Anthracite Wheels

I never did like the silver wheels so now they have been refinished Dark Anthracite by Lepsons in in Gillingham. They are a high gloss finish and not quite black. Very smart.

It came about because I went to our local tyre dealer who managed to gouge a rime when fitting new tyres so they offered to get it refinished. So while they did that I paid for the other 3 to be done. I had to borrow an old set of steels for a week while ours were being done.

Last Tax Disc

This is the last tax disc the we will very have to buy. As from 1 June 2015 we can have a clear windscreen. What it does tell you is that authorities believe that they have ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cracked.

Oh yes and from June2015 they will be making an extra months tax each time a vehicle changes hands, i.e. the seller gets a refund from the end of the month and the buyer pays from the start of the month.

Our new VW T5.1

Got our new van today, a VW T5.1 Kombi. Really looking forward to using it and to having it converted.

Van Blanc

Although we still have our business van we be driving The VW as it is until the camper conversion is done in a couple of months.

For anyone interested the spec is 140 DSG (Automatic) T30 Highline with several extras such as Xenon lights, removable towbar, side airbags, leisure battery, electric mirrors and VW Thunder alloys.

In August it will be going to Kingfisher Campers to have a full camper van conversion done.
