Re: 57 Project

Hi. Where did you get the rear facing twin with hinges or did you fabricate this yourself? It was fabricated in me garage mate, if you look back through the thread you can see it being made, I have found it to be great. The hinges are raised up close to the top of the padding so it clears the windo...

Re: 57 Project

I also fitted a rug I made a few months ago. It was a crucial trading offcut with a 50s pattern. Dont look at the name on the fridge,...

I have a punch and Judy [RHD] for me bay, I have thought of trying it on me LHD split, I have one of the new waterproof zip in groundsheet coleman shelters and the split fits in a treat.
