    Default Gritters out in Berkshire...

    Yep, they're out already down here, just seen one pebbledashing the M4.

    I think I'll be constructing a 'car bra' at work tomorrow out of masking tape and bubble wrap.

    Mind you, after one of my drivers opened his cab door into the path of a passing Van the other day, I have a new friend who has a bodyshop!!

    The walls in the main show area are painted in a particularly fetching metallic black, metal flake design, asked how much to paint a lorry, bearing in mind when I go it alone, I want something subtle, but stands out. Not as much as you think was his reply!

    Also on display was a big bike with a Pearlescant red marble effect petrol tank, now that's a nice effect! Got me thinking big time!!

    Sounds good.

    So are you thinking of getting into the haulage business then? (please excuse me if if I've missed anything in other threads! lol!).

    Been in it most of my life in one way or another!

    Plan is in a couple of years, move to France, buy a place with outbuildings and land and start two businesses. One being holiday lets in gites on the land, the other involving the purchase of a decent tractor unit and run peoples trailers for them.

    Plan on working two weeks on, two weeks off. Knowing me it will end up working 52 weeks on and 0 weeks off!

    Ah, good plan. I'd like to move somewhere else, but the significant other won't move away from her family...
