Fitting a canopy over the standard tub was a mistake. It is all serviceable and functions as intended . I should have dumped the tub and built tray /canopy back in 2013. My next ute will get a "butch built" tray and canopy. See a lot of mud tires that only have tar stuck on them :? .... :lol: :lol: ...

Written evidence of EVERY THING. Consider getting an independent engineer to do a detailed report. Seek legal advice.
Just remember you have $100,000 invested , and even if you have a "win" it may cost you more than the it's worth in time and money.

Carbon based fuels. We probably should know so we can plan the capacity of these new energy sources. Or is it a case of just keep adding to the stuff we have and hope it all works out.
