Job well done

Submitted by Carl Hinton

Our brakevan renovations are completed. It took just under a year, but we have finally completed the job!! We are a very small team of renovators, so a huge THANKYOU to everyone involved in making this possible.

The inevitable before and after shots are shown here.You would never believe that this was the same vehicle.

Running boards

Submitted by Carl Hinton

The next step in our renovation is to replace the full length running boards. We want to do this before the roof repairs as it will give us something to stand on whilst replacing the roof. HubsThese were removed when the boggies were replaced some years ago; as the replacement wheels were somewhat wider than the old ones.

Refurbishment always has to start somewhere, and the exposed verandah floors seemed like a really good place to start.
