Finally driven it! Brakes are "interesting" how they passed MOT I have no idea. Either binding or not working :lol:

Its home!

120 mile journey and about 5 miles in I ended up disabling the front brakes due to binding.

Turns out the master cyl was pretty rusted up internally. Its also underpowered - but not sure why yet!

Not had a chance to do much with this yet... done a couple of hundred miles towing and it really is flat as a fart :(

Other than that just spread some rust converter about

Barely touched this, its currently on SORN - but will be going to mania at the weekend.

I have serviced it...and found the PAS pipes were leaking. Due the steel rotting out. Needless to say the pipes are specific to a 94-96 DRW high cube so arn't available anywhere :x

Some normal 94-96 pipes were procured (£130 odd) and modified to suit....

I now have a list of things to complete before or at Mania - lets see how I get on?

I have a few hours before I leave on Thurs morning and I need to get my leisure batteries and the split charge in and working to run the fridge/freezer.

At mania I will also get the eberspacher (air) heater wired up and plumbed in - plus the 240V supply :D This will be happening in/next too the pit stop tent - your welcome to come and ask questions etc
