Cracked Windscreen

Before we drove away with our new acquisition, Ian noticed the crack across the corner of the windscreen. The vendor wasn't having any of it when I tried to get her to drop some pounds off the price. Muggins me still went for it.

Back in Wivenhoe, I called up Andy from Colchester Motorglass. Andy is a top chap who had previously helped me out with the rubber seals around the Boat For My Potplants.

I liked his attitude back then, and I liked it even more now. It was 'yes', 'it can be done' and 'it shouldn't be a problem'. Musical words to my ears.

Luckily the screen is flat glass, so it was simply a matter of him taking measurements, making templates of the corners and waiting for him to turn up with the new screen. I think he secretly liked the challenge. So much more interesting than replacing windscreens for Ford Fiestas all day long.

A couple of hours later, and Tallulah The T-Reg Motorhome was sporting a shiny new front window. Excellent.

Now Churchill the nodding dog would be able to sit on the dashboard in comfort.
