    Looks promising.............Would you still have to carry a warning triangle abroad or could you use the traffic cone in a breakdown.

    conegrats!

    Looks a bit hit and miss to me!

    Well done.This forum is getting better than tv!

    Did you know when the cone is empty it works great if you're reversing and when you nudge it it gives a reassuringly squelchy feeling instead of that horrible crunching noise when you hit something solid.

    ha

    Nice one.
    The real problem is that many professionals seem to build to my standards or should I say skill-level ie 4 year-old with hammer and sticky tape!

    Got to be cheaper than the land rover conversion in the C&CC magazine for October 2012. I had to look several times before deciding it was not a misprint.

    £72,000 and that's only for the conversion.
