    Hi all,
    Finally found time to put thumb to phone after lurking in the background of this fabulous forum.
    The story so far:
    After becoming a vw tragic many decades ago have owned current 74 camper for around 20 yrs & has been used in many guises from daily drive, work bus,holiday camper to driveway ornament for the last several years.
    Decided it was time to give the old girl some well deserved love & attention but after finding it increasingly difficult to source anyone locally with skills or interest to carry out work, decided to tool up & get my hands greasy.
    Currently have her up & running again after picking up lots of excellent info from forum.
    Planning a full resto over coming years but just enjoying kombiing ( is that a word ? ) for now.

    Cheers Shane.

    Thanks all for a warm welcome. Might take your advice David & start a resto thread so I can start picking members brains, because I have lots of questions.:confused:
