My tank is very rusty. It needs to be dropped off of the van, given a damned good wire brushing and a coat of or three of Hammerite.

Not easy to do now as it has about 50L of gas in it, but how easy a job is it when empty?

Anyone ever done it? Any advice? Suggestions?

Good luck.

A tyre tread unwrapped and smashed the shower outlet on my Laika Ecovips 7r. I bought UK 32mm fittings for the simple job but it needs 30mm bits. Where can I get them? I tried one dealer with no success.

I cracked one side of my Hymer’s massive rear bumper. Someone else did a demolition job on the other side. Bad Waldsee wanted almost £1,000 and it would involve a ferry ride and a 1500 miles round trip. I wouldn’t even think of asking the Robber Barons for a price. I was thinking of a fibreglass repair kit and a lot of elbow grease when I happened upon this little backstreet outfit in Bristol -

Took the van in yesterday AM, just picked it up with a far better than new, beautiful shiny bumper. £250! I am over the moon.

Highly recommended! They also do body repairs and respraying to an equally high standard from the work I saw there.

I can see your problem as haven’t been able to find simple solution on Google. I think I would go to a plumbing merchant and see what they have got rather than a dealer as they will have a large variety of fittings for various purposes one of which might work.

That’s a point. No, 16Mbps, tops, but Vodafone still offer 38Mbps fibre even though that speed is not available where I am. OTOH, would  it be faster than my current, promised, top speed of 17Mbps from PO Broadband? Especially in the early evening when it can take up to 15 or even 30 secs to load a webpage. OTOH2, over the 18 months contract, I will only pay £19 a month overall.

If I am still here then, the Bristol systems may have been boosted to higher speeds.

Or Relish could have arrived. https://www1.relish.net/athome

Vodafone is offering fibre broadband without line charges.

38Mbps £25 per month. 76Mbps, where available, £28 per month. +£49 connection.

There is a £3 pm reduction for existing customers.


And I’m stuck with my slow BB for another 16 months. DOH!

Thanks for your comments. Like all sales of s/h items, the problem is
finding the person that wants what you have. When we moved home last
October, I thew away years of collected items many worth having. But
the finding of that buyer, was impossible.

I quite fancy it myself but seem to remember it's over 3,500kg and I'm not allowed to upsize ......again ;-)
Not over 3,500kg. It was designed to be so, not wishing to have the
problems many have with DVLA over 70. I also had full Cat C and D
licences at the time.

I was quite surprised at it's weigh after the body was added. It was
weighed three times and the averages taken. Payload was 679kg, so
also under 3,050kg UL weight for speed limits.

Carol,

Congratulations on selling yours. 

Might be worth double checking the current rules around importing - a friend importing his 3rd van from Germany in 20 years hit snags this time and it took about 3 months to register it. I can't remember the exact reasons - all related to paperwork on a new van.

Agreed. It's also a Defender 130, which has only just gone out of
manufacture, so values of s/h are increasing. Also a Td5 engine.

Agreed, but I need to have a starting value point.
