I have painted the roof this weekend :D

not the best pic but................

The van needs to go so with the difficulty in getting together for another meet i think we should sell it as it is an MOT'd road legal 95% complete van with ALL the hard work done, i still think it will fetch good money and be nice for someone to enjoy it :D

I have contacted a charity http://raysofsunshine.org.uk/ they organise trips and treats for children with life limiting illnesses - i feel this is a really good cause and i'm sure everyone who's input into the project will agree. They will also provide details of exactly where our donation has gone :D
