Something like this?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Carplan-Waxo ... OpTs2ceRWA


One thing i would say to anyone bringing this would be,bring some white spirit for thinning and carry it in passenger footwell with the heater on during your journey. in my experience,the temp this time of year is not ideal for spraying. :-k
dont use carplan's copy of waxoyl, its utter carp, way thinner than the real thing and dries hard and cracks, buy the real thing.

Is that just long grass in the middle or a solid hump? If solid I may not get mine in!!!!

hey chris,thats a good point about the grass,i will get my mate to get the jcb blade on it,i am glad you brought that up,it hadn't occurred to me,but some of you chaps have lowered suspension,rob.
i got mine in ok, did have to dodge the potholes, and its quite low, yours is a bit more extreme though, so scraping it is a good shout!

plus, i dont bother to thin waxoyl, i heat it in a bucket of hot water. goes very thin, but dries thicker and stays as it should be after.

Well today I purchased some waxoyl, in case there is time/room, will bring a few odds and ends with me as well in case they're needed, as well as a reasonable selection of tools. Will have a look to see what I can bring for the BBQ just to add a bit.
