    Looks like all that rust makes a fine lubricant.

    And let's forget the first rule of freighting steel on a steel truck bed, DUNNAGE!

    I think that I've mentioned this before. Going through North Sydney one morning fairly early there was a truck parked in the middle of the road on a down hill (not much), at a set of traffic lights. the driver was standing at the side of the truck with his head on his arm leaning against the cab. Didn't think much of it except "strange"? 'til i got alongside. He was hauling 20' lengths of 12"x12"x 1/2" wall RHS. No dunnage, chained down, but the middle one got loose slid forward right through the cab alongside the driver and out through the front windscreen onto the road. Stopped with about 6" still resting on the front of the cab.
    Now I think that he was standing because he didn't want to sit in it.
