Yep, getting the right parts would have been my concern too Bill, and that they are a good fit. I imagine that as moulds age the fit becomes a bit approximate.
Not too much Jean, I just hope they will be the right ones, although Matthias is pretty confident because they were ordered by the part numbers.The excitement is building!
You guess wrong 😁 Matthias has just called to say he has 3 packages, he is not able to unpack them today, but will call me in the morning when he has.My guess is that it is still at the Berlin depot.
That is what he will do now Bill, he also has to renew the ( I think they are called damals) the black stripe on the side.Unfortunately evrey batch will be slightly different also your remaining trim will change colour over the years the only way to get them all same is to paint all the trim
9 out of 10 demals is decalsThat is what he will do now Bill, he also has to renew the ( I think they are called damals) the black stripe on the side.
I thought I had typed decals 😕 you knew what I meant so I get 9 out of 10 Thank you.9 out of 10 demals is decals
At least it sounds like they are getting stuck into it Jan. Worra Job! I guess he will want paying so may well get a shift on.Progress is being made, but not as quickly as he would like because he is unable to remove the surrounds of the lockers or the door to fit the new ones so has repaired the old ones. It is a lot more complicated than first thought. here is a part he has repaired or renewed not sure which, there was a lot to understand.

A lot of time is waiting, now he is waiting for some compound to dry hard before he can carry on, my bed had to be dismantled to remove an inside panel to get the new lining in and loads of other stuff he had to do that I didn´t even think about He showed me the difference between the when new colour and now because when the decal was removed underneath is the original bright white. he wants to get the new as near to the old as possible so I told him to change the colour and make it all red.
It was all very well packed, this is the door which he won't unpack until he is ready to put it in because of all the spray & dust about so I hope to goodness it will fit.

Getting out the old fly screen and putting the new one in is also not simple.
He still can´t promise to have it ready in 2 weeks but said he will try his best.
He is also going to move the electric connection from under the side flap to a place I can reach without standing on my head, a rather silly arrangement Auto-Trail had.
He managed to find me a new second hand fridge that fits, the new fridges here he said are a few centimetres bigger. The old one has bits missing that either the fire brigade removed or the criminal police removed, they did a lot of work to make sure nobody was trying to get rid of me.

If it'd not ready by Easter then it´s not. When it is finished I will then go directly to France instead of North first.
I case you have forgotten what it looked like on the 1st of June last year.
