Re: ***Symonds Yat Adventure Campout 5***

I believe that the Canoeing Centre were considering closing the camping field due to it being too much aggro to deal with customers who did not respect the campsite rules and were generally selfish and ignorant (not the SSVC of course!) - and lets face it they need a bigger carpark! They told us las...

Re: Paint Prep - Advice

You could use a good high build primer - but it will take a good few coats and a bit of rubbing - a smear of soft body filler would probably be quicker in the long run and you dont' get the danger of it sinking over time either due to the thickness of the spray primer filler.

Re: 1966 SYRIAN bus restoration in Cyprus

Nice Pics - you'd have thought a Syrian bus wouldn't rust really with a largely Mediterranean climate - sand blasting certainly showed otherwise!

Re: 1967 panel becomes 11 window camper with Dormobile roof

EeVeeWee I fitted those KONI's to my bus last week after lots of careful research - 80-1349's and 80-1350's ?? A major improvement - made the ride much nicer and a lot more controlled.

I have a question, how come is the bleeder at the bottom and the feed at the top? Gravity will drop the fluid in the slave cylinder to the bott...
