Good news on the lorry!

3T had her test today and although she failed she is mechanically sound with no advisories!

Things she failed on -

Reflectors on back door, needs them, Pete added chevrons, like the last lorry, they are not needed now but will stay!
Passenger side step mirror.
Needs two smaller mirrors under or above the wing mirrors.
A sign inside saying 'this vehicle is limited to 90 k/m per hour'

The VOSA man said after her last test, the law has changed hence needing these things.

We then bought them and Pete and Michael will fit them tomorrow and back she goes!

An extra 12 re-test fee on top of the 132 test fee today....and the insurance and breakdown cover we took out this morning! My card squeaked a bit....

No advisories either, epic! Pete is over the moon all that hard work has paid off, the fails are fine, it's just law changes....he was worried about the mechanical side!

Will tax her on Thursday (beat end of month rush at the post office on Friday!) then we will be off out for a run on Sunday....also adding stickers when the rain scuttled away....

Happy Dayz...

Well, it was all go earlier, we started to put in the roof boards in the living area after Pete spending ages working out the wires, seeing which belonged to which lights! Have figured out now which switch works the lights in the horse area and which for the toilet and main living area lights, so that's a start!

Will add more pics soon.... X

Not updated this in a while!

The lorry is on the road and has been for a little bit, being used regularly.

My cousin is coming to do the living area for us when she's back off holiday.

This pic was taken yesterday at Wragby Show, Pete's granddaughter asked to borrow lily as her pony has been a bit naughty recently.

Will have more pics of the living area being done soon.
