    Well almost a year since my last update! But not much has changed
    A lot of working away from home and 3 house moves in the family has meant the van has been earning it's keep all year, but not without spending my hard earned pennies along the way lol.

    The MOT last Oct resulted in new rear calipers, handbrake cables and a new windscreen, which got smashed a few days before the MOT but other than that, a clean bill of health.

    Issues arose when replacing the windscreen as the few bubbles of rust that appeared around the sceeen just kept getting bigger and bigger Luckily, it was all surface rust and the metal work wasn't too bad when rubbed back and cleaned up.
    Unfortunately I have no pictures of the before, or the work being completed, but the van now has a sparkly new screen and fresh paint all around the screen...

    Thanks for the update. Did our screen surround last year then did the roof,pillars and scuttle in grey. Broke the screen getting it out so we had a new one to.

    That looks great! I need to do mine. Mainly because my windscreen is leaking. How much for a new screen and seal?

    Mine was 160 fitted including a new outer seal thingy.
    I had real issues trying to go through the insurance because I wanted them to refit the screen after having the rust sorted! Turns out my screen excess is 100, so for the sake of an extra 60 the bodyshop recommended a local windscreen guy and it was sorted in a couple days.
