    Hi All,

    My husband and I are new members who have been restoring a 73 camper for over 12 months, three Saturdays each month. We have removed a lot of rust, replaced the floor, cleaned underneath (that was hard work) and now nearing the end of the bodywork.

    We will hopefully not be too painful but this is our first resto and are we will need your advice moving forward.

    We are breaking some hearts and not going with the traditional air-cooled motor and putting an EJ25 Subaru water-cooled motor. Thanks (John Sherman) Volks Conversions for the conversion kit. Motors basically ready.

    We live on the Gold Coast and it would be great if someone has the time one Saturday to call by with their Kombi so we can have a look at the body and setup. It will help us to visualize some of the aspects we are struggling with and be great to talk shop.

    Anyway, thanks and we look forward to any advice you can all share.

    Maggie, welcome to the party that never ends :D

    See your picture did not load up .... it has to be under 1MB in size and anything under 500kb would be ideal. It also depends on what you are posting from ie. Computer Windows or Mac, tablet or phone and what you have taken the photo with.
    Use the "Upload a file" button/icon in the lower right corner and go from there ;)

    g’day and welcome

    your bus - don’t worry what gets broken.
    The fact you are getting another bus on the road rust free is the main issue

    Big job you have taken on. Forum is a great source of information and assistance. Don't be embarrassed, all questions are of interest.
    Look forward to your progress reports.
