Pre-MOT Work – Part 5

Today was fairly limited in what we could do, owing to forgetting to bring the U-bolt to tighten up the exhaust manifold to downpipe connection.  However, I did manage to finally fit the new driver’s seat! And here it is… Continue Reading →

Exhausting Work

Owing to the apprentice being on holiday, there’s no campervan update this fortnight.  I did, however, take the opportunity to effect a repair on the Peugeot 107 – a rear exhaust box replacement – exhausting work. Replacement parts were fairly… Continue Reading →

Pre-MOT Work – Part 4

So the plan for today was to drill the holes in the new brackets and get the nice Fiesta seat in place where the old driver’s seat was.  Doesn’t it look good? However, it didn’t go too well.  Forgot to both… Continue Reading →
