Got to start getting the donor engine and gubbings out next weekend while the boss does a search and capture mission around the yard for anything else Vdub that takes her fancy.Its going to be a long one as the van will stay on the road till the last possible minute. Once I have my head round the wiring i'll be torn as to whether to get it in and running or do a full rebuild on the motor first. Activ asked about 6 speed boxes but viewing Regs thread on the subject i'll stick to 5 speed at least I can count that high. If i'd gone for the J reg van there would have been 12 months work to get it to the stage that S49 is at now including removing the camper conversion it already had. Much more sense to do the van I already have. I can gradually put the 700 quid the van was going to cost into the motor without leaving myself short and Molly is treating me to the 1.8 for xmas. But she did say once I have it all worked out if we dropped on a Mark 2 golf it could all go in that instead. Does she know something I don't?
    If you go 1.8T - the six speed is much easier. The shorter four pot gives more room.
