Alloy Wheels for Sale (SOLD)

28 Mar
Wheel number one.
Wheel number two
Wheel number three
Wheel number four

These are my previous set which have done circa 72,000 miles.

The photos show used FOX RACING 205 x 17 wheels in Gloss Silver , just before they were removed , tyres removed and replaced with brand new rims, exactly the same.

They are all somewhat scuffed and you should be able to zoom in for a good look. Unless you get very close to the vehicle they ar still respectable and give , I think, a classy fresh look to the camper van. THEY ARE XL RATED AND ARE SUITABLE FOR LGV USE , NV200 COMPATIBLE. (SOLD)

They run true and are can be yours for a reasonable offer. They must be sold, please get in touch via comments and I will e-mail you. I may be able to deliver them to you, boxed, if you pay via Paypal in advance.

MORE INFORMATION

SORRY NOW SOLD

One wheel was cracked but has been repaired professionally and is again durable.

After welding by Aeronautical standard welder.

The plastic Nissan centres come with them and the nuts, locknuts and socket.

Three of these Nissan PLASTIC centres have a small crack near the fixing hole. These do NOT affect the function and are durable.The fixing screws come with them.

Security locknuts, socket and wheelnuts to suit. Used but durable.

THERE YOU HAVE IT, WARTS AND ALL. A NICE LOOKING SET OF WHEELS WHICH ALTHOUGH NOT IMMACULATE BY ANY MEANS COULD RAISE THE LOOK OF YOUR NV200 FOR VERY SENSIBLE MONEY. GRAB YOURSELF A BARGAIN. HAVE A REALLY GOOD LOOK AT THE PICTURES. I WOULD NOT HESITATE USING THESE RIMS AGAIN MYSELF. MY NEW ONES HAVE BEEN FITTED IN CASE OUR PLAN TO SWAP THE CAMPER VAN COMES TO FRUITION TO MAX THE RESALE VALUE OF AN EXPENSIVE CONVERSION.

YOU WILL ONLY NEED TO HAVE TYRES OF YOUR CHOICE FITTED.

A fresh start for the Blog

26 Mar

Camper vanning should be all about fun.

The Blog has been neglected for quite some time now. I went off to admin a good friend’s Group on Facebook and that, along with Political activity, took up much of my spare time.

The Group grew rapidly and at first it was all about our beloved NV200 vans and camper vans. There was a growing number of contributors though who wanted to and insisted on using car tyres against the recommended 6 ply tyres. They also advocated fitting dangerous Bull Bars which can easily kill a pedestrian. Coloured running lights on the front? No problemo……… dude.

I wanted no part of that. I had very immature young men insulting me if they disagreed with technical input.

End of rant. This is now my ongoing “Platform” Please contribute your “fun” items about, travel, conversions and interesting asides. Thank you ! DINKUM

Late Winter Lunching

8 Feb
The Griffin Inn, Oswestry.

Drove out to Oswestry to visit Cambrian Antiques. Got directed to The Griffin Inn by a competitor Pub ! What a Gem ! A cold day and on cold days , boy can I munch. I ordered what I thought was a chicken burger. It was a ” Griffin” burger. A 6oz beef burger, cheese, bacon and TWO beer battered chicken fillets with chips and onion rings. Words cannt describe this “fat bloke’s” delight ! My wife’s pasta dish was just as good !

Traditional olde English/Welsh Pub with delightful Irish lady behind the bar !

We went on to visit Cambrian Antiques, then Acorn Antiques and Bryn Y Grog Hall at Wrexham. The Kampa ? Oh yes, running beautifully at 72,000 miles and going for a service next week. It’s also a little Gem. Big plans again this year ! see you soon?

Electric powered Camper Van

7 Dec

Regular contributor Martin, sent a link to this Nissan e-NV200 camper van. Thanks Martin. These examples look rather different with their “wrapped” lower colour treatment. I like these. Caledonian Campers also have an all electric version


The Caledonian version.

If you enjoy shorter touring , day by day between sites and EHU points one of these could provide an economical and quiet solution. I just cannot call these vehicles Zero-Emission if you charge from the grid. I would love to hear first hand experiences of electric camper vans in use. What are your experiences?

Remembrance

11 Nov

The view of the Cenotaph from our previous home.

I think it was in the 1980s on Armistice Day, I was early morning painting some upstairs windows. I was standing on the roof of the old sun-lounge facing the Cenotaph which was on the opposite side of our house. Time overtook me and I missed getting smartened up to visit the Remembrance ceremony across the main road. Suddenly a Spitfire shreaked over our rooftop, almost dislodging me from my workplace. It had buzzed the Remembrance Day ceremony and I had been caught out. Disrespectful. I never missed it again. You can “feel” a Merlin engine when it gets within kill zone.
