Hey folks. I have been dropping comments that I pulled my bus off the road and a few people have said I should start a thread. So here goes. My VW history is a 68 and a 69 lowlights that I was working on. Both were bought when I was nieve and thought that rust work was something the any mug could do. Neither ended up seeing the light of day under my own steam but hopefully the will under someone elses. So I bit the bullet (and searched for some time) and found me a splitty. I only had 20k to spend so I knew I was going to get a few issues but as luck would have it I snapped up my new bus from a DSK member down in Newcastle. When I spoke with him he said it was nice and solid and all the running gear had been replaced with late bay gear (big thing for me with kids). But the paint was pretty tatty. So I flew down with a bag of tools and a wad of cash. Bought it after a 45min test drive and headed back to brissy. 11hours straight with my wifes father as my co-driver saw me get home at 3am. Slept for a few hours then woke up and fitted a baby anchor and went to the 2012 Action Day with the family. This is that morning. and Evie (as she was already named) became part of the family for a year. She was a bit of an ugly duckling though. (very reliable and super fun anyway) so we decided to take her off the road for some quick TLC. And I can tell you, stripping a split is so much easier than a bay. There is not much to them.
