Big progress today, after 4 days of fettling but not a great deal of expense Betsy passed her MoT today. So now we can start on a respray followed by freshening up the interior.

We've pretty much decided on green and grey. The little door is for emptying the cassette toilet.

I can feel some mountain biking camping trips coming up sometime soon.

Brilliant. You have to get some pics of the inside up.

I'm going to buy a 'camper' this year, been promising myself one for years and finally settled on a Mazda bongo as an introduction.

Pal of mine swapped his 2.5 auto Bongo for a 3 litre petrol Shogun and appreciated the improvement in fuel consumption... :shock:

Guys, I'm well jealous! I've always wanted a large day van/small camper and woman has promised me one for my 50th birthday.

Here's ours:Image

2.5 4wd Bongo Friendee. VW's were just too expensive, they a have a great following and can be very pimped but too rich for us, and very van like. The bro-in-law converts vans, concentration on VW's to a very high standard. Even with it in the family, still stupid money.
So, we went with the Bongo, and hell, it's called a Bongo Friendee!
