    Thought I'd start a new blog for my new Astro as there's quite a few bits to do until I'm happy

      Yep. Pictures taken. Everything looks ok and all looks to be there - I put a message into summit in anyway as ups have confirmed they have credited summit the shipping - so summit should credit me - fingers crossed!

      Bigger exhaust cut outs as the others weren't big enough. Air horns that play a different tune to the originals.
      The rest of the caravan?

      Update from body shop - sent me some pictures - one word - wow!

      I'm not going to spoil it by posting the pictures yet as the van is sill unfinished. She still needs flatting and polishing but believe me when I say it's stunning!

      He's hoping to complete it all tomorrow and hopefully I can also pick her up tomorrow but I don't want to rush them (I do really lol)

      Bit disappointed as the van was finished in paint on Tuesday. Unfortunately we couldn't pick her up last night as we had something else planned so arranged to pick her up tonight. Unfortunately he had to go out on an emergency so wasn't there. Tried to get one of his guys to meet us but he was out for a meal. So another night gone by without getting her back. I was getting very excited too. Oh well fingers crossed she's back tomorrow!
