    Been up once, had clear 360 degree views as far as the eye could see. Beginners luck?
    And forgive me for being pedantic, its Snowdon, not snowdonia - Snowdonia is the whole lot

    I can't believe that people are paying a premium for self converted vans! Am I missing something?

    The cost of transporter vans is another thing...

    Has the world gone mad?

    No. Just full of unskilled people who can't do it themselves

    There are a lot of people about who don't have the fine motor control to do things like this.

    Cack handed is the official term.

    Some people shouldn't be allowed sharp objects or power tools.

    Was there not an article concerning worries about future surgeons struggling with motor control.

    Instead of playing with toys to teach and improve control kids are using tablets and controllers and not developing it as well as they should.?

    Like saying "I'm not mechanically minded" - What they mean is "can't be a....d to have a look and work out how something works.

    I do a fair bit of work for a chap I know, I don’t have to take any of my kit.
    He has a cracking shed full of kit and no idea how to use it!
    Was there a couple of weeks ago building him a work bench in his new shed and putting shelves up.
    Great bloke to work for!

  12. Was looking at bike projects on eBay earlier this evening (can’t help it, it’s a sickness :D) and one being sold as an unfinished project. Some people should have their tools confiscated! :D

    This is a nice project carried out by someone who hadn't done it before; mind you, her father was a big help, I've no doubt. Not that he did the work, but probably steered her right.

    Cant understand buying tools if you no clue how to use or willingness to learn.

    I'd never welded anything when got my first welder. Still wamted to learn tho.

    I do know someone people refer to as *all the gear, no idea". He is one of those experts on everything too. Few of them about unfortunately.

    That said not every project is abandoned cos of skills needed. Cash, health, family issues all happen too. See that on Car S.O.S.

    I not done much with van over winter, partly weather, but health issues too as mentioned before. Out there yday tho as nice day. Only fiddly little stuff, task of seperaitng AA wiring nearly finished thankfully.

    Who would Ashley. But sometimes life happens.

    I've not abandoned mine. Just know where it is on my list of priorities right now.

    I'll get mine finished, but I'm not in a race

    Well put Ste :thumbup: Health is top priority, cos if you're not in good health, any project will be a non starter.

    @Nick DV it was aimed at people who don't have the ability to start & complete the job. Leave it to people who have the ability
