Hi T.A.
I have not done a lot since the disc brake convertion
due to christmas expences such as nine grandchildren.
& three daughters,
I have plans for this year including moving down south
if all goes well,
I have some great ideas for the camper but don't know
if finances are going to be there this year,
Wil do what i can to finish it this year but as a project
will it ever be finished as people keep coming up with
new products to improve out lives.
this is a list of some of the things i already have to
fit such as sat nav which i bought last year.
It includes reversing camera. television. cd player.
I have also wired in but not finished a cruise control.
I bought that about six years ago before i had her
painted as you can see in the pictures on photobucket.
also one of the LED lights at the rear is playing up
so intend to replace with later type ones.
I also need to finish the door wiring & panels,
there is no carpet in the front so that needs sorting
& there is no heater as yet so the story continues.
will definately be at Billing by hook or by crook.
look forward to meeting lots of you this year now
my camper is driving beautifully.
Happy Transiteering to you all.
Thanks to you all for your interest & encouragement.
Have a Great New Year.

unfortunatly it was the only v8 engine to come up in two years of
looking at a sensible price as i bought the whole car for three
hundred pounds.
also chrysler use one of the best gearbox's around.
don't forget i also used the propshaft & power steering box
from the same car.
also the ford engine is bigger & i had trouble getting the chrysler
engine to fit anyway.
still you can't keep some of the people happy all of the time or
all of the people some of the time.
as the camper was built on a shoestring beggers can't be choosers.
happy Transiteering.

Hi J.C.
I did actually put the month.
Hope you could make it even if
it was only to collect bezel & have
a coffee together.
best wishes C.E.

Hi Transit lovers just a few more pictures at photo bucket
of my convertion as i fitted a four barrell holley carb to
the chrysler 318cu in engine as it was orriginally fitted
with only a two barrell carb which obviously restricts the
breathing of the engine.
