  1. I love my propex, even though I needed it today on my way home and I ran out of gas lol

  2. Think I'd swap my warm bus and put up with the cold and still be smiling big style with a nice scoobie in the back but a propex as well is just greedy.

  4. I picked up an engine from J in Aber, seamed like a top bloke who knows what he is doing. Busy too..

    I expected better.
    Not really sure where the heat goes but it certainly ain't in the cab!

    i thought the fan a tad noisy in yours though
    maybe they run a stat that's a bit low on the opening side to help with engine cooling, this would make the heater a bit poo.

    I guess compared to zero noise in other vans you are right....mine still has no sound deadening either.
     
  9. I did think the heater matrix used by fellows in particular looked a bit small to be honest and although its neat and "hole free" it would be better inside (even noisier though I suppose
     
  10. did you sell your engine then?
    if its not too cheeky to ask how much? for the conversion?
     
  11. Yep J is a top bloke and he was never too busy to answer my continual silly questions prior to the install. If anyone is thinking of going scooby then consider using him coz I would definitely recommend him, it's just a swine to get to from my neck of the woods.

  12. Yep I've probably thanked him a hundred times already but Gylnn is a diamond , helped me out of a real hole more than people know. High five to @Top Banana Racing :hattip::beer:

  13. It's even further if you have to start 90 mins earlier to get to your house 1st!
    I tell you now, if I get to sell some of these SA buses (instead of Mrs TBR keeping them all) I'm gonna have J do me a scooby, AND YOU'RE DRIVING!

    I'm sorely tempted :cool:
     
  17. Me too Bern, having put my 1910cc into Ted ('cos Mrs TBR won't let me sell him) I now have a gap in the Doka, I want to build a 2.4 litre Type 4 but Spring is nearly here so that won't happen until next November!
    I have a rebuilt 6 rib long box doing nowt, a Doka with no engine in it but most of the welding done, the odds are stacking up! Just gotta find a few ££££££'s.
     
  18. Chris, Those pictures should come with a warning, Pass the tissues :)

    Looks Brilliant mate, I'm really pleased you've got it all in and sorted.

    Now, Bring it over this way, and bring a box of Kleenex with ya ;)
