Some of you may know that I had a little bit of a mishap back in September last year. Unfortunately I had a close encounter with a signpost over in Paignton and cause quite a lot of damage to my Mercedes sprinter. The car was fixed and I got it back just after Christmas, however I then discovered that my driving controls were not working properly. It turned out that apart had gone wrong and need to be replaced. Unfortunately, the driving controls I had in the vehicle were obsolete and new parts are no longer available. So it was going to cost the best part of 30 K To have any system fitted. Luckily, the specialist adaption fitter had an old system in stock that was taken out on a car they obtained. Even though it's not an updated version, it was slightly newer than the one I had. So for a fraction of the price I have now had that fitted. So is going to be nice to get back on the road again. I'll just try and avoid signposts :-)

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I'll post some pictures when I get it back, I've got a slightly different driving system for what I have been using, that's quite exciting on its own

I have got my van back now. The driving controls are absolutely awesome, although I've now got a little mini steering wheel that I turn to turn the main steering wheel, instead of a joystick, that will take some getting used to. But I really like it, I'll take some pictures and show you guys at some stage very soon
