Well today it got used for transporting party food,balloons and stereo to a local church hall for my sons 6th birthday party where we did traditional games,pass the parcel,musical chairs etc.But earlier this week, I took the side steps off which were rotting and only left two snapped off bolts in the chassis.I then nearly fell out the first time I got out as my foot felt automatically for the step! I think it looks better without them and its saving a bit of weight.I stuffed it full of thick branches, twice this week,to be sawn up for the woodstove at my forge.My older son said "what have you had in here dad?"its got of bits of bark everywhere in it.I also made a card mock up of the lockers I am thinking of making.Puzzled over the electrics in the new back door and thought of doing lots of other stuff but it'll have to wait.

well i spent most of the day replacing all brake pipes and feul lines as failed mot on two of the brake pipes at rear so thought well s@@ it will do all new pipes and then why not do fuel pipes too ???

once done never to be done again is his motto
