Hello From Derby

Post by jap1122334 on Fri Nov 20, 2015 9:33 am

Hi all .....

Goodness me we purchaced our Tallisman in a really bad way, clouds of smoke coming from the engine but we only lived 10 mins drive away from where we picked him up from, needless to say he did not make it back. smile!  So he then spent the next 15 days having a complete engine rebild. We have named him Luka because of the 1987 Suzanne Vega song about an illtreated little boy. So he has leaky windows, broken catches,two dead mice,no locks on the toilet or gas compartments and lots of other things but he is home now with a couple that are going to look after him.

Hmmm lets see...... Engine re build all gone well he is now running like a dream but for double the original cost we were hoping for but still well within original budget. Cooker is now out ready for the new one to go in, new wing mirrors ( on a black friday deal from Germany £40 for both ) Fabric picked and cushions are in the upholsterers, all internal dashboard lights replaced because everyone of them was blown, rear door door lock was a nightmare because we had no keys but a local locksmith cut us two keys to fit after we got the barrel out. Carver water heater is out and being re furbished and crack in the window screen has been sorted. Some pics if anyone interested.


Damp around windows is the next part and also the electrics are having an overhaul.
