The Items listed below cover the repair and maintenance of the van at home and in use.
We are slowly putting together a toolkit and a selection of spare parts for the van, some of the items I would expect to be carried all the time, others occasionally depending on the intended trip, the remaining items would only be used at home for planned jobs.
The list is far from complete as what we need and which category the items belong in, is still evolving as we learn more about the van.
Items in “Black” will probably be taken on all trips.
Items in “mauve” need to be changed, replaced, or we need more.
Items in “Green” are almost completed
I will add links to reviews and more information about individual items asap.
