Starter motor finally gave up the ghost.
Had been lazy starting for a while until one day nothing.
New one fitted and the van started so quick it shocked me so I reckon mine had been bad for at least a year or so :lol:

Ordered some bits to hopefully tidy up the small rust spots whilst I'm stuck at home.
Wanting to finally fit my front arches too and repaint the wheels.
Then sort a mechanical to do list out

Got the rears done. Trying to take my time as I'm prone to rushing stuff and then wonder why it looks a mess (like some panels on the van :lol: )

Fluro Yellow you say, fantastic. Can't believe how good it looks with a white van. That yellow is so lush man! Love it. Love it. Love it. Wheels are looking extra awesome now!
