    Hi guys, thought I would introduce myself, married with 3 kids - all flown the nest - Time served engineer on buses, hgv's, left the tools 30 years ago and started college lecturing and assessor for VQs in aero engineering. Now retired. Have caravanned/campervanned for almost 50 years on and off. Hobbies - playing keyboard, motorhoming, and photography. Just purchased a Fiat 15 1.9TD CI Carioca, '02, and just finding my way around it as owner can't find Carioca handbook, or Fiat owner manual - but getting there. Located in South Ayrshire. dru. :Smile:

    You will
    Soon find your feet
    Then the throttle
    Then the fun meet
    Then the fun starts :thumb:

    Any problems see a doctor
    Any troubles. See the wife
    Any thing else. And you'll see us. Laughing at you. After the first two :Rofl1:

    Well you're not going to trouble us with many questions.

    But you might answer a load.

    I got a FIAT Ducato workshop manual of ebay for a few pounds. Not brilliant but much better than nothing.
