That should keep the rust out. Did you have it done at one of the Ultimate centres?

Drove to JK open day and had a good time; not as chilled as camping the weekend*, but nice. sunny

(*funnily enough, as we were leaving, we were offered a camping ticket for tonight, but as we were already committed elsewhere, we passed it on to someone else who had wanted to camp and wasn't able originally, as they were all booked up).

So after a great deal of planning and thought, I fitted roof bars, i used Kitemans plan from kombi Kreative using the thule fitting kits and aero bars, rather pleased with myself.

The main things will be surf boards and my fishing rods, wife reckons they make the van smell when I carry them inside.
Have just picked up a bundle of 2 x 2 baton 3.5m long, went up on the bars a treat!

Spent several hours, cleaning inside and out, buffing and trying to remove tar splats picked up from a newly laid road in Somerset last week.

took a wheel off for the first time & put it back on again.
(checking that the rear brake drum retaining nut was not pressing on the inside of the alloy. It was fine)

Just a word of warning, I bought an LED strip light as a straight replacement for the tube, and then found that the orientation of the pins was such that the LEDs were directed at a 90 degree angle to what we needed. You can of course fit a completely new light fitting, but that is a bigger job.
