Re: Max Last, the Swedish `63

It happened. Well, it started happening! Oven cleaner and a couple of sponges with the scourer on the back, scourer first, then the sponge side, then a cloth clean off any left over stuff. Lots of stopping and wandering off involved, but pleased with the result so far. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.c...

Re: Max Last, the Swedish `63

While this down time is on, the bus has been waxed, cleaned out inside, and the oil pressure and temperature gauges relocated. They were on the dashboard shelf, taking up space, so a more stealth approach was needed. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200408/312744ead7bd7b19d17dbb50a8edba2e.jpg Wher...

Re: Bored isolation

In light of how this year is going, i suggest any plans/dreams/mad ideas should be made to happen, if we had waited, we wouldn’t now be doing it.

Re: Bored isolation

Not to a show, just a trip down memory lane, I decided a trip in the bus to Sweden was in order last summer. We lived there when my Dad worked there in the early 70’s, so he came along too, we drove up from Dunkirk, purposely avoiding the ferry from Germany as i wanted to drive over the big bridges ...

Re: AGM and Annual Rally - New dates 14-16 August

No Jim, i meant would Vic Farm be open as a campsite on the original agm weekend in May.
On the off chance we are allowed out of our houses.
I know several people who would jump at the chance to just have a campout that weekend.

Re: AGM and Annual Rally - New dates 14-16 August

Thats a blow, but not unexpected.
Would Vic Farm be open as a campsite, that weekend? (Assuming we are allowed to move around by then)??
