Welding day today. Rear bumper coming off.

Been putting this off for a long time now. Knew it was lurking but not really been getting any worse as far as I could see.............

Pictures of the rust are too graphic for a family friendly forum.
Might post before and after pics when all done.

Rest of it still ok? Had it quite a while now if I remember.... Compared to the motorhome it's minor troubles :)

Now, pictures, I'll sign a disclaimer against being traumatised if needed... but put'em up! :)

Not nice but at least its getting done and Simon is a really good welder too so it'll be a high standard. Looks to be a fair amount of filler used prior to your ownership :(

Out of surgery now.
On the road to full recovery. Cancer in remission.
Bit of heart surgery next. TT supplied the donor. Dr James has the scalpel.

All fitted and driving again.
Standard clutch is now the limiting factor.

I know, I'll chuck some more money at it!

Random electrical gremlins now.
Climate control fan motor only sometimes works.
EDU lights now intermittent.
Central locking obviously intermittent.

Driving gently so as not to stress the clutch with the new power levels. But still drives in an easy sedate manner.
The perfect scenario......power if you want it.

Plug to the back of the speedo unit? Ignition barrel?
Clutch will be fine - same as mine and I've abused the hell out of it, never slipped once.

Put the new Rainsport tyres on today.
Feels different, but in a good way.
The fitting guy reckons they will last 6 months. Good but soft as hell.
