Marvin has started getting ready for Coledale.
His suspension has been sand blasted and repainted and new bearings installed.
His tow hitch has been expertly rebuilt by Geoff. For those who are interested in old tow hitches, at the weighbridge it took me less than 15 minutes to disconnect, have him weighed, and reconnect with no assistance from anyone. He weighed in @ 380 kilos.
He is covered if anything goes wrong (check out the insurance company's description)
And I'm looking forward to Marvin being at Coledale too, he looks great.
Those bits of insurance paper do they indicate that you have insurance for $10000 with a premium of $39.33
And, have you found a way of getting the number plate you have without paying the yearly rental charge the the dirty rotten greedy thieving mongrels at the NSW RTA have the hide and audacity to charge us
It's good to see Marvin back from the brink of dispair, living at the back of the Berry Pub. I cant wait to see him again at Coledale he is looking good. Great work to both of you. P.S I'm also insured with Dawes they do a good deal on old cars & caravans.
Hi Alan. Great to see Marvin is once again street legal. The photo of the suspension shows the leaf springs and the closes end of the spring doesnt have an eye, was it broken or is it suppose to be like that. Cheers. Trodler.

It has taken a while for me to get back to photobucket, but here's a photo of Marvin at Coledale
While we were down there, we talked to a lot of you about the design of Marvin's annex. We decided to have it made in plain silver/grey canvas with a line of windows to match Marvin's front windows. The black strip along the window line is supposed to make it look like the side of an aircraft fuselage. The whole thing turned out to be a bit bigger than we intended and Marvin gets a little lost inside it,
but it keeps him out of the sun,
it has plenty of room inside,
and it has a big covered area out the front which worked really well down at Kendall's Beach.
The 24 volt LED lighting is now installed. Jenny & our son Mark designed and manufactured the art deco glass panels for the light fittings.
At the flick of a switch, the panels can be changed to coloured mood lighting.
We are still hoping to have the cabinets finished and Marvin polished for Mt Gambier.
