I don't know how much a phone box weighs, but the glass is 1/4 inch thick and much of the timber is hardwood. The roof is galvanised sheet tin and the ceiling is 1/2 inch thick lining boards. But despite the kilos, getting it on and off the truck was simply a case of manpower.
However, repairing it required a bit more effort.

|I repaired and repainted as much as I could before we stood it up.|

|The bottom of the door and walls needed new timber and reglazing.|
|Friends, family and the 1948 Fergie all helped to stand it back up.|
|Rolex is very happy with the final result.|
