Hooray perfect!! Ideally I'm after the thinner rolls but I think either would work for my project. You're based in the Lake District right? I think caver post might be the best idea

I'm in Sheffield.

I'm seeing my FiL next weekend somewhere about half way between us and the lakes (handing the kids over for half term),  can collect one of the larger rolls then then arrange to get it to you via caver post.

I'm based in London but very easy for me to pick up from Wales or Yorkshire?

I'm collecting from FiL on Saturday 27th, as I say, somewhere up North, probabaly on the A66 somewhere.  I might be able to drop it in the Yorkshire dales en route home, if we decided to take the scenic route back.

Else, Will bring back to Sheffield.  After that, it'll be up to Caver Post.

Hi Rita,

The seatbelt webbing is now in Sheffield. I can easily get it to the TSG hut in castleton if need be.

Caver post needed now I guess.

I've got a large roof box for a car that we no longer need, as you can see from the photos it's seen better days but is serviceable, you'll need your own roof bars. Collection from near Milnthorpe, it is too large to go inside a car so it will have to go on top.

(I have no idea why that photo is upside down, it's fine on my PC)

Not strictly caving related, but may be of use to a caver:  Remains of Land Rover Discovery 200tdi (the good bits, not the rusty bits)

I recently sent my old disco to the big scrap yard in the sky, but I took everything worth having off it before it went... I've sold most of the valuable stuff already and now I want some space back, so if any of the below is any use, please take it away in exchange for a donation to your local cave rescue team.

FREE, NO QUESTIONS ASKED
Front inner wings (previously fitted, but far too good to scrap, classic place to fail an MOT)
Front outer wings (these have been cut to take flared arches, but otherwise ok)
Bonnet
Front axel body
Steering wheel, column, box
Front seats and belts
Fold up boot seats (with fitting kit)
Most wiring
Springs/ shocks (standard length)
Front/ rear trailing arms
Full exhaust system (scruffy and welded up in a few places, but no leaks)
String of 6 spotlights for roof bar, with wiring (a few are cracked, but they worked last time I checked)
Tubular steel rear bumper (solid, but needs some work)
Brake callipers, ful set (probably need a rebuild, though I did do them shortly before I parked it up, so might be ok...)
Various other bits of junk...

FREE, if you need a specific bit, (otherwise I'll keep as spares for myself)
Full set of glass
Lights, window/ wiper motors, door solenoids, switches etc

FREE, to genuine good cause only (you'll need to convince me), otherwise
NOT FREE, but open to sensible offers

LT77 Gearbox (complete with transfer box and in good running order)
Differential (front or rear, they are the same :) )
Front prop shaft
Rear half shafts
Front half shafts
CV joints (genuine ones and only done about 10,000 miles)
Full floor/ sill repair panels, both sides, NEW, never fitted
16x8J alloy wheels with 265/70/R16 Marrix Puma mud terrain tyres, loads of tread and no damage (set of 4)
2" Wheel spacers, with fixings (set of 4)
Electric winch (stopped working one day and never got around to seeing what was wrong...)

Caver post, or collection near Bristol or Mendip depending on how big... :thumbsup:

Obviously the above is offered on the condition that you use it (or give it to someone who will), not just flog it on ebay  :kiss2:
