    Thought yours wasn’t going to be ready??
    Did you have an interior or sleep on the floor?? :)

    Home again after a lovely weekend as always; great to catch up with everyone, and big thanks to all those who helped with the sliding door seal and the new throttle linkage. The van drove really nicely on the way home, with a lovely smooth and not at all wobbly accelerator pedal. Sadly the 15 minutes of torrential rain that I drove through when almost home has shown there still to be a leak into the cargo area that the new seal hasn’t fixed, but that’s for another day now - the new seal is fab anyway and the door fits better with it so it wasn’t wasted. I’ll be pro active with the hose pipe tomorrow and see what’s what.

    Thanks again all for an ace weekend, see you in April

  4. Totally last minute adventure

    Interior bloke wasn`t ready for mi van so decided to go anyway , despite the van not having turned a wheel since i started ripping it apart last November ....o_O

    I had the noo bed bolted in so that`ll do , only a couple of nights so not a problem but for the lack of curtains :D

    Driving up i had a knocking on what i thought was the front right but after driving it around the field with a few people chasing and listening for the knock ( in a Benny Hill stylee ) turned out to be from the rear - knocking CV joint so not a problem , it`d get me home ..

    Good weekend , sorry not to see you there .

    I think it has something to do with your door. Maybe it needs pulling in a bit more

    Yep I think you’re most likely right unless there’s some small hole in the wheel arch all the way through to low down on the bulk head ( don’t even know if that is possible although it looks like it should be) Hopefully the hose pipe tomorrow will reveal all

    Tardiss, a DeLorean is far too posh for us Kirkby folk :D

    Um yes I was..... but I kind of decided against it.... and got going a bit late so I probably would’ve missed the low tide to get across to Shell Island.... probably makes sense to go when I’ve got more time rather than rushing. Sitting here at home eating the food that I’d packed for Wales does feel a bit sad though

    Aah ok, you would probably be right to give yourself more time to explore Wales. Good to meet up again, see you in April:thumbsup:

    Good to see everyone.

    If you didn't come because of predicted bad weather, then you are a knobber.

    We live in Britain. It was a bit windy on Friday, it rained a little bit, but the sun also made an appearance.

    We even had a bit of Frisbee action on Sunday.

    Roll on the next techenders
