3rd February, I expect to get Winston home tomorrow night. Dee wants to "christen" him by going straight to the beach with the pugs. Pics to follow. I also had to make a new plan with the secondary wall inside the driveway, which had to be demolished to make space for the Bus to get in, and Dee's Sirion.. So I knocked the wall down today.
Off the top of my head, the list of items to be done, in no particular order.
Fit gear linkage service kit and sort out the sloppy gear selector
Space Bowden Tube correctly to get rid of subtle shudder
Get hooter working. Problem with hooter circuit on steering column
Adjust rear brakes\Hand brake
Remove cupboards and interior
Get respray Red and White
Start interior rebuild - Red, White and Blue
Purchase Coleman extreme cooler while building cupboards
Car entertainment and Immobilizer\Alarm install
Dual deep-cycle battery install
Purchase side tent - possibly from UK
I'm sure there will be many more items, but fundamentally, that should be it. Mechanically, I'm going to tune the motor as best I can, and get it to run as good as it can, and roll along from there.
Vision wise, I want him to look like this.. Def Red wheels and white walls.. But with the Devon top, and the Union Jack on the Spare wheel cover, and a British interior. He'll look like a "brick shaped Porsche"..
