Early start today, collected the bus and got it home👍

100 miles for the journey home and it sat at 70mph on the motorway very comfortably at 3k rpm. Which was exactly my spec at the start of all this.
Comfortable motorway cruising in traffic.

Need to crack on with the sound proofing this weekend and all the rest of the goodies that are ready to go on !!

The lovely weather meant I got some time on the bus this afternoon.
Finished installing the 3 point seat belts in the rear. Fitted the Autowares convex side mirrors and the Geekshack engine lid strut.
Then started insulating behind the side panels.
Cleaned, then dodo mat Deadn Pro, then Dodo Thermo Fleece

And finally got the VOLKSWAGEN badge on the back. (Although I lost one of the fixing clips which is most annoying!!)

Evening all,

I have decided to go in a different direction so selling the pop top I have just restored!:

I'll also be selling the pop top and fibreglass surround base that's currently on the bus.

Oh wow, you’ve just put in all that work!
What direction are you planning now if you’re selling both pop tops?
I know!
Not 100% sure yet - am exploring the different sleeping options and how we’re going to use it as a family.
All good problems! Just want to pass on my hard work for someone else to install and make their own. Which is why (I think) I’ve priced it realistically 👍
