Are they the ones labelled 52 litre? I use a Really Useful 48 litre box, which has room to spare for the grey waste drain hose. Perhaps your cassette is bigger. Or maybe you bought the 28 litre size.
Interesting. I like the Really Useful box range and I think I have a couple of 48L ones (full of CDs and DVDs). I'll check that for size before buying another box :)

Transferred all of our kit from the old van to our new one having just getting it back from having a service and cam belt change. A piece of mind action.

Murky had it's MOT this afternoon. New Virus protection in place :( Two young lads doing the test, I held back and didn't mention that it was older than them. So sat in the plastic chair provided I tried to observe as well as I could. Very thorough they were too. Though I expect most of it was a history lesson to them. Low and hold it passed without having to hand over the £250 in cash ;)

Fitted a new under tray which had 2/3 missing. Purchased from a crowd in Poland full kit was less than a single genuine piece from Fiat , perfect fit and all fixings were included including the riv nuts or avdels as i know them. Hopefully this will help keep road noise and some of the drafts down. The engine runs cool so not too worried about heating issues especially in bonny Scotland.20200915_085457.jpg20200915_160335.jpg20200915_160306.jpg

Continued the readying for Kelso, bedding loaded, watered up. Looking like good weather, it will be great to meet old friends and perhaps make some new ones.

Took the van in for its first service today. It’s going to cost me €460.33 but I have a €50 voucher so it brings it down a little. (€410.33 or about £360)
Our last vans first service in the UK ( Peugeot in 2016) cost me around £400 and one of their mechanics his job! ( dash cams are very useful!).

A couple of days ago, the hot weather forced me to get the cab Aircon degassed. Completely by chance, I landed at a garage with a polish mechanic who not only knew how to sort out a couple of issues with the Aircon, but also noticed a couple of other issues that other garages seem to have been unable to resolve. So it went back the next day (yesterday) to get the serpentine belt and tensioner replaced.
Back to scraping more rust scabs off the chassis tomorrow, unfortunately.
It's not a nice job, but I suspect that the acid spraying that follows it will be even less nice to do.
