Reconstructed n/s rear qtr, Bit under the rear lights, incl strengthened.. all fabricated as couldn't get panels..
Inner air box in, prepped the new lower qtr/ wing panels.

Lots easier working indoors, was worth removing the high top to get the van in the garage ..

I've finally started my job list tonight. Fitted a new seal to the powered cool box!

Ordered a few bits though for some of the quick jobs. Boot struts, thermostat, awning strip....

Also priced up for the bigger jobs such as the front to back water pipes. Ouch.

Had a nightmare today removing my big bumper and tow bar, after a lot of swearing, pulling, trapped fingers and even more swearing, it finally came free. It was then I noticed the reason for all struggles.

Errm, can anyone recommend a good glue for big bumpers! :(

Not today, but Friday...had the fuel lines replaced with a Brickwerks kit. Good job too, the old stuff was leaking and crumbled apart as it came out! It's said a lot, but make sure you are running ethanol-proof fuel hose.

Made and fitted bracket to lock the ARB awning to the solar panel rack. I can't believe what a difference it's made to the stability of the ARB.
It also means I dare use the channel in the bottom of the ARB back plate to fix the drive away awning on the rare occasion we use that.

Clare reported a strange road-speed clunking from the back of the bus the other day. Yup, CV's. So off come the rear axles having first bought a large tub of moly-grease - well, being optimistic they should just need repacking...... Ah, no. Old grease looked like black lumpy curdled milk; cleaned 'em, and found the case hardening damaged on one, seriously worn on others. Glad we can still get CV's new. Hopefully get the axles back in next weekend.

Dropped my van off at the garage, suffering from terrible banging from the rear. Bracing myself for the repair costs!

I thought it was a flat tyre at first so pulled over on the hard shoulder at 5am on the M1 in the snow! Tyres were all ok but it kept making the noise, then thought it might be wheel nuts so pulled over again, jacked it up on the hard shoulder and couldn't get the nuts to budge so don't think it's that. The third time I pulled over I thought it could be CVs but again they seemed to be OK but only gave them a little wobble and there was very little movement, maybe 1mm... Will be calling the garage on my lunch today and hopefully they'll have found the cause!
