Hi Paul, good to hear from you Thumbs Up Friends have just come back from Morocco on the bikes, ferries from Spain are back to normal.
One of my favourite places Morocco, think I’ve got some off road routes somewhere as well. Let me know & I’ll try and find them…

Just an update to the build, after a bit of T cut & polish Rolling with laughter Rolling with laughter Rolling with laughter Henry is looking very smart. Couple of things I wasn’t happy with on the original build.

Chassis was Dinatol’d but always wanted it galvanised.
Wheel carrier ( Mantec) was never any good as the dust acted like cutting paste & killed it.
Recovery boards were hard to reach on the roof.
Wiring for the spots was a mess.
Roof boxes were too small

Now

Galvanised chassis & bulkhead ( painted black afterwards)
ORE wheel carrier.
Side mounted boards.
Wiring through the wing.
Large lightweight roof box.

Way hay! Fabulous to see that, especially after such dramatic pictures and reading the tale on the blog. Hopefully you be back on an even keel before long…. and staying there! Donald

Looking great and enjoying seeing the Mk 2 version of Henry coming together -as you say, a lot of T-cut !
Glad the rebuild is going on well and the modifications are taking care of the niggles that you have found on the route so far.
The sand boards look good on the side and the table feature will be useful I’m sure.
Onward and upwards

Managed to get a replacement condenser for the air con. The oem unit was still sealed but rotten, genuine ( which you can’t get) around the 1k mark. This after market unit which was very nicely made £150.00!
