    I honestly thought you were using rhyming slang first and you supplied supermarkets with a facility to get to an upper floor!!! 😂 I’m Head of Facilities at the UKs most famous holiday resorts. Just about to change jobs though and become Head of Property at a fairly famous Stately Home and...

    Wiring... any ideas?

    Sadly the van is 40 miles away from me. I head over to it every Saturday to get some stuff done. What sort of photo helps? Fully wired? I'll try and get over there again later - what would you be looking for?

    Wiring... any ideas?

    So, for the last few weeks I've been on a truly emotional journey trying to sort the dash wiring in the bus - the story is long and winding, but I'm nearly there with one really f*****g frustrating issue that I just cannot figure out. I have not been able to get a generator and oil pressure...

    My 69 Cali Weekender

    So finally got fuses in and most of the wiring dialed up. Started the van on the key and as soon as it's released from position 3, van cut out... So, recheck the wiring, earth's etc etc etc... Got spark, got fuel blah blah. Eventually sipped the ignition and it appears the switch is shot - 48...
