I was happy to see the little steering wheel go .
Well done - looks great!
Must be a fair bit easier to drive with that steering wheel!
Got that right it was like having power steering
Nice job, love the door cards.
How do you get those pattern things on the door cards??
Huge improvement, door cards look fantastic.
Ok a few little extras for the Kombi , mirrors , lenses and a wheel cover.
Looks very different...comfy looking seats and the door cards look much better than the ply ones. Great stuff.
Amazing what a diffence can be made with a bit of trim
A couple more little things for the kombi a under dash shelf and a roofrack
wow what a difference.
very tidy indeed.
passenger seat looks comfy with that can of beam
Ok now i can plug everything in
What a beauty! Sheepskin covers - man I was not a fan at all til I threw some on for roadworthy! Never looking back? Cushy.
That USB thingo is the goods. Nicely done. Very nicely done. Some people call that a resto and whack it on carsales for twice the dollarz!
Mick, I'll be interested to see how you mounted the 3 plug adaptor in your van. Mine is stuffed into a hole a previous owner had cut in the dash of OSI. I'll have to look at something similar for Wanda The White Wedge.Is it wired direct to the cigarette lighter socket or does it plug into the socket? I know nothing of this new fangled electricity.
Yes Don it plugs into the new socket i put in today ,its held there at the moment by blutack till i make a little bracket for it.
I'm interestred in your skylight
Hey Ozzie - I have the normal white fiberglass lids that have been sealed closed to prevent water ingress.
I have been trying to get them replaced with a clear skylight that has a winding mechanism to open/close - but only things close are for caravans/motorhomes and are not the right dimensions
The one in you photo looks just like what i am after - do you have any details
Sorry Ken no details it was on the kombi when i brought it and mine is sealed shut as well,up close it is a rough job but the main thing is it does not leak.
I am looking for other ideas so if i come up with something or see something i will let you know.
A couple of more changes
and some floor boards
You blokes dont miss a thing do you. I didnt notice it. Your bus Looks great by the way.
Nice job Mick. The timber floor really gives the interior a lift...
