very nice base to start with, looks like you've got plenty of room too. Did it come with wheels?

Yes plenty of room ,well sort of, Its at my parents house , My mums 4wd has to park in there too, ( i hate when I go in there and she must of had a wine or two and sometimes she has parked like half a foot away from the datto)

Yes I got the wheels as well, ( Castor wheels ) Just jokes , I got the wannabee wheels( or our ever they are spelt )
