It's been quite some time since I updated this hasn't it :smt017
Bus is still going strong and now covered over 10000 trouble free camping miles and is still used throughout the year in all weathers :smt012

Decided it was time to fit the rear bumper and I managed to pick up a rusty rot ridden rear bumper for the bargain price of £5 so set about restoring it. If it's not rusty I don't want it :smt016

First job was to get it blasted....

Chop out the rot
Image

Weld in new metal
Image

Image

Image

Image

All welded up and coated with antirust treatment
Image

Had to make a new bumper bracket as I only had one origonal one :smt005 Fudge was quite impressed :smt012

The one on the right is the home made one :smt002
Image

Nice coat of paint and jobs a good un, Not bad for a days work and saved me a couple of hundred quid in buying a new one :smt012

Night time picture taken at one of our local winter camping trips in Durham

Fitted some period Lucas spotlights
Image

Also got a new rather large Khyam awning as well :smt004
Image

I'm sure I'll have some more updates in the not to distant future :smt012

Cheers :smt003
Yes Money Penny, new Khyam wasn't cheap at over £300 but as you know yourself, the extra space it gives and the speed to put up and take down makes it well worth the money and that's why we bought it really :smt012
