The Building Of Skylar

Skylar Continues To Grow

Progress Continues I’m pleased with the way things are going at the moment, and looking forward to my up coming road trip to Cornwall nest month 🙂 .
The new additions to my van
Things are starting to take shape at last I now have my twin gas ring hob installed see (Fig.1) next to that i

s a small sink I have yet to plumb the water in and wire up the water pump, something else on my list of jobs.
No gas yet as I’m still waiting for my gas locker to arrive from had a bit of a hold up with the delivery due to a computer technical hitch! But should be arriving tomorrow, so once I have it I can see if the space I have constructed for it is going to be right, otherwise I’ll have to re-plan.

Moving on 23/05/2018.
Things have progressed quite well over the last few days as the weather has been good, don’t know how long it will last so I’m making the most of it!
My gas-locker finally arrived a week late although it is of good quality a well-made item although I think it was a bit pricey.
When it came to installing the locker it fitted great in the space I had purposely built for it, but unfortunately when I went to drill the hole for the drop-out I couldn’t locate a suitable place under Skylar were the drop-out hole could go, so I ended up having to move it round to the side door where there was plenty of space for it to go.
This is Dan my nephew helping out, he’s painting red oxide on the bare metal where the drop-out hole was drilled (See Fig 2)
