wankers Angry

where was it parked? (i.e. on the drive, car park, etc?)

i'm going to paint the backs of my light bowls in flouro pink so at least if they get pinched they'll be difficult to sell on / easily recognisable.

What pisses me off most of all is that the items can only be sold on to another enthusiast. What sort of a tosser would buy such stuff without first checking its provenance.
I can never secide which asshole is the worst; the cnut that steals gear or the fcuker that buys it from him.

Is your van alarmed? I no this won't stop them stealing parts but it can help, fit security screws to mirrors and front indicators ( I no it doesn't stop people taking then but it could take them longer and more chance of someone catching the scummy twats)...fit pin switch on top grill to trigger alarm ( and lower grill for piece of mind), I'd even been thinking of wiring my mirrors into the alarm to activate it if the wires are cut. Just out of interest did they cut the wiring to the mirrors, I certainly wouldn't buy any with the wiring cut would have stolen wrote all over them!

Gutted for you mate. Similar thing happened to a Westy in Hove round the corner from me. They took his rear blenders smoked rear lights and SA bottom grill. Just chopped all the light cluster wires off, they were absolute arseholes. Cost him a fair amount to have rewired and replaced. If you replace go for anti theft screws from Brickwerks. I'm also considering getting a tracker put in mine incase they take the whole thing. It seems this is happening quite a bit in the South East. Cunts, cunts, cunts.
My kids would be so upset if our van was messed with. Don't sell and let them beat you. Fix it up and stand proud.

I've been on eBay and brought some cameras so get them up the weekend the police are useless I washed the van on Monday and polished it then 24 hours later this happend the police said that they could not take fingerprints because if a drunk had fallen against it his finger prints would be on it so what they r saying is people might of touched it and that they would be a suspect wankers I live in a bungalow with loads of oaps living around me and no one comes this way unless u live here or about to nick something is it me or are the police not worth the money that they are paid when they can't be arsed to come out or even a phone call to say that they can't be arsed anyway enough said just don't think it won't happen to u coz it will thanks for all the kind words fellas c ya

There is nowt to be said that can bring back your stuff. Let it be a lesson to us all to be vigilant. My van is outside right now. I love my double glazing, keeps me warm, but it also keeps out the noise of the thieving bastards taking our hard earned. All the tips are welcome to us all. Keep it safe.
It's all rust in the end....

Maybe so but it's also brand new,never been fitted and was previously advertised on ebay before the one on the Westy was stolen.

Bastards !!!
I do hope you find the bastards as after all our hard work getting our vans and buses up together to have some jealous low life steal bits or the vehicle complete makes you feel sick
I guess lucky they didn't get your VW complete !! Another warming to us all to take care
Nice bus anyway
