Weather permitting I will be cutting the last big hole in the once immaculate panels of my Renault Master today!
8 holes already accurately cut with the respective windows, rooflights and vents fitted so, fingers crossed it will be the last large rooflight and the large 150W photovoltaic that are going up on 'Millie' today.
No matter how many times I have cut the holes and no matter how many times I have measured and re-measured the cutting point, the prospect of doing so never ceases to be somewhat daunting!

Cutting the holes is always a knee knocking experience!! The hardest one for me was the one I cut out for the Henry water heater as neither the floor or indeed any of the other components are anywhere near ready for installation yet, but I had to cut this hole so that the panel can be properly spray foamed.
