It was pointed out today that the last two posts on this page were duplicated as the first two posts on page three. I then deleted the two posts on page three but somehow the software deleted BOTH copies of BOTH posts. So unfortunately they are now lost.

EDIT - Notice that this post was the last on page 2 but again duplicated at the top of page 3.

And when I edited this post to add the comment about the further duplication, the additional information is present in BOTH posts - very weird.

Boronia,
At this stage,will not receive signage as these are not the production models but vehicles supplied by Higer Australia till the production machines arrive.The underfloor Munro A/C machine was returned to Higer without being used so as to keep a standardised spec.
