Fuck me, that was 'restored' late 80's/early 90's then!!

affraid

It seems the standard of work people put into restos these days are of an infinately higher expectation.
Glad to see you are saving a Big though bud, I reckon 'Fat Chicks' are the next Big Thing.

Old School Cal Looks are cool, I quite like late model proper Lookers....

My new storage area
[img]
At first the frame head didnt look to bad
[/img]
then we too k off the beam.gearbox ect
[img]
We had to cut out this bit it looked like it needed investigating
[/img]
to discover
[img]
[/img]
So i off to get some new bits.well actualy lots of new bits.
i have a massive pile of work carried out by the last 2 previous owners.carried out by so called vw profesionals in Poole dorset.all i can say is if that is the standard of work people pays hundreds for.then im in the wrong game.

Mot was carried out by Pottery Services in Parkstone the year before and again this year...this bug should have been condemd.(sorry i cant spell.)
Still never mind i suppose you should expect the worst with a bug.then things can only get better.and there cant be any more suprises as weve stripped the guts out of him now.all ready for a good wire wheeling.inside and out.will start work on the chassis over the next weekend.and im trying to get next week out of work.to give us a headstart.
