When i first did see the car i was close to start crying.










Before i bought the car,it was used as blue and black "russ" car.
Russ= Graduating students goes for party 2months before graduation from school.

Mine was saved from the scrap yard also. Previous owner had the cylinder head go and while it was parked uninsured it was broken into windows smashed and radio stolen.
It is now almost back to how it should be. Still can't MW on the radio though.

Best of luck keep the photos coming.

Next week the timing belt,wather pump and fan belt will be replaced. Don`t now how old the parts are,so it`s best to replace it before breakedown. Found one that take the job for 1200nok-

Perfect place for the rods.
Im using the gas burner as i sit in the car and wait for the pod to beep.

I think you mean Mullet?

Mallet is a type of hammer, mostly made of wood although can be plastic now days.

Did driwe over a euro pallet,so a corner of the car did fall off. About 1 kilo of plastic padding... Welded new corner between slide door and back weel. Huge amounts of rust and sparkel anywere... Sad
Seems like an newerending job too keep the hiace from the wreckyard.
Painted the car white inside,black was not the finest colour.

Here in Bergen. Only some small fish this trip. Visited a friend who caught a Conger conger,but i never seen one live,only photos.
ME WANT ONE TOO!



The 13" rods fit`s just in.



Qit work for the season in about 3weeks,so now it`s time for go`fishin.

Best regards. Robert.

Sorry about the photos.
Server is kaputt/finich.

The old camper is back on the road again.
Got parts from a wreck with rectangular lights,but no new door.

Used a pencil to paint the new parts,so the camper is now a "chabby chick"
Got it approved for 2more years on the road,just some small parts that needed to be fixed.Brakes,exhaust and the cross in steering axle.

Photos of the "wreck" comes later this summer.

Summer greetings from Norway.
