Hi all at Earlybay.com.

Spent ages searching the W.W.W. for the perfect Bus for me and my family before I Found 'Our Bus' on Ebay of all places, after not hitting reserve I contacted the seller and agreed to go down to Pill in Bristol to see a beautiful 1070 White Westfalia Campmobile that was named 'Myvanway'.
Imported from U.S in 2008 it came with nealy all of her extras and with alot of history and recipes!! :D
as soon as i got to Bristol I noticed that I was in a large Volkswagon community with almost everyone have some sort of classic VDub on there drive!!

Hope you like the pics of our van 'Myvanway' :D




Original Number plate from U.S.A. Hammock & stool too!! :D Original mozzy net!!?? Maybe!! even found a flare in the breakdown recovery kit as well as full too kit & jack. :D
Note how the DVLA have kept some of the digits on her UK Plates!! And she had an OG V.W.O.A roofrack.....yippie!! :D

Some parts of the interior were very well worn but her she has been used daily since 1969!! ;)
I only replaced the parts of the interior that I knew were going to get hammered, I have kept it all in air tight bags in the garage,
including the original vinyl flooring. :D
We replaced one part of the seat with new foam purchased from a caravan interior company, to exact dimensions of original.
Some would say leave it alone but this is also an investment..... Yer!!

I set to work on the door cards carfully peeling the original skins off the well tired hard board!! :|
I replaced both with 3mm exterior ply and panel clips from heritage, and reskined using original panel skins....
to keep it OG!! ;)

to put a space in between each line of code, just hit RETURN at the end of each [/IMG] tag and put an empty line between each line of code in the post.

By pasting your image on the cursor & putting in between spaces by pressing the enter key/ down space it's kinda hard to put in writing :lol: you'll just keep having to have a play :lol:
You'll get used to it, anyway we can see them just that their all over the place. :lol:
