      wouldnt water splash up off the road and start rotting the wood again (or am looking that the pics the wrong way up)
      looks great though well done on the repair

      hello, yes the wood is marine ply,and is fully sealed, the whole lot will be covered with aluminium sheet and then sealed, so will be fully waterproofed.

        i have for a while been thinking how can i repair a couple of holes in the aluminium side panels,looking at the holes i think some thing metal has been in contact with the alloy and over time worn through, anyhow i thought about sticking reflectors over them, then i thought about fitting two side marker lamps, just finishing wiring them up, uploaded two photos .

            gas tap.

            While i am at this point on rebuilding the back of my motorhome,i have decided to fit an external gas point, after seeing one in use I thought what a good idea, just bought one on e-bay complete with all fittings, ideal for the barby.

              I might even get to like Barby`s if all romahomes had a gas point like that
              Wonder if i could fit one,I shall watch you and learn.thankyou.

              p.s Have a great christmas

                Nice work you've done there and can highly recommend the external gas point for the BBQ!!

                            DSCF0544.jpg Hi Ian I made a aliminium bracket and fixed it using the seat belt bolts which are in the top of the gas locker in the Pullman version, the regulater was moved a little to make the pipe work easier and to fit the isolater valve. Making the bracket was fiddly as there isn't much room to get the propane bottle in or shut the locker door. The gas outlet is a Bullfinch.

                                The external gas valve arrived on thursday, and I fitted it today, it was fairly easy to cut the panel, all piped up luckily the van was already fitted with a three way gas valve so connection was easy, all fuctioning okay, all ready for the barby.uploaded a couple of pics.
