It is a very strict check involving removing wheel hubs etc and checking all brake, suspension and structural components. The truck passed the test and two happy fellows were driving home when disaster struck... The bonnet flew up on the motorway and wrapped itself over the windscreen and onto the roof.
Very scary as they couldn't see where they were going. James was driving and managed to get the truck stopped and off the road without coming to grief. They managed to get the bonnet down and tied it shut before returning home rather dejected with this rotten luck.
5 hours later .... + a rebuild of the damaged bonnet hinges and .... Yahoo - Good usable bonnet with just a few little dents still to be picked out of it.
They re engineered the bonnet safety latch so they never will have this problem again.
The truck is now on the road and there are two happy fellows.... James took Abbey Christmas shopping in it over the weekend. Looks good, sounds good & goes good.
