  1. Aircooled no longer. :)

    Just got a message to say everything is completed. :)

    I'll be off on Saturday morning to collect it, and then I'll have my first drive of my scooby-converted bus! :D

    Pictures to follow.....

  11. Right, pictures.

    I got the van home yesterday. Sorry, no "flooring it" video, it was too dark when Malc and I went out in it last night. However we did manage to fly up quite a steep hill without any problems whatsoever. Ask Malc, he'll tell you. ;)

    First, the only external sign that I am going to have that indicates there's a Subaru engine in the back:

    Gotta love a sleeper. :)

    Engine

    It has a 4-into-1 stainless exhaust which makes rather a nice noise if you happen to stray above 3000 rpm >:D

    The radiator is slung underneath, inbetween the chassis rails, just in front of the gearbox.

    Heater matrix mounted underneath the cab floor:

    Cone filter pointed towards the driver's side air vent to get a cold air feed:

    And a nice discreet slash tip exhaust pipe.

    I haven't stopped smiling yet. :)
