    First Day Out

    Was my first day out in my van today.

    Spent about an hour on a car park then was on the roads. I absolutely loved it, cant wait to pass(will be a few months though )

    Was driving back home though, and a tractor turned out of a field and covered my van in mud and cow shite that was flying everywhere off the tires. Looked brilliant on a nice shiny white van, one of the joys of driving I guess?

    Congrats mate. "Welcome to the road." Theres no better feeling than passing your test and getting in YOUR car for a drive.

    (well, scoring the winner in the 90th for United at the Kop End must match it I suppose.)

    Superb stuff Mike. Hope you enjoyed it?

    Good luck with the test bud and keep us informed of how you go. You've got a good excuse to get down to detailing the van now.

    Haha,

    Nothing major, put new dial rings in and blue LED's behind the dash. Put blue LED's in the interior light, changed the door pins, changed my head unit for a 7" DVD player and put xenon bulbs in my headlights.


    No money to do anything major at the moment

    Just been out again.

    Had my first stall

    Stopped at crossroads with traffic lights and the lights changed straight away which i wasnt expecting and rushed off, ended up taking longer

    I have no idea why kids when they are learning to drive go on about stalling. I still do it now occasionally.
