They didn't get rid of all the trees yet, they're sawing them down as quickly as they can...

Should not take too long, Croatia is a small country.

Ordered lock ring/ o'ring from stealers, will collect later and hopefully sort the leakage.
Must take picture of bodging done there, it would make Jesus cry, even if it is a bit of carpentry after all. :roll: :oops:

I reckon whoever did that found that the seal and locking ring are a bitch to put back with the tank in place, did bodge of the century there and flogged it quick :roll: How did you find fitting them?

I think it was the owner before the last, because the latest one found insurance too expensive for himself and never drove it!
I cant complain much, I did buy it for about £500.
