VW T25 Camper main battery upgrade

(or, "Colin gets a power up")... ;)
New Battery into Colin the Camper
Well, there we go, took about 5 minutes to strip out the under powered 44 (resting in shot by the blue box), and pop in the new 96 Heavy (capable of 700 revolutions per minute at -17C!) which is in the slot (correctly sized for the larger battery), the next step up from that is to convert the vehicle to start from the mains (like they do in Scandanavia, believe it or not!)...don't think we are going to have to go that far though, after a bit of coughing (it's been over a week since he last ran) he spluttered into life...thank goodness...hopefully that's the end of all this "not starting" nonsense... ;)

Got to go now, in the middle of cooking roast lamb for dinner...yum... :)

Just from Halfords, it cost about £100...
