Re: The weather...

Not been on for a while - lack of opportunities to use the bus and aside from an oil and filter change, it doesn't need much doing.

I did however notice that it's been raining for ages.

Give us a break Mr Weather !

Re: Lower arm & anti roll bar fitment

Re: Heating

I’m running an Ebersoacher B1L (B for benzine, or petrol as we call it)

Re: The weather...

10 days of sunshine forecast - about time !

Might get the bus out and camp on the drive as a lockdown treat for young Sam. Hopefully camp sites will be opening in May/June if things pick up and people stick to the rules.
