    Thanks lads! The pictures make it look tidier than it really is, the paint job is awful.
    These old things are work in progress so we will get there. I need a fair bit of wood work & finish off building the old caravelle side panels around my r&r bed.
    Itís never ending!!

    You got it there, it never stops. Part of the attraction I think. Wouldn't want some immaculate bought thing you'd be frightened to take anywhere. Its as much the build as the use for me.

    Nail on the head mate.
    A lad in work has just sold his t4 & swapped for a t5 with full top end set up. Heís afraid of using it incase it damages it. Parks it far end of car parks etc.
    Heís selling it in spring & getting a t4 again.
    Mines a life long project, it will never be finished!

    The other thing that happens is you see others and get inspired/side tracked as no two are the same. Ours is quick release seat in back so I can still do vanman stuff. The blue one we are doing will have the dreaded R and R bed. But its all good ,great that you can do to suit yourself.

    Indeed. Iím thinking it could do with being lower after being on here a bit over the weekend.
    Iím also pricing up a welder to finish my seat frames. Itís inspiring & expensive being on just t4ís.

    So this weekend I replaced all the vacuum hoses with Samco hose, very easy job but Iíd noticed the originals had seen better days.
    I managed to get a night to myself Friday so I took the dog, my box of high, bottle of Jamesonís & headed to the coast. Ended up on a nice little beach by Abersoch and had a chilled night just the two of us Rare thing since our kids came along.
    I was home early sat to crack on with fixing my daily (van to the rescue again).
    Iíve started the massive undertaking of fitting my recaro seats, lots of fabrication involved but will be worth it. Iíve had to strip the seats right back & disassemble the bases.
    Van had a wash & polish ready for the week ahead.

    I have always used samco right back to my rs turbo in 1999. Quality hose. I used 5m on the van which is the most Iíve ever used.
    I plan on steam washing the bay tomorrow in work so hopefully will have some cleaner pics in the day light. 🤣

    Samco can be sooooo expensive but cannot recall ever having a split or failure. Buy when there's a deal!

    I bought the vac hose from a motor x shop, cheaper than our local demon tweeks.
    Worked out £12 for 6m
