bought a small chicken this morning at a reduced price, great a nice curry me thinks so when it was cooked I left it on the ring to reduce sauce. Said I was tired , nodded off and think the burning smell woke me up!!! sauce is reduced alright to a black crust. Still have a recipe for butter chicken made with a tandoori chicken so think that will make it good.

Totally fobared last night after fitting front roof liner to van, you have to fit it concave in roof and then push up so it springs into place . Lost count of the times I had to remove it till shape was right, arms still very sore this morning but at least its done and looks right. "Easy " day today mostly painting door cards and varnishing roof liner .
Knees playing me up as stopped taking fish oil, will start again to see if it works

Glad that roof liner looks right Davina!
Good luck with the fish oil.

Can you rig up small windshield wipers?

Dear Davina:
Good morning to you....  just 7:30AM here but you are in your late afternoon now "over there".
Nice to read your good and happy report.....

You have been working on your van for quite a long time now.... what more needs to be done and when do you expect that you will have it finished???

HUGS,
Danielle

Just over 3 years of spare time , to start with I only had 3 days off work every 2 weeks. Spanner check tomorrow and then rust proofing then gets parked up till next year so I can save up . Whats left , well seat/bed cushions and covers, front seats need recovering , tap for sink, cooker unit, 2 new rear tyres , oil leak from pushrod tube seal and some tidy up /finish off jobs. Will be going to shows and holidays   depending on funds when I retire end of next March.
I will post some photos when my internet speed is sorted. My next project is my hot rod /street rod (depends on your point of view) so hope I have a few more weeks of furlough to tidy up/sort unit and make a start , luckily there is a lot of chassis and body work (welding) that I should have enough bits for.Now this has been an on and off build for 18 years.

Dear Davina:
Thank you for updating me and the rest of your followers are happy to view the photos that you shared.

The exterior and the interior of your van look terrific...  did you refit the ceiling the van also? 

LOOKS GREAT!   including the Thermos and coffee cup!!!

HUGS,
Danielle

Pammie its Velvet Green !!! Danielle yes , my wood work skills are not the best and  there is a few cockups . Rear roof wood got damp last winter and left marks but its added to the caricature , loving it.
Shame 3 years of transition have not had the same results-------

I love the wood work. I tried to restore a Austin Healy 3000 when I was younger. No patience to do it. I really envy you work
