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

    Watch this space for updates ..........

      Time is getting short for me to do any of the jobs we had planned before we actually 'need' the van.

      Wash your mouth out! We are committed to bringing light into people's lives by showing them a real car.

      I guess going to shows is something to look forward from a week at work.

      Good luck with progress on Saturday.

      Pictures just don't do it justice

      She is stunning. When the sun is on the blue - absolutely pops.

      The colour is called "Pacific blue pearl"

      And apart from the roof all the silver has had a going over too

      Hopefully the sun will be out tomorrow so we can take some more

      Did you go to a show on Sunday or work on the van?

      I swapped the aftermarket steering wheel it came with for an original one.
      We had planned to go to Drayton Manor AAC show but weather and distance put us off along with entry prices. Apparently you have to pay entry to the park and pay to display your car. That would have been £46 quid plus fuel plus 5 hours driving total in what looked to have been pretty crappy weather.
