Taking a break from fixing up the van and taking what we thought was a 'small drive' to Hunua falls. We weren't expecting much but it turned out to be pretty cool, even though t took AGGGEESS to get there.
First part of the insulation complete on the ceiling... walls already done. Just fitting the foam insulation to the ceiling tomorrow and running wires for electrics (lights, wall plugs etc).
Then ply line interior ready for fabric wall trims on Saturday 👌 wish us luck! With @motodreaming
Buying a cheap van means work, learnt a few new things in my time living in the mechanics. Even dropping a gearbox and refitting to fit parts inside. I see this all as education. Plus I know that things have been done by me and that they have been done to the best I can do it.
Also to fit the part in the gearbox, a mechanic around the corner quoted 8 hours! I did it in 3... with guidance from the mechanic I was staying at!
Crazy what some people will charge...
Next to complete insulation and the internal fit out 👌😁
Settling into work in New Zealand, and due to being on the move in a couple of months again. I need to save money and also can't get a tenancy for a couple of months.
So we have turned to #vanlife and also house sitting which includes looking after the house and pets. As you can tell this is our first day and it's started out as a nightmare ☺️
