All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

We visited Chantelle at the weekend and enjoyed clearing stuff out of the back as well as trying to work out exactly what the old girl has been in her life so far.

She appears to have 1 ton bits at the back and military style dumb irons at the front with a civvi rear x member.

Suffix B, Diesel, probably started life as a truck cab. Seems to have been marine blue, though some bits are bronze green.

Wipers are off, though I found one unit in a box in the back.

Only the driver's seat is present.

Bulkhead is a bit careworn. The Salisbury axle is one I fitted for the PO about nine years ago, the original rover one had expired.

I would like to re fit a rover one in time, when I have a chance to rebuild one.

The engine runs quite nicely.

The hard top is solid and appears to be watertight, though the household gloss is doing the usual thing of falling off inside.

Sproggle enjoyed revving the engine.

Thanks to my chums who are helping to make this adventure possible.

Looks like you're going to have to pull your finger out Matt. It won't be long before sproggle gets her driving licence.

A friend my dads was trying to do a similar thing with his 109 a few years back using a bedford dormobile donor. He never got it finished but did have the roof mounted and a cooker and sink installed. Will try and find the pictures i have of it.
