hello ladies and gentlemen, and youngsters, if you are on here, I am new to the page, and to the type 2 world. at 22 years of age, and numerous type 1 beetles, in various states, i decided it was time to up my game, and buy something that i would love forever, and complete one of my life goals of owning a bay window panel van! now, i'm an oddball, you'll find this out as you meet me, however I can't help but prefer a bay over a split, and after spending months, hunting down a good UK bay panel van, i started to give up hope.. was it because i specifically wanted a bay panel van? so i started looking for normal bays, which would be easier to weld the windows up than to find a panel van, but whilst searching for the perfect base, i came across a guy on eBay, under the name harrisuk1994 who was selling a few various lhd greek import panelvans, which got me thinking, being in greece, its mainly dry, so would surely be the perfect base for my dream, and plus, i dont mind which side of the van i sit to steer so after a month or two, of mailing back and forth i decided on a single van that was shown to me, that looked ace! i could see so much potential. below are the only 9 photo's i recieved... talk about taking a plunge. next was a £200 deposit, for the transporter to be arranged, and then another deposit of £1000, which i'm telling you now, is a scary amount of money for anyone to pass over let alone a 22 year old, who's first time buying his dream vehicle, and importing for the first time! anyways, the money was sent and i had a few pictures recieved back, of it loaded on the transporter! This was at that moment in time, one of the best feelings ever, knowing you actually handed money over to someone you could trust.. or at least trust enough.
