Got the machine polisher and poorboys chrome polish out yesterday:



Topped them off with some fk1000p to keep pitting at bay.

Currently up near Abersoch, Wales, with these three:



The dash tidy came in immediately useful:



Drove nice on a run, just gotta watch those cross winds with that high top:



View from my window this morning, looks like the sun is going to do me proud, I'm off hiking with the mutts!

Great camper and project - just the right vintage to still be usable.

Very envious.

Cheers guys

Just gotta wait for a nice stretch of dry weather and I'll be cleaning out the gutters with panel wipe etc, then resealing the high top with this stuff:



Noticed the Propex Heatsource to be a little temperamental over the weekend, going to look into servicing it.

Right, been sorting through what needs doing/looking at when it goes into the garage early next month:

-Coolant flush/change
-Brake fluid flush/change
-Underseal
-Steering wheel straighten (on wonky at the moment, pet hate)
-Check Clutch (very high bite point, unsure if needs setting or clutch worn)

Jobs for me:

-Dinitrol 3125 in box sections
-Sikaflex high top seal
-Update Propex sensor package

Plenty to keep me busy for now!

On the coolant change....have you thought about using the water-less coolant?....it's more expensive than the normal coolant but never needs changing and performs much better than standard stuff apparently.

I have never used it myself but the reports seem impressive.
