Celebraton 466 for sale

This is painful, my beautiful PUS needs a new home, he's been sat in a garage for 4 years, long story but now needs a new loving owner, needs a bit of attention but only 117K and new gearbox at 100k, will post piccies and more details this weekend.
cheers

Re: Hibernation - do's and don'ts

:hopping: well after 4 years snoozing in the garage he came out to see the sunlight again at the weekend, starts first time just sounds a little rough. Biggest issue before i decide what to do with him is one of the pop ups refuses to budge (both DRL are fine) bugger me I can't for the life remember...

Re: My new life with a youngtimer

have you put the correct bulbs in your sidelights?? the correct bulbs have offset pins if they are not offset they will fail, also there is a manual switch which will raise the headlights, its a little white ish round thing as I recall, if you do a search you'll find it on here. :D

Hibernation - do's and don'ts

Finally bitten the bullet an got myself another car, I'm now having to do 40+ miles a day to and from work so thought it was time after 6 years of everyday use that PUS had a bit of a nap :wink: So I'm hoping to find a garage for him to hibernate at least through this winter, any tips on what to do ...

PUS abused by nightime assailant!

PUS had his passenger side window smashed (screwdriver job) early hours of sunday morning :cryhard: , nothing was taken, I think they thought because it was an old car it wouldnt be alarmed, the scarpered when they set off the alarm when the door was opened. SOCO man came but couldnt find any finger...
