The van is ready for the open road.

After a lot of trouble and inspections by three different garages, I finally got the Van a roadworthy certificate (MOT to you guys in the UK), and it now has a new set of number plates
I guess we can now say it is past its renovation period and into its showing off period.
We took it out on its first outing yesterday, a club picnic, but it was forecast to rain and we were joined only by 2 modern cars
The door step on the drivers side hasn't been properly made, and in the rain water comes off the front wheel, in through the step and onto the roof in the inside at the back. The water then runs forward on the channel holding the top section on, and lands on the driver - that is me.
A new foot-well plate inside both front doors is a must before it goes out in the rain again
The Van has new signage - on my Side "Mr JB's JB" and on Annette's side "Mrs JB's JB" It looks rather smart
For those of you that haven't followed all this blog my first name is John and my surname begins with a B - That is why I HAD to have a JB Van
I have been promised photo's of the van (by the vendor two sellers ago) when it was undergoing a bare metal respray a few years ago, so these are coming, and lots more trips with other MORRIS vehicles are planned. The Club we take this out with has lots of Morris cars, but most are 1920 so our Van is really young.

The JB grill fitted some time ago and still sporting the old rego plates.
