if its still ok with you Karl we'll use this thread for organising the manchester meet at yours :D

we need to set a date see who's still up for attending and organise jobs to do

hopefully i can get it MOT'd and then possably drive it to the event 8) if not at least we would have a list of MOT failure jobs to work through and i will A-frame the van there :D

jobs that will need doing

side door painting same colour as rest of van
rear doors repairing or renewing and painting
interior ply lining and carpeting
roof lining fitting
underside of van shultz-ing

one thing we will definitely need at this meet is a man (or woman) who can paint the side door and the back doors to a high enough standard to match the rest :D - i know my limits, i could paint the roof but no panels on view :lol:

i spoke to fordboynick yesterday he's gonna ring me - if anyone knows he will :D

i think the bonnet guy fitted is diamond white and its not far off - the door is definatly frozen white. i'm sure we can get a match - and being realistic the paint nick put on is a good standard so it would be better to paint the doors to match rather than paint the full van given the time we have and the other jobs we need to do on it :D

right Karl needs to sort a date for this - what we need is a 2 part list - those who are definitley coming and those who would like to but can't be certain - that way we can arrange the date around those who will definitely be there

copy and paste the list and add your name (or take it off)

the list

those who will be there 100%
