    If you can weld, or can afford to pay someone to weld, then yeah, do it.

    Any Cruise or Drives planned??

    Get a stick to hold out the window and jam in the wheels to slow you down. It'll be fine!

    1970 westy roof canvas - which brand?

    Mines a Wolfsburg West canvas, though it came from CIP1. I thought most of them were WW canvases? Mines been great, the bright orange has faded despite me treating it when new, but its in good condition and remains weather tight. Reccomended.

    Camper Jam

    Well organised event. Nice place. Lots to do - food and entertainment is very good. Fair to say they don’t give a monkeys about old buses these days though.

    For us West Country folk, its now 40 miles closer :D but, I would say its a much much better event that the last days of Slough.

    Floor standing engine stand

    I use a cheap machine mart one. You have to adapt it a bit and just use three mount points but it’s great after that. Mines had 20 years of use on and off.

    Windscreen wiper spindle replacement

    I had a spindle snap on mine. I changed it with the dash still in place, it was a few years back but I don't think it was a massive drama.

    Crossing The Channel

    Seems about right then. It’s bearable for a longer trip but makes weekend expensive…. plus Easter has been hit by massive queues the last couple of years. Darn.

    Crossing The Channel

    Its been a few years since I did Dover - Calais/Dunkirk, I last went in 2019 - it cost about £60 return on the ferry or £100 on the Eurotunnel. I've just been looking for next year, admittedly its Easter weekend, but I don't seem to be able to get much change out of £300 .... is that about...

    Starter motor stuck on

    Over time Ive managed to get the knack of lightly getting the nut onto the d-bolt enough to be able to pull it into place whilst tightening it up ... use a flexi head ratchet spanner to fully tighten. In the Airmighty magazine a while back, MarCo's tech tips suggested using superglue to hold...
