You Can Do It, When You Brian and Quincy It

As the freak winter seemed finally have decided to call it a day, sometime near the end of May, thoughts turned to the much delayed camper conversion mission again.

A couple of weekends in a row, we went down to Timber Recycling in Manchester, where the astute reader will remember we scored most of the wood for the original Herman’s conversion. Unfortunately, it seems like it’s either closed down, or they’ve stopped opening at weekends for, although on one occasion, we thought we could hear the sound of sawing coming from inside, the place was chained and locked up. We were similarly unable to raise them on the phone.

So it was that, with heavy heart, we had to resort to trekking to Stockport and going to feckin’ B&Q to purchase their ridiculously over-priced timber. Ended up spending about £70 odd on what would probably have cost about £20 from TRiM.

Don’t be fooled by the fact that the following snaps seem to suggest that Mazza did all the work. The truth will out in the end.
