A big change of plan for the cooling
205 days to go !

The larger canvas bags hold most of our spares and tools, and I found an old medium size soft cooler bag which fits perfectly in the remaining space, and can be filled with anything we want. There is still some room on top and around the sides of the boot to store other items like clothes etc. Obviously nothing will be final until we have everything available, but I think we are now moving in a better direction that previously.
Oils and liquids also need storage, and now the fuel pumps have been moved higher, the wells on either side of the boot will provide a good location, one thing I learned from a couple of other participants was that liquid storage containers require excellent protective packaging to prevent them rubbing together and eventually puncturing. Oil and water mixed in the boot of a car make a horrible mess !!

I am now off to the UK to attend the ERA briefing for the rally, so by the time I return in 2 weeks time, all these items will be completed and I can install them and ensure they all work satisfactorily.
