Does anyone have any advice for cheap tickets.
Price for a 7.5 T truck oneway more than 200


How much space do I need for both.
Can we stack the parts too?
I know, sorry many questions
To transport 2 kits you will need a van this size:

1500kg high top van, most customers use this size of van for one kit and there is loads of room left.

I bought 2 kits

A long Mercedes Sprinter is perhaps too small

We'll see what Chris says

I have a very special question
The father of my buddy is looking for 4 of these air outlets
It is a 1973 Jaguar E-Type V12
The Grilles for the air condition (U.S. model)
Maybe someone knows where to get the air outlets.
Would be great maybe it works even when we are in the UK this week.

HI,
Now we have a medium-length high Sprinter. hopefully both kits go inside.
With the Sprinter we can go faster than 80.
The sprinters we get from the Father of our buddie who also has the Jaguar.
I would like to do him a favor (with the air outlets)

Hi all,
3 days and 2000 km further we would like to say thanks again Chris!
Everything has worked out fine, but the time was too short. We could not even visit someone.
I just did some pictures and then I go to bed.

Best Regards
Irfan and Heinrich

Today we started.
Both roll cages were painted and customized.
Then we cut my rear end and adapted. The NB is not so simple. The side panels are a lot wider. But it is possible. Tomorrow we will match
Irfan `s rear end.
I have a question about the inner boot extender. Has only the lower part will be reduced by 2.5 " ?
About an answer I would be very happy
