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.

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

On the spur of the moment Scooby took us off to the New Forest on Sunday - what a FAB day out we had! Cool
Here are three pics from our mid morning stop for coffee.

Here are three more from the road on to our lunch and afternoon tea stop! Cool
We did plenty of walking too, before leaving for home, getting in just before dark.

Lovely photos Scooby. No gin in sight.

We re-fitted the roof rack for the first time in years. I'm making a better job of it than I ever managed in the past. Photo shoot of the internals this afternoon then once the new chrome door mirrors arrive an external photo shoot somewhere nice.

No drinking on day trips - tea total - but when camping - let the fun begin ! Laughing

Looking forward to seeing the results of your photo shoot Smile

Happy morning spent fitting new tiebacks for the curtains made at the end of the Summer, popping the newly made cushions on the rear seat, and checking how the mosquito screen I’m making fits/looks across the gap when the sliding door is open. The mosquito screen I made for the side window above the sink is finished and fits perfectly.

Now back on the sewing machine and finishing the mosquito screen!

MOT and service completed. All sorted for another years camping. Also half way through fitting a box to the back of the van. Still waiting for the wind to drop so I can renew the gas strut ends on the pop top.

Just fitted a new gizmo. Its a TOGUARD 8" Mirror Dash Cam Front and Rear. Not the cheapest on eBay or Amazon but it seems to be a quality piece of kit. It took about an hour to fit, most of which was chasing the cable from the rear cam underneath the headlining, plastic window trim and window rubbers to make it a near as possible an invisible fit.

The 1.0 version I had was wireless and only worked intermittently. It definitely had a proximity panic setting causing it to blank-out as soon as I reversed near to something.
