Hi started to check out the wiring / control box / and the pod









All seems to be ok but it will need a few test runs to make sure

Hi Chris had a test run today all went well but only a short run due to rain will try again later this week if all is ok I will put the mud flaps on and replace the wheels as I use an old set just for testing
Photos will follow later
All the best Chas
