    Bubblegum

    https://imgur.com/a/f3oUgLM

    Starting a thread so I can see how much I change / ruin over time. Few pics showing exactly how I had it.

    I’m really happy with it and it’s a great base few. Few little niggles and things to do but no rush for any of it.

    It’s had a engine transplant, 2.5tdi to a 2.5tdi and also it’s not a vw box, not sure what it is but it doesn’t like going into reverse, it requires a bit of gentle persuasion.

    It’s got a 240v plug in, Ive had it tested and the one 3point plug works fine, the other had a loose earth. I need to strip that out and see what’s going on, I’m useless with electrics though.
    I also want to put a leisure battery in and fit some spotlights and new headlining, that’s probably the first job so expect an how do I do this thread soon.

    Front Fog lights don’t work, 12v sockets don’t work. So it needs some electrical testing. I’ve checked the fuses.

    My little lad named it bubblegum so I guess that’s it’s name now going forward.

    All Input and suggestions welcome

    Very very nice Morgs. More function than fuss, I like its clean lines and the blue is great, fondly reminds me of a Mk1 Escort a mate had when we were learning to drive.

    Thanks both.

    Funnily enough it reminds me of an old ford blue too.

    When i strip the panels to see what’s going on with the wiring I think I’ll carpet the butsvof metal on the inside too around the roof line

    Yeah I worded it wrong I think, it’s just Had a change and not upgraded I meant.

    It’s just a removable cupboard with a little two ring thing on it. Handy as a cupboard at the mo, probably end up taking it out but don’t wany to block the door off permanently, not yet anyway.

    You don’t like lwb then fruitbat?

    I own a lwb and have never jelled with it , I prefer the side profile of a swb.

    Check out the shed

    I wanted a lwb, I thought if I’m having a van I may aslwell get one with a bit more space.

    I prefer the look of them too tbh, look better when low but I’m loving the high everyday easiness of mine at the mo.

    I’ll have a look at your thread now, nice one
