Been to see Paul W & dropped V-bus off there for him to look at replacing our doors & some remedial work on the gear box as it's very stiff changing gear since we came back from the Europe trip.

Sent loads of Pm's out too to everyone - did you all get them?

Justin has awoken from his winter hibernation so hoping to go up there in February and finally get some more done on the van. Been really unhappy with the progress but hey ho. Managed to get myself a second hand clarke 135te welder so we will be over stocked with them at workshop Laughing. Bought a cheap heater from the range too to keep the chill off.

The beetle is back in the road for another year!! Me and pat (dads mate) managed to do two of the welding bits but the third was just a right pain so of to Paul Wisk it went!
He put it through a MOT and it also failed on a bit on the sill that he also welded! So hes done two bits of welding undersealed the parts we welded, lowered the rear a spline, changed some ball joint rubbers and also got it MOT'd all in a day! Now that's productive!

Well worth it!!

Well done about MOT Steve, no worries now,
Daz, looks like the Panel might be progressing, better weather coming soon, not so daunting heading down the workshop, dont know about you but i hate going in the garage when its cold and blowing.
Hope to get out and about alot this year, away for weekends, even if its local.
