    My mate had one in his old van, but he didnt fit it himself, it was done by a car body repair shop, and was on the side at the back. If doing it yourself, the single skinned part of the back door (where the window would be) would probably be the easiest place to mount it. But be careful, i have worked in car body repair shops before, and i can testify, 'cut' metal edges are VERY sharp!. Also, make sure you paint the exposed metal edges, otherwise they will rust.[hr]
    Ha, ha!, reminds me of one time, donkeys years ago at a works xmas meal. The waiter asks my pal what he wanted to drink.
    "An amsterdam", he replied.
    The waiter looks puzzled and asks "what is an amsterdam?". My pal says, "a f*ckin' big port"!.

    Ah, i see, not sure about them, but presumably a hole, or holes will still need to be made, so any exposed edges will still need to be painted. Also, bear in mind it will be very prone to freezing up in the winter as you will have the wind chill factor, plus icy debris thrown up by your tyres.

    Very true good thinking , I think i will put a tee in so i can isolate the underneath in the winter . Keep ideas coming
     
  9. I got given a bottle of port for xmas once and said "thanks I've not tried port" to which my mother in law replied "Jamie, you drank a whole bottle last year!" That would go to explain why I didn't remember!
    Good stuff with cheese :)

    I've seen a couple of these before, I have no idea how to start putting those onto vans though and connecting them up. Be very handy when it's set up though.
