G'day everyone! Her's my first blog update!
Workshop: Now getting ice cold in workshop,you guessed it a Barn built in 1833 say no more!
Dofygate Ltd: Ongoing R+D machining going well with new versions of the gate being developed,the latest being a multi bar carbon fiber deer gate.
Discovery2 Chassis Rails and X-members.
Between jobs i have managed to get 5 sets of Chassis rails and x-members welded   up ready for sale. Also put an add on the Discovery 2 boys club web site. Will also get some business cards made to hand out to Discovery 2 owners as i see them. Also developing some stainless steel head light protectors 15mm wide x 3mm thick for D2's. According to the D2 boys a lot are getting stolen and re-sold on various auction sites!!
That's all for now,

Hi mate, D2 Boys Club member here. I am just in awe of the quality of work you produce, not just for the Disco but across your whole range. I'll know where to come when I need to fettle my D2 chassis - have you got prices yet?

G'day Dave, Thanks for the positive comments,a great way to start my first Blog. With regards to the prices the rails are 295.00 a set and the x-member is 170.00 but if you buy a kit it's 450.00 with about 25.00 post.I know you can get a set cheaper on ebay but not this lenght or guage,they are also reinforced throughout with ends caps meaning that once welded on they are a sealed unit. You know where to find me now Dave! thanks again, Skip

Hi Skip Love the service. Brilliant communications and business services. Really pleased to have made the choice to use RKD Machine Shop Services for my Discovery 2 TD5 chassis repairs. Hope the next time I am down in England I get the opportunity to meet you guys. I hope I can repay your goodwill someday. Wishing you all the best. Andy.

Hi Skip, It is such a nice change to talk to a true craftsman, who has the time to listen to your requirements and provide a first rate service. The drive hub of my Morgan 3 wheeler that you modified for me works a treat. A good job at a great price. Thanks...
