I thought I should put up some finished pic's of the Motorhome before I get too carried away!

This is Crickleput bridge in Exeter taken a few weekends ago I waited for ages for the people to stop but they kept on coming and I got bored waiting for them so I took the pics any way It has light all across it so I am planing to go back at night to see what its like!

Well I started my new project this Bank Holiday I know its a bit premature but I don't have too much more to do to the Motor home I am just waiting on other people and some trims to arrive then a couple of hours and an mot will see it done!! when its finished I will take some more pic's of it!
In the mean time here's some of the Bridges that I have done this weekend! The first one is of Sturminster mill, I slowed down the water to give it a milky smooth effect, the other two are Millers Crossing in Exeter one is an IR image I will let you guess which one!! This was put up on 22 November 2002. I will put some more up when I get time!!

My to do list is getting shorter by the day.
Just got to put back the A/C, do the trims around the cupboards, tidy up the wiring, put shelves back in, find the gas leak, put curtains back up, re make one trim for the bunk bed, put wheel arches back on (when they have been made), re fit back bumper and lights, put outside trim inserts, back in, paint shower floor with rubber paint, get all the sealant off the body work.
Then call Jenny in to give it a good clean up in side even though I have done some of it today there's nothing like the female touch!!

Then start my next project, ie go touring in it to photograph bridges!!

Ive had a busy time lately so I haven't put anything up so now I have five minutes to spear this is on the top of my to do list!!
I painted and put back in the last window sealed the leaky front window refitted the toilet, wash basin, re fitted rear bed and front bed put all cupboard doors back on.
The last big job I have to do is put the Air conditioning back. I haven't done this yet because it is a two man job coz its heavy!

You will have to excuse the odd shaped photo's Ive used my ultra wide angle lens to get as much in as passable!

I haven't written anything for a wile so I thought I had better catch up!! I how have got the hot water tank back in after having to Waite for a flew extension because the walls are a little bigger now!! the heating is back on as well so its nice and toasty in there now, sorted out the wiring and as you can see we now have lights! and all the sockets work as well. I remade the bed in the back this weekend, I cant believe how long it is taking having to alter virtually everything by the slightest amount. Had the first casualty I burnt out my old faithful 24v battery drill, well it has screwed in at least 800 3.5mm screws and 400 3mm screws on this job alone!! so I now have a nice new 18v one which seams to be OK at the mo. all I have to do now is fit the fridge, air con and then sort out the shower/toilet room then a massive clean out and off on the 10th April to the show as long as the chappie making the new rear bumper and wheel arches comes through!

I haven't done anything to it for a wile its been too cold!! I bought an electric radiator to get some heat into it!! so it will start drying!
This weekend I got stuck back into it, I couldn't refit the water heater because the wall is too thick so I have had to find a vent extension for it which should arrive soon! I started putting back the cupboards which was quite entertaining a bit of a balancing act at times especially as I was on my own! but I got there in the end , refitted the shower and Toilet room walls.
I am on schedule for my next deadline which will be the camping show.

Saturday, 9 January 2010

Well I have had a reprieve this weekend, I was superposed to be going to the bath and west show ground for a three day motorhome show but due to the weather it has been postponed until April 10th, I wont miss that one! That means I have officially only missed one deadline. I have bought a small electric heater to help with the cold!! which seams to be working quite well!! I have started putting the shower room back together but now run out of screws and heater pipe should be arriving on Monday!. Just been looking at motorhomes on ebay and now wondering why I have bothered I should just have got a loan and cut out all the heartache and haste!!! hind sight is a wonderful thing!!
