Re: A hippie with a not-so-minivan

We had someone come and take care of the AC because of the Freon... which some of which then went into our car because we were missing some. The guy was great and took the units with him to sell them for parts and we will trade that for more work on the engine a little later. He also said that he thinks we could probably get our Espar unit (Webasto) to work... and if that is the case then I will be very happy!

We also had another friend come over on Sunday. Ludovic is a old cadet/high school friend of mine.. The last time I saw him he had offered to help us out.

He is more into carpentry but having his help on Sunday kept us going and he was a great bit of help to finish dismantling the rest of the AC that was disconnected, getting the last of the floors out, getting the last traces of the luggage racks out and getting the drivers seat out and then we spend Saturday cleaning and finishing up some last things and now we have a clean slate (well except for the heaters which are still there....




Next on the list...

- Sand a bit of the rust
- Clean the floors again
- Put on Rust Converter
- Prime the Floors
- Insulate

Ack no! Though I would love to be able to get it done in that!

We can go get it on the road at any time though. The inspection was mechanical and was only because it came from out of province and was good for a year so all I have to do is go and pay for the plates that I already have on it and then I can take it off the road again (storage).

It is already licensed as an RV so they won't have to see it again
