That pickup holding, if I'm correct, 20 barrels... Not roped down or anything. I imagine it is based on some old B&W photo?
A fellow fourm member on here, belive it or not showed me his family's old car , carrying empty barrels that they were taking to be delivered, modified with barrels over the *cab*

Had a set of hillman over fishplate railclamps, play up...the bolts were facing the platform.(my bad) and seased up..
Only way was to dremile the brass as the stainless steel bolts too hard ..replaced with massoth version.. 20210402_140455.jpg 20210402_140231.jpg 20210402_140228.jpg 20210402_155549.jpg 20210402_174039.jpg

What a shame, some penetrating oil (wait a day) then a shortened Allen Key may well have done the job. Never like to trash anything unless totally impossible. Have found that on occasion I have broken the screw, but possible if some thread sticking out to get both bits out and replace with a new screw. Someone linked a UK supplier of the correct sized screws in Mad days I think.

Looks like it was an over clamp and they can tend to bend the screw with enthusiastic tightening causing eventual broken screw. How do I know this.......
