    unfortunately i may need to get rid of the biscuit bus soon, shizz circustances.
    i bought the van in resonable condition around 2 years ago in standard panel van mode. iv since spent loads of cash on it running into the thousands.

    full bare metal respray with minor rust issues and welding done. new front panel from the indicators up , californian inport tailgate, aussie panel side loader . its had rust free cali cab doors fitted at some point by a previous owner too. rust free!
    new headlight rims
    new idicators
    new rear lights

    new door seals
    new deluxe window seals
    baby moons
    new pressed plates
    lowered on type2detectives beam adjusters and slam shocks
    3bow roofrack could also be included

    a previous owner had painted the inside with hammerite :wacko: after spending countless hours stripping the outside of the van i left the inside and had it painted over , looks fine and no rust.
    full width westy rock&roll bed
    solid oak flooring
    insulated & ply lined walls covered with thin carpet material
    brand new alpine head unit and speakers
    alfa romeo grey leather seats up front (can come with tombstones)
    removable surfboard table
    the interior is very much diy but still quirky and very useable.

    the van done 4500 miles last summer and the only thing that went was the starter motor!
    quick visit to lowbay and had that sorted in an hour or so. towards the end of the summer the engine started getting lumpy and difficult to start . the engine is still in the bus and still runsbut iv got this engine now ready to get fitted!
    fully rebuilt 1600 cc with scat cam (comes minus the carbs).
    can also come with brand new 4-1 header and mondo phat boy exhaust.

    the only scabby bit of the van left to do is clean up and paint the engine bay.
    the van is now with my local guru & any niggles it may have will be fully sorted. new engine fitted, engine bay painted , fuel tank service.





    video of the van driving today is on my facebook page (james gumbo forsyth)
