bought yesterday. there seems to be a lot of nasties about for silly money and i thought this one looked an honest bus so went for it. picturrrs.......













as you can see theres a few bits need sorting but it has a long mot (some how? i'll show you later!) so it'll be a bit of a rolling resto affair - we're of to deva in a couple of weeks and planning a few camp sites also so primarily its guna get used!

the one job i did today has also prioritised which bit gets my attention first! extended hinges both sides! me cups touch the doors!

aye lad not too bad!

smoked inicators - check!

postie tails - check!

landy mirrors - check!

t3tuning aero fuel cap - check!

scraped all the wanky surf shit stickers out the rear window -check! LOL

had a wet one at deva which showed up some flaws! the bed is utter shite! looks like a volkswares item but i cant be 100%? think they sell them flat pack then expect monkeys to fit them properly! fought the thing all weekend! bastard! Angry the base and back rest were taken off the microbus and brutally beaten until they fitted! so thats been binned and the frames getting cut...........

the guy told me when i bought the bus that he had fitted a set of minus 70's then took them off again as they kept fouling the arches with the tyres - they're in with the bus! KOOL! me thinks until we looked at what was fitted?! standards on the fronts and his "-70's" on the rear? so ive been driving with a bit of a reverse rake of late..... so sorted that today i'd say they were of an ebay quality red springs and silver gas struts spose you get what you pay for but there not too bad - ive driven worse! but -70's there not -50's at the most............. oh the joys all over again!

centrifugal force (weighted spring) spins up to a certain rpm and the contact is broken by the excess force applied there in. Geek
