update on all things engine...

sunny 25 °C

The T-Unit went in for a Service on Tuesday. We got the van back on Saturday and there was lots of little things fixed.

We still have our wiper problem at the moment, but it is fixable. We're trying to source the Wiper Linkage part ourselves to try and save a bit of cash, but I trust Fergus (our mechanic) and if we can't find it, we'll leave the van in his very capable hands!

Fergus gave us a full list of the work he carried out, helps us out when we come to sell the van after summer. Most of the repairs were small, but significant. But it's the little things that make a difference and I'm already feeling more confident about the van. T-Unit has been well looked after by its previous FIVE owners! and it shows.

We got the windscreen replaced on Monday. Delighted and relieved when the fitted told us our van was "minted" as he'd previously failed to replace windscreens as a result of corroded windscreen lip. He told us van's have been scrapped for this reason alone. We'd have been distraught if this had been the case for us - but luck was on our side, and we had a shiny new windscreen in place after 30mins :)

Massively relieved to have the windscreen replaced, was beginnin to get paranoid about the chip getting bigger and shattering while I was driving!
But all catastrophes were averted and once we get the wipers fixed we're pretty much ready to roll!

2.5weeks left at work, and it's 3.5 weeks untill we leave! So close I can smell the salty sea air already!
