    Got the van home tonight so just went round it and got to know it a bit better. Deciding what to do first etc with the Mrs had a play with the rear seats even though their not on the rails. Thinking black roof and different alloys black tbh. We're planning on using it for day trips and also gonna eventually get a drive away awning.

    Look like part of the camshaft casing and a shim or something. It dies run.... Just. I had to move it today and yeah bellows out white smoke struggling to move. I keep looking at it. Gonna take the front end off tommrow ready for when we get a chance to look at it thoughly. Want to start thinking about cosmetics too. I think if I start working on the thing the rest will follow

    Got round to taking the front end apart for easier inspection today. Actually enjoyed it. But me and the Mrs are at a loss to what we can do in the back. We just want it minamal really but some good led lights and a reupolster maybe? Oh and what's the possibility of short shift mod? Thanks.

    In ours we just have one seat on mushroom bolts. Its carpeted out and we can throw an air bed in it. The short shift mod is an easy little mod. There's a how to in the tec section.Click image for larger version.
