    Commer Jennings Roadranger 1967

    That would make a lovely van. It's even got midge screens for the louvres, and I love the walk through (crawl through?) from the cab to the back. But the roof's had a smack top nearside, and you can see the results in the gutters/roof above the passenger door. That's a pity, cos it's a load of...

    Pootle getting hot and bothered

    The Snail

    Sometimes the self adhesive isn't very sticky at low temperatures. I usually warm the foam, and the surface to be stuck to with a hot air gun. Or leave the van in the baking summer sun :cool: for a while before sticking! Or did you mean that the spray adhesive wasn't sticky?

    Full beam issue

    When I was getting mine MOTed it always passed the brake test on the rollers. If it doesn't pass, there's something wrong with the brakes. It's always good to have the computer printout of the roller brake test to check on balance etc.

    Replacing fuse board

    It's a very good idea to replace the original fusebox Here's my set-up...................... Although it looks complicated it's actually really simple. There are three 4 way fuse boxes. The left one is for lights. There's a 35 Amp master fuse at the top in the main feed to the light switch...

    Release Bearing

    Our experience last year was somewhat similar..........We were just down he road in Dubrovnik in our VW camper, (at the same time you were in Hungary) and our spigot bearing collapsed and gave us no end of grief in traffic when it all got hot.
