After about 6 months I have just worked out what your user name is all about...

Purple = Colour of van.
Ronnie = The vans name.

Fuck me I'm quick....

I thought it had something to do with your manhood and didn't want to say anything as I felt sorry for you cuz it was purple.

Cheers rich, i think it can go lower though! Twisted Evil left 15mm on the torsion thread so got a bit left, front is now level with back but once i get bed in, im hoping it will drop more! im def getting a full width r n r now, the kitchen idea is out the window thinking of this one

I noticed mine is a little smokey when cold!! Never doesnet like to start on the first go, then a nice smoke puff on the second when she starts up!!

Mine doesnt seem to be going anywhere either so I might start doing some interior work on it soon.
