Looking good fella ...when will we be finished dare i ask
If all goes well I’ll be driving it next year
I don’t think they are ever finished though
You’re right there, they are never ever finished. Always something to be done
I’ve got one section of the engine bay prepped and coated in zinc rich primer.
It was a bit of a shock when I started painting and a mouse shot out of the fuel tank bay.
Did you paint it as it ran past?
No he used zinc rich primer for the mouses first coat!
It probably got a light misting as it bolted out
Started scraping loose paint/seam sealer and sanding on the other side of the engine bay.
Check that hose whilst you're there fella, you know it makes sense.
Although knowing you its already been done....
I’ll be replacing all the breather and fuel hoses with 100% bio fuel stuff when it goes back together
No doubt it’ll not be long before it chews on your wiring and anything it can get it’s teeth through.
No wiring loom and it’s not the first time in the paravans history I’ve dealt with rodents
That's coz its like the bloody Forth Bridge
When time life and
Money is no object I may do a resto/ build your all content with.
For now I will carry on with this in my own time in my own way!
Just gently playing the game Para, no offence meant. As you are more than aware I've been supporting you and your ways for years...how we forget eh...
Bottom line is what you do is still interesting so gets comment. Rue the day when no one cares x
People that have spent the time to properly get to know me
Know who I am and what my outlook is
I’ve always been an outdoorsman by nature and nurture
I bought the van in 2006 during I’ll health and getting chucked out of the forces as I was a week away from
I lost everything in that time including my job, home,friends everything I knew as normal went within a month
My health was ruined
We were on the homeless registry
Then I lost my dad my wife’s mum was diagnosed with Huntington’s then we lost her
We got kicked out of rented property after rented property
Ducked over time and time again
The one constant we have of happy times is this old van
We used the crap out of it for years and gained many memories
Then it was passed to a so called pro which only made things worse
Unpicking poor work makes many thing harder as does a
Heart that doesn’t work properly
End of the day I’m stubborn
I could have sold it during the dub boom bought a sprinter and been banging out van life hash tags
It will get finished it won’t be perfect
Finishing it is a state of mind that keeps
Some more engine bay prepping and a bit of primer
Please tell me about the thick washers?
They're item 13 on this drawing Mark:
