  3. Self isolation :( that doesn't sound like much fun, especially when the world is returning to some sort of normality.

  5. Hopefully you'll recover quicker than you think, or are told. They said 3 months to me, the physio is the decision maker, I had an appt and my neighbour had forgotton about her offer of a lift to the health center, so I got in the car and drove there :eek:, saw the physio who gave me the once over and said I think you should try to drive, its a bit early for most at six weeks but your recovering well. It was one of those moments....do I tell the nice lady how I got here, or not :confused:

  9. Changed the oil and oil filter on Gusbus, the oil was black and thin, not very good for saying its only done 1450 miles.

    It didn't smell of petrol.

    The only differentiator was Castrol Classic 20/50, I tried that instead of my go to Morris Goldenfilm. Needless to say Ive gone back to it!

  10. Found and fixed the dodgy wire to the alternator control box thingy, that was probably the root cause of my fuel pump woes.
     
  11. where/how do you store the window vents when driving etc?
     
  12. Drove in it like a mad thing to get to the timber yard by 5 pm as the website says they are open until then..

    They shut at 4. So drove it like a mad thing back home.

    Try again tomorrow morning for 8 am when they say they are open according to the door.

    Knocked up some slightly extended front brake pipes. Now I'm on a roll, I might as well do the whole lot. It's very soothing and Zen-like.

  20. Decided to rubber mount the Seaflo fan to see if it would be quieter.
    After it was off and I’d drilled yet more holes in the cab floor, I decided it would never line up as well. Then put it back exactly as it was!
    So that’s an hour and a half gone and all I achieved was emptying the corrugated tube!

    At least it won’t blow into the cab now.
