  1. Cheers guys. I will look into it, The RAC recovered my 9tonne American R-V from the Santander Ferry to the Midlands. So so far I cannot complain. The recovery vehicle was something to see. sliding bed. never even scratched the overhang!. Pete
  2. Thanks Clive. I`m trying to think ahead, and as currently there is no Dash or anything in the way, just the shell, I wondered about temporary fastening it in and glassing the exterior in situ. My theory being that would ensure an accurate fit?. Pete
  3. My eldest Grandson (Dan) Lives In the hills above Gosford (NSW). He`s a working plumber, What he hates most is when he has to go into the undercrawl of some older houses. The "critters" tend to hide there. He`s been bitten by a spider, and needed urgent medical attention on one occasion. He had a big black bugger in his garage for a long while, could never catch it. Eventually it just vanished?. What Pete(T) needs is a Mongoose?. Had some good runs ashore in Capetown. P-E and Durban, Weirdest place was Walvis Bay. We Berthed near what had been a Waleing Station, loads of Abandoned Wh
  4. Thinking laterally, I have come across (in later vehicles) where Earthing "lugs" are welded to the bodywork? and the Spade terminal is just pushed on to it. It might be worth investigating?. Pete
  5. Hi I`m considering Fibreglassing the whole cover, to impart some rigidity and repair a section that is "suspect". Any one done it and did it introduce distortion?. And would you put it inside the cover or outside?. I`m going to put "noico" on the cover anyway. Pete
  6. You would get the same "effect" by putting a Pipe Fitting "olive" on the end of the pipe, getting the fitting off after might be problematic, and sacrificial, and require the use of a small hacksaw to remove?. Pete
  7. I have "multivehicle cover", for the Motorhome and Mine and Herself`s Daily`s. Includes full RAC recovery. As it`s "Any vehicle I am using" type cover, I assume the 13/60, whenever it hit`s the road would be covered regardless?. Pete
  8. Jabbing!. Was at time`s a way of light relief, Usually 7 to 10 days after a "run ashore" in some "popular" port of call. There would be the Usual queue to see the Doctor and get a "Chit", and the prescription. The Chief or purser would then get the job of administering to the aflicted on a daily basis!. Something of a "Spectator Sport" at times!.🤣 Pete
  9. Spire Clip?. Goes on the metal floor edge with the Lip to the underside of the vehicle?. Pete

    Telephone rings, woman answers. Pervert, breathing heavily, says, "I bet you have a tight arse with no hair?" Woman replies, "Yes, I have. He's watching the rugby.... Who shall I say is calling?"
  11. Whilst I have used PTFE in a variety of situations. I would never recomend it`s use on a "new" connection. The olive should seal the connection without any assistance.? I would also caution about flaring the pipe, the flare could remove slivers of the hose inner whilst being pressed on?. Pete
  12. IF. it`s the one I saw. The Stag (White?) has a known gearbox oil leak?. Otherwise it looks tidy?. Pete

    A few years ago robbers entered a bank in a small town. One of them shouted: "Don't move! The money belongs to the bank. Your lives belong to you.” Immediately all the people in the bank laid on the floor quietly and without panic. This is an example of how the correct wording of a sentence can make everyone change their view of the world. While running from the bank the youngest robber (who had a college degree) said to the oldest robber (who had barely finished elementary school): "Hey, maybe we should count how much we stole." ? The older man replied: "Don

    Our one time "resident" Blackbird used to sit in/on the Bush adjacent to the Ensuite window, the only one open at night, So we got the "Dawn Chorus" daily. Sadly, we think he fell victim to one of the local raptors. His successor prefer`s the garage roof!, Which is IMV even more exposed! We suspect we have a pair of robins in the Clematis on the north fence, lots of activity there. Pete
