    Do you *ever* finish though?

    If you're the sort that can happily ignore little problems, maybe you do. I bought my van from someone like that, they ignored all the minor niggly problems, that irritated me until I fixed them. Not to mention the myriad of little extras and improvements that I've made to make the van more suitable for us. But I just keep on finding extra jobs to do! Admittedly all the inherited bits that needed repairing have long since been done

    Example - today's little job - the garage has no light in it, bit of a pain when you arrive in the dark. I could put up with it - keep on using a torch as I have been so far. But no, that's too easy, I've discovered how unutterably brilliant LED strips are, and so cheap if you're willing to wait from them to come direct from China. £3 for a 2m long waterproof self-adhesive strip, perfect to stick under one of the bunk support rails, tough too. But the garage has doors on each side, so how about wiring in 2-way switches so you can switch on or off from either side, or even on from one side and off from the other, just like on your hallway at home. Yes, why not..............

    Good job I tend to keep vehicles for a while........:)
