    Excellent job Mark
    This is a major problem with these awnings.Had the same issue when fitting mine.but I overcame it in a similar fashion. But not quite as neat as yours. Like the way u have done it.

    Thanks Chris....it’s not as perfect as I’d like but I did all the work while the awning was on the bus.
    It would be a lot easier and more accurate to do the modification on the track, on a workbench.
    It serves the purpose though.....;)
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Spent some time in the drivers seat of the Kombi on the weekend. Just can't seem to find why it isn't out on the road completed....

    Dead set. Not sure what wheels we'll be in but I'm up for it.
    Stones and coke, Rum and creaming soda, the vodka is Bec's and there may be an excess of homebrew at our house. All I need is to get locked down so I can have some time off. Seems like I'm doing more hours than before all this started!

    I tried to start Little Red yesterday but nope - battery flat. Can't really drive it anywhere at the moment anyway.

    I hooked up two, onto two cars I was looking after in Storage King garages....... long enough leads, and did the trick beautifully! ;)

    From memory, only about $35 on eBay, and panels only measure 340mm x 230mm.

    Melissa,
    I’ve found that if I put a prescription on the front seat I can drive anywhere; I need to get some medication. :)

    The 75 Bay got started but that's it - not driven.
    I did buy a solar trickle charger for Little Red on ebay today.
