Westy comes home!

So, Trey got most of the fuel line replaced, except one tube that runs from the fuel filter to the pump- it's 11mm as opposed to 7mm for the rest of it. And no store in the area caries metric sized tube... So we are going to have to figure out somewhere to order some. So, we just had the Westy towed home yesterday. Cost about $70 but it will be worth it. Now we can work on it at our leisure without the stress of getting everything together to work on it, only to find we left something important back at the house.

Today I washed out the interior pretty good (lots of dust and dirt everywhere) and I need to sand/prime a few more spots of the interior... Here's a preview!

lovin' the yellow :)


  1. Hey Laura Ann, Don't know if it will help or not, but 11mm is pretty much the same(very close) as 7/16". You may have better luck looking for it that way. The specific difference is less than a typical human hair. 7/16" = .4375" and 11mm = .4335" Should work just fine if it is only the tube you need and not including threaded fittings.

    Hopefully that helps :)

  2. Thanks! The auto parts store have us a tube that matches up to 10mm so its too small! But I'm going to try to find 7/16 now. Very helpful!
