Hey dude, nice to hear from you! How's things?! Haven't seen that cab running around Saltash, what's the deal?! Is it getting there? As for what's the news, the engine may be ok after all! After compressing a valve, the pushrod seems to have popped into place. I'm still a bit anxious though, just in case there's a weakness there that might rear its ugly head again. Still, the engine does have a 12 month warrenty so if it does go wrong I shall have something to fall back on.virgobugs said:Whats the latest mate, Looking sweet!!!

Just had an email from Phil, Hens previous owner and he's shed some more light on His history which is interesting. jobs to do before the year is out...1.get a proper pink liscence and 2. send off for Henrys history from DVLA. By the way, whats the beef with Tiggy's interior?
Hope you're both well and all we must catch up soon
As for the history of my car, for you people who don't know, I wrote off to the DVLA to get a list of all the previous owners. I got a list of thirteen people!! The first person to ever own my car was a doctor!! So......I knew it'd be a long shot but I wrote a letter, explaining my situation, owning the car as long as I have, the resto work carried out on it and a few photos of how it's looking now, and sent the letters to all the previous owners!
Ten weeks later I have no replies from owners A couple of really nice people wrote back and said how sorry they were that they couldn't help with my search but that's it!
As for the interior, Rochelle, there is no problem that I am aware of, other than the van actually has nothing in it! :lol:
Helena is very well thanks! Must catch up soon! :hug:
