Gave the interior a clear out ready for Saturday, considering the interior has had 19 years and 245,000km of use it still looks pretty fresh.
I know many members dislike the light Elgrand interiors due to dirt / stains but this goes to show they can last a while if looked after! :p
I will be driving it on Saturday with trade plates ready for registration which could take 6 - 8 weeks and the first drive since January! :eek:

Black ones I hope …
I’m not really a fan of black wheels on black cars… I prefer a bit of contrast… I think they can disappear if everything is the same colour.
But I appreciate it’s a personal choice and everyone is entitled to their own style!

Bought the material for the packing cushions for under the mattress, girlfriend started a new job and has a long commute so I think it will be a while before they are done.

I've actually grown to like the cream interiors more the more I've seen them, but only if kept in good clean condition like yours. Lovely van Richard.

Never mind it will give you time to get all the cash out you've stashed under there...😁

Removed both the Nissan alarm, and the aftermarket Cobra Cat 2 immobiliser, and fitted a new 100A battery.
The alarm appears to have been murdered at some point in the past, as the sounder was left loose in the area behind the drivers step cubby. Looks like the siren was just cut off, and left loose. Wonder if that's the Rattle I have been hearing since I bought the thing
I wonder if both units were causing drain of the battery?, I would have no way of knowing if the alarm was actually on, triggered or dead!.
After diable was kind enough to help program my RKE yesterday, after only having it in the drawer for 9 years, I was feeling excited.
Cleaned the poor old bus, and polished the headlights, so they are no longer the same colour as the car!
Anyway, no more fiddling with the disarm fob, just get in and start....Yay....

Aftermarket alarms can be a PITA and can cause battery drain so hopefully you have sorted it.

Went for a day in Rennes where they have proper Elgrand size parking spaces.

I do love some of the carparks in France. They seem to cater a lot more for larger vehicles over there
Used one in Monaco that was swanky as hell. So clean your tyres did that screachy thing when driving around it.

Car park was the cleanest place in town.
