well spent a few hours picking faults with the new toy sunday and to be honest its mainly bodged up silly alterations that i want to sort! coz they look shit!
 
 
exhaust doesnt sound too loud or chavvy considering its only got the bike can on it! but its too low and looks crap so i'll be making something more easy on the eye!!
 
 
the interior is prob the worst area of the lotLOL its dirty! excellently bodged!! and just downright poor workmanship!Shocked 
 
this next picture is the best....
 
 
something juuuuust not right here??LOL bloke says "i've spent ages pissing about with the linkages and cables but just cant get the kick-down to work!!!" might be a good start if  YOU PUT THE FUCKING ACCELLERATOR PEDAL IN THE RIGHT PLACE!!!!!LOL
 
 
side locker area needs painting inside as the new load bed floor has been fitted (quite well ) but weld penetration hasnt been cleaned off or protected from the elements!Ouch full of condensation too sunday butit was pretty cold tho!
 
if it all goes tits up im guna make another trailer out of it! thats what happened to the single cab!!LOL
 
more to come as i start taking stuff off and fixing the bodges!!

havent done much this weekend as ive had to replace the engine in the jetta so i can move it out of the way!! always easier when stuff moves under its own steam!LOL and today ive fitted the wood burner in the unit ive made at work! well you really need to test these things out properly to make ure they function appropriatly! (sp?) Wink
so managed to gut the crewie interior and found that someone tried to fit the accellerator pedal where the clutch should be!!!!!!!!!Shocked holes to be welded there! and im missing a few bits! namley the shift inhibitor switch! thats right you can start mine in park or drive!!! nice!
made some centre caps for the alloys which make it appear so much different!
off to the wanted section now to try get some bits for xmas holy-day

those wipers... check there's no slack in them, they look like the two come quite close to me - like on the coaches at work; you may want to doucle check/adjust that incase they 'snatch' each other when going along, and hey presto no wipers at 70 on the motorway!
