Shrek at Kirton Lindsey

Well,

just back from Kirton Lindsey, KORC site and a mixed bag of results for Shrek the Rangie after the major refit that it has been through.

On the positive side the conversion to the QT services Weekender Kit front and back has worked well, and the truck is articulating really well and I am very pleased with the spacers that Chris gave me, Thanks.

On the negative side the front shock turrets tore off on both sides of the new kit, and on inspection are poorly welded with little penetration into the plate from the loop. In fairness to QT and White Peak, this is a pre production turret, which was given to me by Andy Daws with that proviso.

So Uncle Chris to the rescue again I think, and the front shock turret mounts are going to be arc welded back into place for me.

There is some video below of shrek articulating on the course. This is with one front shock mount on, as the other had already sheared by this point.
