They tried to break into my brother-in-laws shed a few years back but were thwarted by the fact that inside he'd welded concrete reinforcing mesh into a cage on the inside. Stopped them getting in after they prised the roof up but still they did damage to the shed.

sounds good white rags where drive shafts go ,don't think they will make a deal out of it, don't think they'll want police sniffing about .if its mine ill buy scrap price to get it back if its not damaged ,better than paying full price for second hand one,

They may even just cut there losses and let you have it as you can show enough proof that's it's yours. Like you say, they won't want the police and the inland revenue sniffing about.

Fair play to the scrappy. Mind you these days they aren't supposed to pay out cash so maybe they will stop the payment. In the scheme of things it's probably cheaper to let you have it back than get all the hassle from the police etc. Glad you got it back though mate.
