When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

Sounds like the wagon is in pretty good shape. You never know you might now be considered “converted” to own more EK’s?

Will it make the trip East in June to S.A?

Done all I am going to do to this for now - replaced some of the Bailey channel to stop some of the rattles , vacuumed all the crap out of the doors while I was at it and gave the door trims a scrub. Put a new speedo cable in it and painted the rims and hubcaps. Image

Now you’re getting carried away blacky. Eks are taking over your obsession. It is insidious.
