Here's some photos of my custom made rig pole that is for sale, fully assembled it's 4.5m long and 5.6Kg and is made up of 3 sections:

1 - overall length 165cm, OD 37.8mm, wall thickness 3.4mm
2 - overall length 147.5cm, OD 50mm, wall thickness 3.5mm
3 - overall length 147.5cm, OD 50mm, wall thickness 3.5mm

it's very stiff and, I think, very light for an ally rig pole.

I am looking for £300 or near offer and collection from Milton Keynes or Abingdon, I can deliver it if you live somewhere in the MK16 to OX14 postcode area for a small charge.

I really don't want to post it unless I have to...

I tried that but a yard was charging like 400 for a 20ft pole nd they for some odd reason wouldn't cut it.

Too bad...that is unreasonable. I'll go to the yard I resourced for you if you'd like haha, I'm being serious.

Idk about shipping cut alum to you but it would be waaay cheaper than 400

Anyone ever been told they need a permit? I was told I am a professional based on my rig by a park ranger today...

Haven't got to editing it... but this was fun.

Yeah, unfortunately.

And they are right if you are doing it commercially, but if it is your own car and you are just doing it for you then technically they can't do anything about it. There seems to be a pretty big push for permits in parks in recent years.

Gotta nickel and dime everyone any way they can.

Did some rig shots with the New Volvo FH 16 with 750 hp truck last weekend. It's was raining cats and dogs that day, but worked for me. The whole combination has a weight of 90.000 kg, so you don't push this truck ;)

QUOTED IMAGE

it was a nice starting image, but you can see exactly where you used a way-too-dark and way-too-hard brush to darken stuff up.
