Well. Erm.
With waxing and waning enthusiasm I finally finished it off. Ish.
Well..
It's on the road anyway, well, I say it's on the road, it has an mot and is taxed.
I had to give up documenting the build as I had to just get on with it.
Biggest step and Andy coming down and spending a couple of days doing the engine loom in my particular way in PVC sleeve, very neat job he did too.
Once I remember how to gain access to some web space I'll take some pics of the interesting bits, I've tried to do my own thing in a few places rather than just do the usual copycat install.
Not been very far in it for various reasons but hope to start using it in spring along with a bell tent. Seems daft I know as I also have a westy but the girls love the tent and I like the idea of going off for a few days and still have a useable vehicle that isn't set up in camp mode.
Also, one of the girls took an interest in a canoeing and I have use of a friend's so I'll have to backtrack on something I said about not covering it in racks... A bike rack is acceptable surely?

Cheeky bugger, it's my daily at the minute fulfilling family duties with the odd Southern jaunt!

Most importantly, are you enjoying driving it? Has it turned out as well as you hoped?
