Congratulations on the MOT pass, Scooby
It could help us all check our campers if you were to point out where the welding was needed.

The front wheel arches, by the sink drain plug and at the rear where a tow bar would be fitted (Scooby does not have one).

Thanks Scooby for the info on rust areas. Will check our camper too.
Was it the outside edges of the front arches or perhaps the flat area inside the door?

Hi OSG - It was the flat areas behind/around the wheels (not on the external arches)

We did the same last year to create more headroom (and there was no way we could ever climb up there!!). I got a bit of Maple finish board from B&Q to match the rest of the interior

That looks very nice.

I'm afraid the old piece of board I used looks very similar to yours - colour etc. - but it's more of an off-cut, as it has a corner cut out and doesn't match the grey colour of our units! Laughing

Drove back from Oxford, having spent a couple of nights at the C&CC campsite there doing some work things.

Bumble brought some needed colour to an otherwise very white motorhome-filled site. jocolor

Squirted some aerosol Dinitrol ML and Dinitrol 3125 using their 60cm extension nozzle wand on the cans.
Holes in front and rear chassis members. The holes under the front which feed the nozzle up and over the hollow front wheel arch edges. Drain holes in bottom of all 3 doors, rear engine hatch and rear door used to insert the wand. Had newspaper ready to catch the drips.
Only a partial job as the holes inside the rear arches which give access to the hollow there, and the holes in the lower corner of the  front arches which give access to the cills, are covered over with underseal just now.

Charged the starter battery and leisure battery overnight.
Checked the oil, pumped up all of the tyres and tightened the screws on the sliding door handle.
All in preparation for a festive day out somewhere with Scooby - after Christmas but before the New Year - weather permitting!
He doo enjoy this traditional little trip out - often to the New Forest.

Numpty customer in an Audi R3 decided he’d try taking a short cut across the meadow to reach the log cabins, needless to say he made it less than halfway before bogging down and bottoming out.

Used Tallulah and a tow rope to pull him out.

It happened again! scratch
This time in a Toyota and Tallulah knew exactly what was required although Max was on standby in case one kombi didn’t have enough pulling power.

Just need to fix the tyre marks across the meadow now.

It’s not like we say hello and leave them to it, everyone gets a copy of our site map and is shown exactly where to go and how to get there.

Lovely bright day on Sat so after her exploits on site, we decided to take Tallulah for a run out to West Bay. Fish and Chips on the harbour wall and a wander along the beach and around the town. She could do with a good clean but that will need to wait for another day.

I hope it is a good weekend for you. Sadly over here the weekend looks terrible. Leela still wrapped up in her garage waiting for warmer, dryer, less windy days.
