Hello! I've been lurking for a couple of weeks while my 'purchase' has been going through, so thought I'd make the leap, join and introduce myself. I popped my VW cherry purely by accident when I bought a T4 Caravelle to transport my greenlining motorbike. It should have stayed as was, but I caught the 'modding' bug and so the story began. Having got the machanicals out of the way, I went for the full respray last year and this year did a fair bit of interior modding ready for a trip to EuroBugging 5. Trouble was I wasn't aircooled and seeing all those lovely buses got me thinking (dreaming).................never a great idea! So, when someone saw the T4 on my driveway and said 'my nephew has a VW camper he needs to sell' I heard the words and tried to let it drop, but I couldn't. Next time the opportunity arose I asked a few more questions and a few weeks later a visit was organised. No high expectations and cash deposit firmly secreted in my pocket I went for a casual visit, fully expecting an absolute rotter. OK you can all facepalm at this point, because I fell in love before I'd even parked up.............I just shoved the deposit across and said I'd love to buy it. I was so giddy I didn't take any pictures, I did have a cursory look about, but hey, my mates had already said 'it can be welded, don't worry' so I didn't! (They did say afterwards they hadn't meant that quite as literally as I'd taken it, but it was too late by then!!) I took a knowledgeable friend back with me for a visit this week (he was on holiday last time) and I also remembered to take some pictures. He confirmed it was ok (not that it made any difference by then!) and I made a list of immediate bits to buy in advance. As of next weekend I will a hugely proud owner of an aircooled Dub! The only bit anyone is interested in................the photos!! 1972 crossdresser Devon Moonraker ; Type 4 1700.......... Original interior.............awsums, (let's ignore the mildew!!) ................and the fluffy dice are included in the sale..........woohoo!! I've done heaps of researching on here and after getting the engine working and an MOT the roof refurb will be a priority. I will be buying a cover, but I'm anxious not to let everything get ruined with rain water seeing as we're heading rapidly towards winter. There are a few obvious non urgent repairs required, but until I can get underneath and take a proper poke and look, I won't know what other work will be required immediately. Reckon all in all it should be keeping me busy and penniless over winter and for a considerable time to come. However, I hope to be smiling lots in between the swearing stroppy bits!! Thanks for reading!!
