    But what if you are sitting on a camp chair in the rear, (or even a straight chair), facing forward, with your feet up between the front seats? :rolleyes:

    Your right Mark but unfortunately the spelling of the words are the same but its the interpretation and meaning of these words that are changing, so in today,s world it is not to hard to unintentionally upset or degrade some people without even realising what you have done . oh well i will wave to the populace with one arm while leaning on my ARMREST with the other, there you go Mark back on track . Y,all have a great weekend ,keep cool and dry

    With engine out had a look at fuel tank and filler. Need to replace filler flange and other piece of filler hose. Filler flange easy but other bit? Where do I get?

    Finally fitted new wiper blades, that I bought from Nils a while back...........and then it rained this afternoon.

    WOW! They are awesome, and better than any blades I’ve had, including the ones that came with the bus when new! :)

    Well today I removed the array of tools,car jacks,wood blocks,car stands, assorted misc stuff, and cleaned all the flat surfaces exposed. Gave all the bits and bobs, a good clean, emptied the crud from in the bottoms of the toolboxes and satisfied, put it back tidily.
    Ahhhh the serenity.
