    Hello Everybody, I'm Grant, I've been lurking and dreaming about a Kombi for quite a while now and today, after countless false starts, disappointments and frustrations I've gotten myself a nice T3 safari camper.

    Drove it home to the Gong from Lake Macquarie this afternoon in some memorable wind and I was very happy to arrive without misadventure and did a quick loop of Mt Keira and the city beaches before tucking her up for the night.

    I'm hoping it will be a pretty solid base, though has a range of small things and a bit of rust that will need attention, but thanks to the years of reading forum posts I'm fairly confident that I can keep her running and enjoy some adventures.

    Cheers

    Grant

    epic epic van mate.

    Get out to the epic nature of the gong and enjoy the van man.
    Best advice i can give you from a newbie is. Get it mechanically sound. Then get out there. get it dirty and enjoy nature!!!!!

    Don't you just love a cool opening post..... and the responses it generates. And that you would publish a photograph of yourself aligned to a T3..... speaks volumes for your strength of character and slightly masochistic tendencies.:rolleyes:
    Welcome aboard mate !
    Pencil in Easter 2017 for the clubs annual "knees up".
