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 . . .

Does look good! cheers

We found the alloys a bit smaller, so lowered Bumble just a little bit. Razz

Can you not pick up a single alloy and tyre?

Oh, I didn't mean I did anything, just that with the new tyres, Bumble was just a little bit lower!

Changed the duck tape on the roof, drained water out the indicator checked the tyre pressures and had another, largely unsuccessful, attempt at stain removal on the inside of the pop top . . .

Tallulah hasn’t moved for the last couple of months but she fired up at the first time of asking.
We ran her up to temp then used her to move a caravan on site.

Once done I noticed a small trail of oil where she has been and on checking, found that the oil filter has sprung a leak.

It only leaks with the engine running and she’s long overdue for a service - she did hardly any miles last year so just a suspension regrease and not a lot else - so we’ve booked her in for a full service and MOT up the road with our friendly mechanic.

In the mean time, she’s back under the car port with her buddy Max.

If DAM = DAB, then we went for Pure Highway H260Di, which was about £80 in Half*rds (now been superceded)

After 3 months of lockdown I treated Eddie to some road tax today. He’s now ready to take back on the open road!

Doesn't the A303 look tempting right now, especially heading West!!!

Our first guests arrive on Monday, but we are officially allowed to open from today so plenty of space for any brazibays willing to help us test electric points, toilets and showers before the hordes arrive!!!

Drove to the Devil's Punchbowl, Hindhead, but the car park was rammed, so went on to Ludshott Common, had lunch and a coffee and then went for a walk around the common.

Finally got around to fixing the rear cupboard, so that the door flap keeps closed (when it's supposed to! cheers )

Now need to find more things to use Gorilla glue on!

Drove to the garden centre, purchased 6 bags of soil enricher and 2 large plant pots.  I needed to leave the windows down for after a while to let the air clear. The van was humming along.

Repositioned the table legs and holders to under the rock and roll bed.  I was forever catching my shin or ankle on the sharp edges of the clip.  I also replaced the powder fire extinguisher with a fire stick, much slimmer and I'm less likely to scag myself on it also.  Also tidied up the edge of the counter-top with some transparent car boot sill protective tape. Tomorrow if its not raining too much I will fill and paint the small screw holes in the bulkhead where the fire extinguisher was located.

Ooh I just had a thought, the car boot sill tape may be an alternative to the duct tape on the roof to protect where the pop-top rubs.
