So I popped up a FB thread last week on the Westfalia Refuge looking for some insurance tips. Most important to me was a decent agreed value for the old girl. I just want to say a MASSIVE thanks to Christian who posted up asking me to get in contact with him.

He is a fellow van owner and 8090 member campervanster and works for Classic Line Insurance. I got a great quote with an excellent agreed value plus UK cover with Homestart & Euro (90 days max) breakdown cover. Its very nice to be able to say the service was top notch with super quick responses. :ok

It's been a pleasure Keith, really happy to have been able to help. Any problems at all, feel free to pop me a message or call the office.

All the best

Well insurance & agreed value sorted, just waiting for the revised V5 back from the DVLA. Fitted some nice pressed plates and made an over sink chopping board for the sum of £6.71 :mrgreen:

The chopping board is a great idea, I might do something similar! :ok

So presumably the chopping board mod won't invalidate your insurance...

Well I finally got the Webasto install completed last week. I bought my petrol Webasto from 'Oldiebut Goodie', top guy with an excellent reputation and he was very helpful with all my Q's.
I choose the standard westy position. I remade the panel that holds the timer in foam board as the old one was a bit tired. The timer is in the ashtray spot and I popped in a double USB too. The old ebber box just needed a little modding to cover the Webasto :mrgreen:

I bought the stainless steel surround plate and the beige air vent which goes really well with the westy interior from here Great service & fast postage.

The exhaust was a bit fiddly to fit on the syncro, I had to go over the prop so I bought some Heat Resistant Sleeving from ebay which fits great and will protect anything close to the exhaust pipe.
