Meki saying ey up

Postby Meki » 28 Jun 2015 10:18

I'd like to introduce you to Ralph the mk3 Hilux and Billy Bob Brian the Demountable, we've only had BBB a few weeks, he came needing a good bath and his bedding destroying, the first thing we did was to drive him to the local council dump, open the back door and throw half his innards into a skip.

Image

We're in the process of replacing all fittings with stainless, we've had a new bed and seating made by a local upholsterer, they look fabulous, tomorrow he's having a section of floor replaced, the bathroom sink waste pipe wasn't attached, it had been discharging water down the wall behind the C200 for sometime!

He's had a thorough service by a chap that works on those big American RVs that fairground people have, the guy is a genius and drives this monster:

Image

His verdict on BBB was that he's a very good dry van, and now everything works, worth far more than we paid for him

Image

This is an idea for a new graphic for BBB, I'm not sure, I'll revisit it later once the stainless is complete

Hello
Welcome to the group It will be a little quiet at the mo as they are all on the social. I have an adventure looks similar model to yours on a hilux been doing it up since buying it not far off now. I hitched it up yesterday to go to meet the gang but had a problem with the rear lights took me four hours to sort it not best pleased. Will book in early for next year but might not have the adventure have something else in mind.

Here's BBB when we picked him up.

Image

He came with a bike rack, now all shiny, the black mounting metal work is away being plastic coated

The bike rack all cleaned up:

'Meki' the username was puzzling me for hours last night, then I realised the HPOC connection

glad you both enjoyed looking around and you've found Gary now with his own adventure camper, we have another example I'm going to hook you up with for info, give a day or two to catch up on emails

For those of you with a Toyota Hilux, this is what a HPOC meet is like:

Gosh! That's quite some read, you've done an amazing job - BBB's needs aren't any near as bad at that, if fact, the worse will be over with by the end of this coming week, hopefully?
