Apparently you were shown in and out via "the cave" so didn't see the bikes :(

:bounce: Morning all :bounce:

Photobucket seem to be blackmailing me so all my photos don't show :evil:

The new way forward is to upload directly so I'll gradually work my way back....although it will take years!

In the meantime, here's a few Puck progress shots

:bounce: Evening all :bounce:

I haven't been on here a lot lately but I'm still alive! The Photobucket saga didn't help much but I thought I'd post a couple of photos to get you all up to speed with what happened with the Puck.....

I'm using a new photo hosting site now called Tinypic so hopefully they won't go the way of PB :roll:

*** EDIT *** It appears Tinypic is owned by Photobucket and they're closing it ! *** EDIT ***

We were due to go on holiday to France with the Puck on Sunday August 6th. and at 4pm on Saturday August 5th. Pucky McPuckface finally stuck his nose out of the cave door for the first time in over a year. Talk about going down to the wire :D I then found I had a puncture so had to scream off to town in a hurry 8O

Image

The next morning we coupled the Puck up to the DMax and successfully towed it all the way to the South of France covering about 2500 miles in all. With the low down weight of the new floor it towed a treat at 70mph and not many caravans overtook us :wink:

Image

We had a great time with the Puck. Much better than camping and we can make and break camp in about 25 minutes, which makes life sooooooo much easier :cheers:

Image

Rusty still isn't run in yet but we've done a few miles and we took him to a local show where he won an award :cheers:

When we got back from France I was able to fix Rusty's brakes which I had never been happy with. Fitting the servo non return valve the correct way round makes all the difference :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Here's a couple of photos of our "rig"

Image

Image

and a little teaser of the inside....I haven't took any of the other end, but one day I will........

Image

I hope you're all keeping well?

Roll on VF next year.

Steve

ps....My current project

Evening all

Ninove' s all done and dusted and I've got to say thanks to Mike Cooper for letting me ride shotgun and for a great weekend.

It was while we were travelling back in pouring rain that I realised I needed to give Rusty some love, particularly in the wiper department.

I've got disengaged and they were simply too long and holding the blade away from the screen.

They got modified 😁

Now...Simon from Red 9 kindly sent Mike and I a hydraulic handbrake mod so as we had a power cut this morning I decided to at least mount the bracket.

What it is is a slave master cylinder that is plumbed in with the rear brake circuit.......
