  1. Winner overall was the guy in a G reg Astra. As normal I didn't trouble the leaderboard in anyway! I am thinking about having a go at the 3 sisters Autotest in December if anyone fancies that.
  2. 40 cars turned out today. Excellent morning session
  3. Over the weekend I did another job on the van before festival season. One of the most annoying things on the MH was the fact that with swivel seats and leisure battery under drivers position, your eye line is right at the top of the windscreen. With a long drive this becomes really flipping annoying. Luckily you can buy reduce height seat bases so this was the plan. You can see the difference between the two bases. Remove the battery and the handbrake mechanism. Before bolting the new one in Next job was to relocate the battery. There is space in the compartment next to the water boiler which never gets used. Plus it means the cabling can easily be rerouted A distribution box was added with fuses for the battery charger and also the diesel heater controls. Then seat installed with a little faffing Followed by tidying up cables Makes such difference to the height as you can see here Quite pleased with the job. Will improve driving immensely. Still left to do is a few jobs on bathroom to finish it, build a dog barrier for between the front seats and remove the old sideways seat belts. Oh and fit air bags at the back
  4. Holy Autotest Ressurection .. Moving north of the border, I have had to join the local club - Saltaire Rally Club. I have entered the next Autotest on 13th August in Errol. It is on an airfield so should be a hoot! If any one fancies coming to have a go it is £35 for a full day days fun! https://www.saltirerallyclub.co.uk/events The next one after this is 11th October
  5. Holy thread resurrection Now I am up in bonnie scotland, I have been looking for some autotesting. I am planning to enter the Autotest in Errol, probably in an i3. My nephews are up so they will coming with me. https://www.saltirerallyclub.co.uk/events Anyone else fancy it?
  6. Having mostly modernz means that fettling is kept to minimum - which is quite good. One of the spring projects has been focusing on the motorhome. Last August the damp smell got too much in the bathroom so this happened As per normal the bathroom had leaked rotting the wood. The quote to fix was £6k so instead I ripped it out and then spent the winter ignoring it. Dehumidifier kicked into action and dried out the wood. It was then treated to Ronseal wood hardner to seal it. Based on some YouTube videos, the current approach seems to be fitting pvc panels at 5mm. We went for sparkly white to make the room feel bigger. The panels really aren't too bad to fit, although when the back wall curves in odd ways it can be a challenge. There might be one corner that has a lot of sealant in it. One upgrade was removing the mahoosive bathroom door that weighed 8 kg and opened into the living space Instead a tambour door was fitted - miles better It is mostly finished. I need to work out how to trim round the window, decided whether to fit a sink again and put in some storage for bits. I learnt a lot and quite a few things I would do differently next time. Once the hot and cold water has been tested then I will box in the shower and then seal the back of the toilet. Overall cost with all bits is about £900 with the door being £150 of that.
  7. Great idea. Also avoids the 101 PayPal payments stating Lube Special Delivery Donated to pay for the air in the tyres
  8. I want to know what the free lunch looks like ... I ha e visions of slightly curly sandwiches, slightly out of date crisps and a bottle of panda pop.
  9. Those front seats are the best advert for being in a Throuple ever.
  10. Got to be 5 spokes.. you Def aren't a gangsta bad boy
  11. Och Aye Glad you caught that on the AX. Once the ride is sorted I think it will be a great car.
