Re: Euro tunnel

I always book as a large/tall car plus roof rack (when I have the westy racks on), haven't taken bikes on the top but they put you in the tall section so plenty of space.

If you book as a camper van it is 50%? more expensive and you're no bigger than a Range Rover.

Re: oil level when fitting an external oil cooler

As Jim says pre-fill the cooler before you attach the pipes, if you’re running an external filter do the same with that, then if it’s a standard sump it’s 2.5 litres give or take to fill the engine, but should be fine to start it up and check the level, if it’s a stock dipstick it’s 0.5 litres betwe...

Hi,

Another photo for you. I think it's a little better in some areas but I'd have to work on the lighting to hope to get it any better. So I'm afraid that's it for now.

Thanks
