully someone will be able to help you! :)

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
