Like the idea of drawers
Have you looked in show us yours? There's lots of inspiration there ( and the threads tend to be shorter than restoration section threads! )
Thanks for the tip. Will take a look.
Is that how come you've gone all techno?
This sound amazing! I'm soooooo jealous. live the dream, good for you.
thanks Geordie. I feel very lucky
This thread is very long because its great. I don't know if this has been mentioned so here goes,
engine replace anything that need replacing and have a flue cut off fitted to the old bus.
Not being able to hack more than a weekend in the last one pushed over the edge. The last month would have been pretty grim with no poptop, no sink, no 240v/charger, a postage stamp floor space, small table, silly shaped storage, pita reaching stereo, no 12v sockets, light porous blinds, lightweight summer awning, dim led lights, too firm bed...
Then yes ditching atlas, phone, laptop, camera, all their chargers and a row of books for a smartphone a Kindle and a satnav has saved a lot of space.
Also buy some P20 sun cream for the bodywork.
Hopefully the engine is ok as it's quite new. What's a flue cut off? Not sure if it has one.
Haha...factor 50, I'm going to be by the med in August ;-)
Welcome aboard ,the rollercoaster
Biggest killer of these old buses is fire, flue cut-off switch stops flue from your tank in the sad event off a fire breaking out, it looks like you have a mint engine there, I always try and plan for the worst and hope for the best.
You should got to tecenders weekend and meet a lot of experienced people that will give you good advice Sickboys and others have travels a lot in Europe. thats on my to do list.
He means fuel cut off
Thanks Geordie. Will definitely make sure I have one of those.
Am planning on going to the weekend at the end of April...so much to learn!
Thanks, should have realised...but not really sure what a fuel cut off would be either, hehe. Will find out soon!
Hi Art B, Thanks!
Hey @Victoria , your plans sound fab, I'm jealous. I'm fairly new here, I've learnt all I know from this forum, which isn't a lot but it's cheap entertainment. Joking aside, I'm amazed at the knowledge of the folk on here, and the willingness to help and advise.
It'll be our first techenders, look forward to meeting you there.
Hi Beckybutty, haha...it is very entertaining at times!
Look forward to meeting you at techenders.
