  1. received_2164111310524716.jpeg Well after being in the T25 wilderness We are back with another late bay. Our 76 westy berlin from Minnesota.

    After previously owning our 79 westy berlin and then moving onto the T25 our next bus had to be another berlin.

    After 9 months of looking we found this by chance on preloved

  4. It's had 2 owners in the UK. The importer and the couple we bought it from. It's been here since 2011.

    Its 75% og paint. Its had some work. Just needd some bodywork needed behind the rear bumper as its a bit crusty.

    The interior is pretty mint. But was missing the flip down part of the bed, the rear table and brackets and dash table.

    Plans are to paint the pop top and replace what's left of the original canvas. Ive also bought an NLAVW rear table and found an og dash table. Also bought some sounds to fit

    Lastly the gearbox had issues so that's being sent off for a refurb

  5. First things first.....a good clean, G3 on all the faded original paint. Then a full machine polish and buff 20180914_192021.jpg
  6. After a good 8 hours of cleaning and polishing... 20180916_131524.jpg
  7. Once the outside was looking good I fitted our repro rear table. Full kit needed as we didn't have any brackets either.

    Interior is pretty mint. Also has the original curtains too.

  8. 20180922_133030.jpg As the bed part was missing I bought a new set of repro roof bed hinges from NLAVW. I had the cushion part. So just needed to make the base and add poppers etc

  10. Had to give the vents a quick blast of black paint. Interior laminate door panels etc are in poor condition and have been painted over. So ive a new set to fit from NLAVW 20180916_180944.jpg 20180916_180930.jpg
