    Hacked off the passenger inner and outer step, read a small section of a Sydney Sunday paper dated 25/10/09 which had been used for fill jambed inside the old one and used my artistic skills to extensively reshape a supposed replacement panel which, whilst new, looked as though it had been in a front end collision. But enjoyed every bit before getting rained on.

    Loaded my Kombi to a car carrier trailer and took it to my mechanic. Becoming a regular trip lately...

    Today we totally fitted Cookie out with everything that we need for cruising. Every cupboard and nook and cranny has something placed in there. We are ready to roll.

    fitted some new interior cards I made up and pulled the Rock'n'roll bed out to rebuild it and picked up some 15mm ply for the new base and back rest...

    And drove to work and back ;)

    I am suffering from separation anxiety :( Trying to console myself by looking at what you guys are doing and making a list of parts required to get her back on the road.

    Was going to wash yesterday and go to Dubs @ the Abbey today but event cancelled so bottled 5 doz long neck home brew instead :lol: :p :D

    Very constructive Bert. Homebrew is the only beer I drink just don't like the taste of the 'other stuff'. When we lived on Groote Eylandt a friend used home brew ginger beer - I can't remember now if it was alcoholic or not but whatever I remember it was yummy as. - Liss

    Fitted electronic dizzy. Wrong colours on the leads from the battery. Ran beautiful.
    Played with wiring fixing problems and somehow stuffed ths dizzy.
    Fittex old old dizzy and it rancrap.
    Fitted point from new dizzy back in instead of electronic points. Runs good again now.
    New skills learn but no progress made.
