    Joey just gave me a heads up on this (thank you very much joey....:beer)
    My question is, are there any members on Zorg who are involved with or know any trucking company's that could transport the bonnet to the Netherlands for a decent price? I have not been involved in logistics for a long time now and all the people I knew at the time are long gone (Grampian Continental for example) so no one to give me 'mates rates' mores the pity.
    The bonnet is stored at Northallerton and is wrapped up in blankets and will be covered in plastic before transportation. It has a small dent at the front but that is no big deal. I have all ready spoken to the vendor, and he seems like a nice chap, who told me that he had had inquiries from France and Germany!!!
    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Spoke to the chap with the bonnet again last night and he had pulled it out of storage to check it over. He seems like a helpful chap and said he had a trailer that he could use to get it to the nearest port.
    He also said it could easily be transported on a roof rack, come on @Titan, get yours on the car and come over for a pint.....:D
    My boss has not been sitting on his hands either (as I thought) as he forwarded an email to me that he had sent to the body shop with a list of parts he had found, plus the bonnet.....the story continues.....
    P.S. I am not in a rush as I can not drive at the moment.
