The build thread is here!! I bought my bus last december, but as some of you know i only managed to get it home last week! This was due to cataclysmic engine failure 2 and a half minutes after starting the 400 mile drive home.. which was very frustrating to say the least! But he's here now, (thanks to Top Banana Racing being a total hero! eternally grateful for that!!) and also in february i got a job at an aircooled specialists, (Vdub Resto in Rangeworthy, just for the obligatory shameless plug!) so now the slow resto on the most incredible thing i have ever owned will be a lot easier, and dare i say it, quicker.. maybe.. this is how he looked when i bought him.. Not bad for the bargain price i got him for!! was MOT'd and taxed at the time too. Seller was a bit of a douche, but for the price i couldnt expect much less. Apparently it had a 1600 that ran fine, but turns out its a 1300 out of a beetle, that was also knackered.. bad times! But i managed to pick up an actual 1600 off ebay, (another MASSIVE bargain!!), especially as it came with heat exchangers and a EMPI exhaust, albeit a pretty rotten one.. So happy days there! And last week i started cleaning up a few bits in my lunch breaks at work.. got them in the parts washer first.. then shined them up a bit.. I LIKE SHINY THINGS!! So that was nice times, and will be doing quite a bit more shiny making in the next couple of weeks, so expect to see more of this!
