    That more gear than I've got now and I've been going for eighteen months!

    It sounds like you're well set up.
    Good luck to you

    No mate no work. Going in with a no lose mentality. Worst case my gears worth maybe 600 or more and easily a grand on the van.

    Only need a grand to break even.

    But ill succeed
