Well its like this.


The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round, the wheels on the bus go round and round, all day long!! apart from when they are not on it as they are being refurbished by a dodgy welsh bloke called clive with a glass eye and a strange smell of dead sheep about him!!

Ah, you guys! Cheers for the compliments, it appreciated after the work I've ended up doing this winter... None of it was planned I can tell you that much... If I've learnt anything about VW's in the last six months it's that they are simple enough to 'have a go' and if you get stuck then it's great to have a bunch of knowledgable and friendly clubmates right behind you.... And Gunge!

Cheers all... I'm signed up for Bristol Volkfest, so fingers crossed for the MOT this saturday and I'll see you there all being well!

(My name is indeed Carl, and I are be mostly from Wiltshire!!! The only thing Welsh about me is my address!!!!)

The seatbelts pictured earlier are now fitted! Both sides have been changed to retracting intertia belts - the drivers side is a T2 Belt, the passenger side is a T4 belt - both have exactly the same mountings, but the T4 is 3.8m long compared to 2,7 for the T2 - I needed the extra length to go round the baby seat... (sorry for the shit pictures.. they were taken on my iphone in poor light!)
