Our camper inactive in the drive today.

Just cut lawns with a Shanks's ball bearing COMET. This push mower was made in the 1930s and still works like a dream. Turned wooden handgrips, wooden sides to the grass-box, wooden front rollers. The rear roller is grooved and split to allow easy changes of direction and spins the cutters by a chain drive. Brilliant cutting and the ball bearings mean very little effort to push along. Eighty years old and beautifully engineered.
Pleased our camper was designed at the time when engineering meant quality rather than when 'development' gives us plastic, short lived tack.

Had our first run out yesterday. Battery had gone flat, but other than that she was fine. Using the lock-down to cover the visors and apply the many stickers we have collected.  Camping at the back of the house tonight...even in this wind!!!!

Lockdown humdrum was interrupted today by the arrival of my new cab floor mats from MadMatz. They make the cab look way too clean. Cant wait to get back to the beach and get sand engrained in them ;-)

Yesterday popped the roof and gave the gutters a good clean and wax. Weren’t really that dirty but roof hadn’t been up in a while so just wanted to check. Then gave the van a run out , took a look at the Disney Cruise Liner , had a picnic in the van , then an ice cream and came home.

Not today, at the weekend - new wheel cylinder HT leads cap and rotor fitted. Hubcap went AWOL on test drive prompting a closer look at the wheels and tires . . .

It was good driving her again! cheers

Great feeling to be back on the road again isn't it... Hope M's dentist visit went well.

Bring back the slow, belt-driven drills - no splashing from them!
And no local anaesthetic in that era
Much safer

We used Sir Percival to move a dresser last weekend. He did a trip to the tip with an old tumble drier and a load of other stuff, too.

We also camped in him, in the garage... Very Happy

Thanks mate, need to work out what i'm going to do for a spare now - the original wheels and tires are a fair bit bigger than the alloys . . .

Our spare doesn't match anyway. We've never had to use it, touch wood.
