    This could be misconstrued as ' we don't know nuffink' We know everything about everything on here. Fact!

    And if we don't know, we google it and pass it off as our own knowledge!
     
  11. what’s everyone’s thoughts on stripping the campers back , blasting or dipping ?

    Couple of packs of polyabrasive stripping discs and a grinder, most of the rusty bits you'll be cutting out and replacing anyway!
    It ain't a splitty, don't waste money you'll never get back.

  13. Nice ones are going for 15-20k , that value is only gonna go up . Do something right first time and you won’t need to do it again ? I got a price from soda blast Scotland , they said they would blast the whole thing and put in in primer ready to weld for under £1500

  16. im gonna strip all the interior out then I’ll decide what to do . My understanding is that Vw only made them in panel vans and 3rd party company’s did the camper conversions ? Like westifalia and the likes
     
  17. @Terrordales but he left after Bannockburn :D

    VW made panel vans ,all metal, with full bulkhead behind the seats and tin top roof., and microbusses with factory fitted recessed windows, walk through bulk heads and Sun roof holes pressed into the panel.
    They supplied Westfalia with micro busses, everyone else Devon, Dormobile etc got whatever they could get hold of and chopped lumps out of them often with tin openers!
