Some more Pics with Alloys fitted

8 Oct


Thanks for further comments below from Gary and David !

Managed to snatch enough time out this afternoon to re-fit the alloys for some more pictures.
We had an all time record day of views on this Blog yesterday from all over the world !


The actual black graphic matches well with the mock up I CGI’d on an earlier post. With the plastic bumpers etc “blacked up” with Astonish’s best, I think that we have achieved the simple white/black look?????

The “boot” behind the seat/bed is spacious enough for fold up seats, folding Bar B Q and much more. Will probably use plastic boxes for clothes which can sit on the rear facing foam cushion and then store above the cab roof when the roof is up and bed made.

The leisure battery is secured under the bed. The Propex gas blown air heater is hidden to the offside in it’s own secure “box”. Heat outlets direct to the front of the bed/seat. I don’t think that we will ever feel the cold in this camper ! The battery charges from the 240v EHU and from the alternator on it’s own separate, protected circuit. the main fuse is mounted on top of the engine battery, easy to access.

There is a small table which stows behind the driver’s cab seat on the front of the “sink unit”. It sits on a sturdy, standard chromed taper leg on a Flash Gordon tripod foot. We may try a larger table which could perhaps stow in the boot, but will see how we go on.

The view on the rear view mirror is marred by the height of the backrest on the seat/bed. It would be very easy to fit a rear view camera for use whilst driving. But we are investigating a cunning plan which could improve the rear view out of the rear glass door windows AND importantly, allow the use of the Porta Potti which is stowed under the front of the bed. More on this later.

All comments welcomed !

The rear wheel arches (along with most internal surfaces) are insulated with lovely , high quality “felt”. No wonder that road noise is way down on the standard van levels.

    Wonderful ! Your patience has been rewarded. I wish you the very best and plenty of nice moments aboard. Should you drive through Belgium, you are sincerely welcome to make a hop. Towing is still allowed and with the Predom at the back it could be a perfect couple for even longer haul…

    Being a scotsman, numbers worry me but it is clear to me, at least, thatyou own something that is greater than the sum of its parts,at every level. as jessie j says its not all about the money, but i think it helps.

    Like the alloys, really brightens up the whole look! Get out there and enjoy it, and send us a postcard.

    Looks nice and fairly practical as a slightly large 4-person car with some luggage or as a 2-seater that can occasionally carry bulky items on the bed at a pinch.

    Would you mind if I asked you some questions about sizes/litres etc.?

    Hi, please ask any questions you have. Probably best to use the comments facility on the latest posts. In that way they will be seen by all the regular readers when they log in.
