After selling my 75 bay Sad I needed another bus to play with and tart up as before.
Was looking at a few options fro T5 transporter, Low light bay's and a few others.
But id seen what ive always wanted sitting in the corner of Gav @ South West Splitz barn.. A small rear hatch splitty!
After some dodgy dealing i put down the deposit and secured my self a new toy!
I only had 1 week to strip out my old bus, and fit out the split in time for our first EAC camping trip and get it MOT'd, Taxed and Insured, but as it was up to normal SWS standard's it cost me £6.50 to get it through an mot test..RESULT!!!!
It was brough over from america a few years ao in to Germany, where it was used as a fire engine crew bus,
Then imported by SWS in to englandthen sold to a chap in newton abbot, then it came back a few years later as the original buyer's situation had changed.
Its was strangly painted red over back by hand which ant staying for sure!!!
Got a few plans for the bus which we have named WOODY
It needs a little bit of panel work but nothing major and is super mint on the underside which is where it counts!
Gonna lower it in the next couple of weeks to improve look and handling.

Latest...
Well as i said, do nothing for ages then all at once..
Aint touched the bus since bristol, then this week, i put in my LCD flip down TV, got a new full on stereo system smacked in it,
Then got my lowering stick out and beat the crap out of it...
Thanks to Rich's old crew cab beam, bolted it straight on, loosened off the adjusters, sat it as low as it would go then tightened them up Twisted Evil
then dropped the back a couple of splines and bolted on my new brm's
Running smart car tyres up front and 165- 65 -15 on the rear, just to keep up my top end speed (like its worth it!!!)
But looks better now, gonna run it as is for the rest of the year and see how it goes over the winter...

Dont look that low in the pic's but looks better in the flesh tongue

Well been busy on me bus or recent, customised my 2 bow and 3 bow roof racks to make a full length rack, which looks cool as.. also did a few other bits, like bolting on the ladder to the van so it dont come off when driving, put the number plate under the front bumper for the clean low look, Put on a new ariel and gave it a wash off, then sunday we went for a cruise down exmouth and broke a few parking laws and got told off becuse off it too, but got some wicked photos of the bus....

Thought i post an update as ive done a few bits on me bus since..

Well, got me a new front US spec towel rail bumper, and repainted the rear one and VW badge to match.
New turbo fat boy muffler, put on a set of mini shocks on the front so ive got good suspension travel, bolted in a monster tachometer on the dash.
Got hold of a set of moon eyes U.S number plate surrounds and plates to match and bolted them on with a nice set of bullet head bolts.Also wired up a hook up for those winter camping trips, and bolted on a shiney steering box protector (thanx again Rich Wink )
added a set of moon eyes valve covers for my wheels.
And finally, put on my new surf label logo on the rear panel for added effect!

Ive also got hold of a Stright axel kit and a big ass 1914 motor, fully tuned, big valves, ported and polished, big cam,twin 40 kadrons, full stainless fully merged exaust system with turbo fat boy.
Managed to get hold of a turbo for it too, but unsure weather to go with that too, it should be quick enough with out it!

Well, got it back and its MUCH better with the straight axle job, im well chuffed.
Ive also done all the brakes front and rear mostly new bit in there, re-done all the oil seals on the gear box ect.
Got my old beam, patched up the 2 small holes, welded in a pair of new adjusters in such a place that it is now a slam beam, bare metal'd it then repainted it in black hammerite.
Not gonna narrow it for now as im a bit skint as ive spent out on a different pair of toys instead....
