    Decided to change a few things around on the inside so here is the finished product The work board between the stove and the two storage drawers was Davids H idea and a good one at that ,{dont know why i did not think of it } any rate going to catch up with Wattie at Mildura in June so will give it a good work out on the way up there. The door trims covers is from some left over material from the curtains, waste not want not.

    Great photo Melissa, Sun Sea Surf and Kombi vans ,its like they were made just for such a photo.
    If you dont mind me asking is the Royal Enfield a restored English bike or an Indian built one, you see a lot of them in TV shows from India.

    It’s an Indian one Chris. Scott loves it. They have been building them there for years.

    Nothing wrong with them ,as far as i know they are built to the original specs , they used to build what we know as the old Morris Oxford which they use as Taxis.
    They do it well ,
    Cheers Melissa ,,,, Chris

    It was time for the "Clean once every 40 years" water tank clean. Had given it a few doses of commercially purchased "Tank Clean". But after some googling there are many options about what to do. So for the tank it got a dammed good hose out, then 75ml bleach to 50 litres. A drive around, then flushing, then 125 grams of Bi Carb of soda and a full tank, and a drive around, followed by more flushing and driving and eventually a full tank (which on Macca is 45 litres - yeah - just another 45kg of load....) I will also now subscribe to the "keep it full" strategy.

    Water looks clean, smells clean and no crud comes out of the tank. But hey - who actually drinks water.....:D

    Hi Chris,
    Would those fog lights fit on the inside of the roo bar outer lower arcs? Reckon that would look good:D. Then put another 2 lights where the number plate was/is & with all lights on it'd look like he was smiling:cool:.
    No suggestions for 'little man' other than on the passengers seat;).
    Number plate to bumper bar RHS?
    Cheers

    Hi Dave , Have put n/plate rhs b/bar, i think from a legal perspective thats where it would have to go.. Did look at placing fog lights where you suggested but will not fit maybe above the tyre on either side could be a go, just thinking ,the little fella and peace sign might go down the bottom????

    Hi Chris,
    How about fog lights to upper outer edge of roo bar so they sit next to the headlights just below the air intake. Will look like they are just 'peeping' over the edge of the spare.
    Cheers

    One of the problems in a T3 fitted with a engine conversion and a bed and drawer unit covering the engine hatch, checking fluids and topping up if needed can be a PITA especially if its raining so a while back I fitted a LED floodlight in the engine bay and wired into the reverse light circuit so I could see the two coolant bottles while looking through the open number plate flap

    Hi Dave funny you should pick that spot as it is the only place i can put them , went over to steel shop and bought two metres of flat 2mil x 4cm steel and will make the brackets tomoz and fit them to the roo bar then rewire it all, that should me busy for the day.They will be above the spare but off to the side so the tyre will not interfere with there operation {i hope } and as well they should look good .
