The BIG to-do list

So, now that we are back from honeymoon we need to start thinking about getting the van back on the road. There is absolutely loads and loads of work that needs to be done as well as some stuff we would like to have done. It breaks down to the following:

  1. Get quotes and assesments for welding work (sills, jacking points, wheel arches)
  2. Get quotes for having fuel lines completely replaced (engine-out job :-( )
  3. Get front seats fitted properly (I did a bit of a bodge job of this in the past)
  4. Sort out problem with starter motor, possible mounting problem
  5. Wiring loom overhaul
  6. Any other work to get Loki through his MOT test
Would Like
  1. Twin carbs (better economy, more power)
  2. Lowered suspension (better handling)
  3. Upgraded brakes (safer)
  4. Stainless steel exhaust
  5. New wheels fitted (bought a second-hand set of original Wolfrace slot-mag alloys years ago, just need fitting)
  6. Fit rock'n'roll bed
  7. Build camping interior units
  8. Fit new head lining
  9. Interior panel cards re-upholstered
  10. Awning
  11. Cab step for Lydias short legs
And if there is any money left
  1. In-car PC system
  2. LPG conversion

Well, that's all I can think of for now. I shall start tomorrow with getting the quotes for the expensive welding work from Farnborough VW and Berkshire Bugs, let's hope that doesn't blow the budget in one fell swoop!
