    My winter project

    Looks like what has started as a quick tidy up is now turning into a much more in depth restoration...dont they always.
    This is my second T4, my other is a 2003 caravelle 2.5TDi that I have owned for 10 years, and spent far too much on. So now I wanted something new to build, this time in had to be a camper. Buying a newer T5/T6 didn't appeal as I like the older vans (also have a 1969 early bay). So here is project "Stinky" so called by my 2 yr old, this mainly due to the fact that the previous owner must have chain smoked continuously in the van on every single journey.
    Here are a few pics a couple of days into ownership, and after the makeshift interior and carpeted panels have been removed.
    Will try to keep this updated weekly with regular photo's, we all like plenty of those don't we.

    Pain...why do we do this to ourselves, and we still enjoy it!

    After a bit of trim removal and obligatory prodding of suspect areas things begin to come clear that we have a bigger job on.

    Thanks, when you have a new blank canvas, the internet, and all you lots vans my ideas change on a daily basis. I need to focus more, and work out exactly what I need for us personally.

    Haha, sprayed it red! To be honest I think I've been swayed by every colour you could imagine, but now a decision has been finally reached...Team Green we are staying.
