You can easily keep 80 to 85 up, as long as it not windy.

Depends how much you care about fuel economy.

Don't bring back another shitter!!!

Get a but of getting used too again. No fast corners.
Temp gauge sits at half, brakes work. No weird noises. Rear sun roof leaks.
Still got 200 miles to get home

for the photo tart....

The interior is a before pic... i have serviced the sun roof/seals & inside has dried out today. its due to rain next few days so i want to check if its still leaking. if so.. will run some clear barthroom seal around the sunroof outside plate thingy.. as i do not want to seal the sunroof shut!. no need for it!
if it stays dry i have heard a local cat detailing place maybe able to steam clean all that gunge away.

Tow bar/dual ball/pin on its way + a new ipod head unit.
Friday i'll be getting the immobiliser REMOVED! its like the bike ones.. has a fob that you have to press to a connecting plate & got xxx? seconds to start the van! i loose the fob.. im screwed! Insurance co wernt informed it was there coz not standard & i didnt know it was there till i picked it up.
& i hate immobilisers!
next month or so will get side/rear windows tinted mirror blue.

not putting the ones for sale on. saw what they did to the yellow van!
the hub caps are peeling on this one.. will see how easy it is to clean the silver off & maybe repaint them..

its quite dusty in there at the mo.. will give it a wash/wipe when it rains.. lol.. free water..!

Got to say that van looks like a pretty nice example.

Yeah so the sunroofs leaking a bit, that's no big issue.

Body work and interior look lovely.

nope.. it didnt.. temp sits at half & i can hear the fan on.....
got heat out vents, no gurgling or "hear" water movement like the 1ltr i had.
& most important... the coolant level didnt drop/raise past normal.

it does however need the fan belt looking at/replacing. get a tiny screech when i start the engine.

Ahh just nip it up on the tensioner. Not stupidly tight as it'll nail the bearings.
