Great! I can manage that, its reality I struggle with
Just a few pics of my last week.
Starting with the Inistioge show Co. Kilkenny last Sunday

I headed off for a night up to Kilbrannish hill/forest walk

I then decided to head down to Tramore and along the Copper Coast. I wanted to do some of the Waterford Greenway cycle.

I left Dungarvan, Co Waterford this afternoon and drove up to Barretstown Camp in Kildare to surprise the kids with a VW convoy.

The van performed (almost) faultlessly. I think a dodgy earth is making my rear light do strange things but I look at that tomorrow.
Time for the couch and a cold beer.
i know what ye mean in print and front cover lol, ye mad alovely job of the van
Read this from start to finish, great resto it’s a credit to you. Visited Ireland for the first time this year and will be back in the van!
very nice 'Maluch' (126), is this Italian or Polish production?

The van has been very reliable so far this year but I've noticed a noise under load.
I eventually bit the bullet and decided to upgrade the drive shafts.
I'm not 100% that this was the issue but I thought they were due an upgrade anyway.
Also, one of my shocks had got noisy too despite it being only a few years old.

I ordered the best quality CV joints available and fitted them with new bolts. (the old ones were a bitch to remove)

Next I turned my attention to a little side project
I picked up this BMX online for €20.

Chucked it up on the rack for shows/festivals as a cheap runabout.
Then I decided to give it a resto in keeping with the van.
Stripped it down
