Love the "just get it done" attitude!

Is it going to end up that darker shade all over? That's quite something!  yrck

The new colour is going to be the base coat before she does a "Vinny's Berlin Brigade" style paint job on top of it, but with more "girly" colours though  whstle
Can I combine 24 volts, 9.00's and an Tdi!!!!

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

Got a very big step closer to getting Batty Wagon back on the road this weekend, mainly thanks to Fentiger working his wiring magic again today  wdesmle
Firstly he had to check and make notes on fitting the timed glow plug relay  Banana



In place and just the lights, horn, washers and fan to reconnect now



And a while later he even managed to start it and have the engine running too  whoo

Yesterday we set about getting the roof lined with underlay and carpet



Followed by refitting the bed in the back again
 


Front floor going back together
 


And also with Fentigers help we got the roof rack in place and bolted down at last (after all the back and forth with Craddocks)



Drivers wing back on, and wheel back on the bonnet too  wdesmle

Tubes the clamps pass through were too close to the legs so you couldn't get the nuts started, then said they'd send a new unit, which then just turned into a couple of parts upon arrival etc

Had an idea al little while ago to try and make a "veranda" on the back with an ramp, to aid getting in and letting the dogs in and out during the night etc so using the old tailgate I'v so far got the basics sorted so it can close up in front of the door and lower down level to clear the door too.





Meanwhile Sara was working on the final paint scheme  Bnana







And she can now finally show off her pink flaps too!  ssies

So, What colour will be stated on the V5?

Great work Sara. Painting the Sanky trailer the same would make it an an impressive rig.
Another thought....... Painting a 101 those colours would be cool too.

'Mother! My eyes!'    might be more accurate.
