Nath and Bob say Hey

Post by BobsCareWorker on Wed Nov 23, 2016 12:14 am

So one massive HELLO and thank you from a northern lad "lost" in the south.

Ok so I'm Nath,
his names Bob.......we're old mates, so we hate and love eachother.

Yep, I've struggled with fitting wheels, yes, the bleeding of the braking system almost rendered me to a quivering wreck, correct, the cooling system COMPLETELY makes no sense!! Agreed, I too cannot get hot air into the cab, no, I have no idea why aftermarket exhausts are a nightmare to fit and well basically just don't, yes, I did try to repair the headlights with a hairdryer and a can of what I can only describe as extremely drippy grey paint that peacocks as "chrome", yes, I too tried to sound-proof it......NO!! of course it didn't work!! I also spent 6 hours trying to find a "workshop manual"......did I find it???....yes, it's a shame its digital or it would have come in handy when camping......and I'd run out of bog roll!!

What I'm getting at is that even though I have only just signed up on here.....I feel like I've been here from the start, thanks guys.....and lady's (elfin girl)

HighlyJetted.......I salute you!!

Welcome, tidy looking camper you have there. How far South have you drifted? You'll never get hot air from the face-level vents, as we need to keep on high alert when piloting these vans.

Nice looking van but watch out with that number plate. Its not a large radiator and that number plate covers quite a proportion. I changed mine to a square one located to the passenger side. Blocking the radiator isnt going to help cooling issues.
Oh yes, welcome to the mad house! More pics of inside please.

Thanks everyone! PFM good point! Now I get it!!!
I'm a Lancashire lad born and bred GEORDIE, we moved to Nailsea 4months ago.
Thanks Raggy, not sure if it shows up well on the picture but it's a custom vented grill, I didn't want to put the plate where it is (for said reason) but MOT forced a rash reaction. I've got a bulbar to fit which will suspend the number plate further down and away from the vents. I've started insulating the back but works been crazy so it's come to a holt. Fantastic job you've done to yours by the way!!! Very inspirational

A friend of mine from Ventnor retired to Nailsea in the late 90's and in 1994 I spent a month working at Severn Beach in the shadows of the construction of the Second Severn Crossing.

I think that they were called Enzo. They were on a P registered Diesel Hi-Jet van that I didn't pay a lot for. Raggy's when he visited me on holiday this year took them back with him and had them lovingly re-furbished and they now adorn "Skylark".


I replaced them with a brand new set of SE Alloys with new 185/60/13 tyres. The 5/10 spoke on my Romahome once again brand new with the same size Tyres. I had 4 sets in total from a Daihatsu Dealer in Dover.
