I'm Very new here and my passion (100%) for our lovely '73 Westfalia Massively out weighs my expertise (0%) so I'm running on enthusiasm and advise from you clever people A bit of back story... Pearl was originally from Trinity, Jersey, I know this because I have the VERY RAD original ownership papers. Then there is a massive grey area and the next owner We know of was a young guy who drove her all the way around this fine country only to Pull into the Main Street of ALBANY WA and be stopped by the Law. They went over the old girl and picked her apart and slapped a Yellow sticker on her. The list of repairs were so extensive that he couldn't afford to get her back on the road in the required time frame, and so she sat in a paddock next to a chicken house serving as a half way house for Rats. 18 months of decay later we saved her for a bargain price. Well maybe not but you can't put a price on love our priority is to get her licenced so we can enjoy her. So this is where we are at so far... We put old Pearl over the pits to get a realistic idea of what we where in for. We cleaned out about half of the dirt and animal hair, and poo. Pulled out the cabnitry that was water and rodent damaged. I just replaced the window winders (one thing on the list that I can do myself) I chuck up some photos any input or advice would be well received!!
