Van made it up from Cornwall ! The longest journey she's done in 2 years under her own power and at 70-80mph all the way affraid

so time to start the interior rebuild this weekend and give her a good clean and polish up the new paint!

I'll get some pics up when done and see you all at the next club meet (the first one in an aircooled dub!)

canvas in at last!
Damm roof weighs far to much when balancing it on your head, standing on a dodgey stool trying to staplegun and screw in the canvas/plastic strips etc.



will spend some more time on her tomoz and no doubt even more swearing when things don't go back in the same as before! affraid

At least it's the easier clean jobs now Very Happy

Fitted rest of stereo over the weekend, and managed to blow my indicator relay..?

Tried to fit new Scat Dragfast shifter, only to discover the original bolts are too short, so sort that out this week sometime.

Only got a few things left to do for BVF:

gearshift
reverse light
dual charge system

under seat carpet
indicator relay
look at sliding door track as a bit bumpy
replace rear sliding door roller
sort accelerator and tick over
T-Cut and polish

so not much left really!

bounce
