Swampy and Hoppity lay the floor

Well now those seat rails or girders, as I like to call them are removed, it comes to filling the space where they once resided with wood offcuts, glued together by myself and taped down to level the base floor and then we laid a wood laminate floor (very posh) and then a new anthracite coloured carpet...mmm nice, A great platform or blank canvas for Keith to weave his magic ... and me to use my little sweepy brush!

... and those little bits of wood show where the bed comes too.

NEW Interior for the Green Machine

Well here we go... the start of the refit. My dog doesn't seem too impressed...first job we have is to remove the seat rails,...they really are in the way. Don't want to be stubbing my toe on these things.
(VW seats and seat rails for sale!.. probably stick them on ebay)
No work today though, my poor old chum Keith has horrendous tooth ache...get better soon Keith!

Shedding a tear for PUF

Parting is such sweet sorrow...
...Whats wrong?.. you can get emotionally attached to a vw camper you know!

Certainly over the last 8 years there certainly has been ups and downs, but it was time for PUF to move on to pastures new.
It was a good week, collecting my new van on a monday and selling PUF on the following Monday.
Both local, even though both bought and sold on ebay!
Anyway PUF's gone to a good home, a fellow Vdub fan who's previously owned a splitty and I shall still see PUF buzzing around the town, I expect.

Moving on... .I've got my new VW T4 to enjoy now and I've just discovered power steering!...Just have to fit an interior to it!
Heres where this one came from, Great church doors on the back!
(Its not this colour in real life-less turquoise more green - still haven't named him yet any suggestions? - 'the green meanie?')
