Re: Rough as

Ha ha ...... a very honest description by the seller for a change! Possibly a candidate for swapping the Dormy bits on to a good Station Wagon, otherwise it's a new chassis, new bulkhead etc. and a LOT of work! I can't see a wardrobe, though the kitchen unit is there, and no pictures of the interior...

Re: Leafers

Hi Bob,

No need to book in if you're not camping - just turn up at the gate :tiphat:

Which day will you be there?

Cheers,
Robin.

Re: 5 door Carawagon project

The same trader has now put it back on ebay at the revised price of £7995 HERE

Perhaps he feels a month or so is long enough for folk to have forgotten it was on there at £4800 :whistle:

Re: Doncaster Classic Car Show, 30th Jun 2019

Agreed, on all counts :cheers: That'll teach them for scaring little Maisie, revving up while on the stand opposite us, then doing a burnout down the public road after exiting the showground, and crashing into someone's garden wall :thud: Luckily no-one hurt, but could have been as a lot of the publ...

Re: Broken chassis rail at the front offside dumbiron

AAAAGGGGGHHHHHHH :thud: It's a wonder it's lasted as long as it has - presumably it was a 'quick fix' and slap underseal on just so the previous owner could sell it :rant: I hope you don't find any more filler on the chassis! Are you old enough to remember the magnet trick? Prior to manufacturers di...

Re: Broken chassis rail at the front offside dumbiron

The only way to know is to cut back until you find good thick steel to weld to.

It's no good plating if the rest of the dumbiron is rotten!

Re: Kelmarsh & Peterborough shows

:cactus: So, that's a big "No" then :shrug: I've had a few replies, all in the negative, with just one person possibly interested in Kelmarsh. It looks like the days of Series motors at these big organised shows might be over. I'll cancel the Kelmarsh stand in a couple of days (just in case there's ...

Re: Broken chassis rail at the front offside dumbiron

Oh dear!!

Have you had a good look at the rest of the chassis - tapping it with a hammer?

Dumbiron replacement is fairly straightforward, though I see you've also got the P38 power steering which will make it a little more involved.

Hope you don't find anything more serious.

Robin.

Re: First camping in carolcarawagon!!

That sounds strange Phil :shrug: If the engine is fine at all other times, acceleration ok, no juddering or kangarooing, then I can't see it being fuel or lift pump, though I suppose if you were low on fuel there's a chance it could be the pick-up tube in the tank? We had a problem on Patrick's SWB ...

Re: First camping in carolcarawagon!!

That is fantastic Phil :cheers: Great to see you've finished it, and are using it. It looks really good, especially with the proper awning. You just need a firepit now, to complete the ensemble :wink: We do find we get mixed reactions on 'proper' camp sites, with some folk looking down their noses a...
