time flies when you’re having fun in a 52 year old camper

Sad anniversary

Hard to believe that it was literally a year ago today I bought this VW camper after having lost my previous bus to fire – clearly time does fly when you’re having fun in a 1964 vintage VW camper!

Electrical gremlins

Another anniversary that coincides with getting the bus is renewing its MOT! Having spent a lot of time going through the bus over during the first year of ownership and getting its mechanicals checked and/or updated, any issues should be minor… The MOT inspector was very impressed with the overall condition of a 52-year-old bus! However, as part of their thorough inspection, did pick up a couple of minor electrical gremlins. The rear number plate light and the horn were not working (connection/earth issues or maybe a bulb?) and there was a slight imbalance in the front brakes.

Good first year

So not too bad. I’ll get these bits sorted to get the MOT passed so I can be back on the road again soon…
