No, silly arse, not got a vid of mine though yet, ours has no oven yet, seeking options right now, and the step is fine for normal sized people, are you a dwarf or something

Why would Stanner want to help me anyway???

Bit of progress this week, ordered Spinflo hob, oven and grill which arrived this morning, only ordered yesterday afternoon For Elys.

I did want to get the space knocked up last week as I had the height, but I couldn't confirm the fitted cabinet width, so had to wait for it to arrive, anyhoo sods law it's bloody narrower than the existing opening, so some fettling will be needed big fettling like rip out one half of the kitchen as I can't do anything to it which would pass inspection to me let alone anyone else, so luckily I still have a some off cuts from the self build, more lucky is they pretty much match up, less lucky is I'm about 150mm short on length, so a bit of a job to do there, I can use my Biscuit jointer and keep the kick panel of the old bits, and biscuit join them to the then long enough off cut which I will need to take two cuts off to make the width about an inch narrower.

See latest dated pics in my NEW CI 141 link in my Sig.

Nice to see you are spending some time on the van instead of on here.
You are not allowed to say dwarf, it has to be small people now.
You complained earlier about having to step up and it hurts ones back, so I assumed you would have fitted a stanner stair lift. You must lead a sheltered life.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Looks more like one of those pills you take, or a cushion that you keep around your neck.
What design does the boss have for the upholstery. As a matter of interest I ask is the bike rack strong enough for the spare, It would give me loads of storage extra if I did that.

No bike rack on this, you're looking at another van, do keep up, but I'd not think any Fiamma stuff would do that, why not just put underneath like the do on proper motorhomes

After Cabbies title huh, Mini Arse will have to do you


We didn't find what we were looking for, but this had promise, it didn't have an oven any way FFS so I'd have had to either find one to fit or change it, the latter is far easier for me.

So which is the van in those photos of(D.I.Y) building works in progress then with the Ex Irish number plate.A ladder and a bike rack and spare wheel attached.
I keep the spare in a locker, easy to reach and one does not have to crawl around under the van to recover it when needed.
I am rather worried that you keep on thinking of Arse's, is there no treatment you could have for this sorry state.Or is it a northern thing.

We are beginning to think that Liz, bless her, lets you have these DIY projects just to keep you out of her way, wise woman.
