Smartened up the front - some clear indicator lenses and new chrome headlight surrounds. Very Happy

New year's Day at Westward Ho with some friends, and mess about in the sea. Did anyone else take advantage of the nice weather?

Buzz got his 2019 MOT today and usual set of advisories "slight play in ball joint but not considered excessive" - so all set for excessive play and having a ball camping as soon as the weather warms up!

Took Eddie out for a lovely long drive. He sounded a bit rough after a long spell in the garage but as soon as the hot oil started flowing around the engine he started to purr again.

Took Tallulah for a blast over to Glastonbury for a few hours, the cross winds on the A303 were a bit hairy and Glastonbury felt like a wind tunnel, but a nice day out none the less.

Almost finished refurbishing the battery compartments. New leisure battery, split charger relay and car battery trickle charger installed. Was dragged off to do other things before I could finish.

Picked her up from the restorer! Woo Hoo. The paint job is lovely. Not hugely different to the previous colour, just a better match for the seats and lovely and shiny.
Also took her to have the immobiliser reinstated. Job done quickly and cheaply.

Fitted new headlamp surrounds (very fiddly to get them to clip in to the groove and stay on ), Put the VW back on the spare wheel cover and refitted the cover. Started cleaning the van.

refitted the R&R bed adding a webbing strap to make raising the bed easier (better late than never), fitted new aerial for the radio.

Fitted left handed headlamps ...... be methodical when you change a light unit folks.  I attempted to do this in a rush just before I left the UK for the island, and kept blowing fuses!!  My mistake being inverting the two wires on the side lamp holder - they are sided - I suggest you mark one so you know which is the positive/negative before you disconnect both.

Next job .... a new fog light for the 'other side.' Basketball
