Do away with them connections & solder them to avoid similar in the future,
Get a bit of heavy heat shrink to give a nice finish 👍🏻

Cool! love your van.


I had them for a year and finally got around to fitting them.

Thanks - 2 little people who are fans of the van there too. In fact, they're rapidly becoming not-so-little so the next big job will be some interior rearranging to give them new sleeping areas. Currently set up as a 3 berth but hoping to make it into 5 :D

Those two we lads are loving every minute of it and rightly so, make every minute of it count as it goes by so quickly.

And yes those wheel trims really make a big difference.

I was tempted to say rectangular ones, but I got Bosch L5013’s the same as the Varta LFD90’s worked out at £105 each from Eurocarparts, Tanya Batteries were similar price for the Varta but didn’t know how long it would take them to get here as the last one I got from the, took over a week (Hermes fault)

Ah, I miss that Trooper! I'd buy it back tomorrow if I could. Still yearn for a 4x4 camper, though there's more than 2 of us now so we might need a bigger boat :D https://www.expedition-trucks….ion-camper

Got Matilda ready for her Medical on Thursday morning, couple of shiny new rear lenses, a bulb, and a new wiper. swapped out the gas bottles and checked the EHU leads getting her ready for France in 3 weeks. gave her a spin down to Arklow to make sure I could drive it, then got Susie to drive back to Wicklow.

Gave her a big hug cause she passed
I'm sure the people passing taught I'd lost it.
Taking her out to dinner in greystones tomorrow , I know we only live 2km away, but drink driving and its cheaper then taxis.
