oh and wifeys making a start on the new interior, so I got no door cards on now :roll:

so its been a while since I posted in here, been out in the van a few times and its been behaving itself until last Friday :evil: dont think it was the 13th.
booked it in for an mot, then realised it was gonna be 30 degrees :roll: v6 transit = hot weather is not good, yeah it konked out as i tried to drive on the ramp :lol: god old vapour lock, with the rear wheels stuck in the brake rollers, wot a bag of sh*t :shock:
me and the boy managed to get it on the ramp so mot man could do his thing, dont think he was too impressed, then after a bit of a cool down it fired right up, as it always does :roll:
on the way home, was going to the indian to collect dinner, bad idea and yeah the fooker konked again, only this time as i stopped at a roundabout, yep lets just block the road in a bright yellow transit :lol: hang on, it gets worse, the boy pulls up in his 1.2 litre washing machine and offers me a tow, really, :shock: :roll: :lol:
dont think im gonna live that one down for a while
and yep you guessed it, pulled up outside the garage at home on the end of the rope, and the fooker started up :twisted:
happy dayz
:lol:
so got some mods planned to see if we can cure its hot issues, i'll keep ya posted :D
