The Doka performed flawlessly all weekend - even managing to overtake two - yes TWO trucks during the course of the trip there and back :) Took us 8 hrs on the way down and 9 on the way back but we were all comfortable (so sp...

Re: 196 Split Screen Vans

Our first ever convoy and we loved it!
I was like a kid at xmas as we left Vic Farm on Sunday morning.

Thanks to all for organising the run to Stanford Hall.

Re: Vicky farm - AGM Friday 3rd to Monday 6th May

We always stay till the Monday too as Sunday night in the marquee is a laugh with the quiz and the charity auction (is that going ahead this year as there's a few bits I'll donate if you need them?). There's no way we could do the 300+ mile trip home on the Sunday after Stanford Hall anyway - at the...

Re: HELP!! What's the best way to fit Samba Trim infill??!

Well we did it! We only used a smidge of washing up liquid on the first piece as we thought that would help - but it didn't so we washed it off. Didn't realise it was that bad? Anyway, it took us 7 hours in total :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Finished last night just after midnight. It really sets off the...

Re: HELP!! What's the best way to fit Samba Trim infill??!

Well, 5 and a half hours after we started, we're still at it!
The ali trim is on and , thanks for the tip Wolfie, the infill is going in nicely with the aid of a heat gun.

Not long now................

Re: HELP!! What's the best way to fit Samba Trim infill??!

getting there with the ali bit but the infill is turning into a 'mare!

Do you push it in from the front or feed it in from the end?

This is one way to spend your Saturday night I guess :cheese:

:)

p.s. the ali bit looks good at least

Re: HELP!! What's the best way to fit Samba Trim infill??!

Thanks for the reply.
I guess we'll try and keep it as warm as possible (not easy as it's below zero in the garage!!!)

I'm also wondering how you fit the deluxe trim end pieces on when the trim has to go in over the top?

It's gonna be a loooong night!

HELP!! What's the best way to fit Samba Trim infill??!

After measuring once, then again, then again - we have finally managed to fit the first piece of Samba Trim to my bus (took us an hour before we could muster up the courage to drill my lovely paintwork!!) and it looks nice and straight. Thing is we are really struggling to fit the infill. We have wa...

Awesome news!
We had a blast with the club camping last year.

My mates (also club members) are actually starting their honeymoon at Busfest this year on their way to Devon and Cornwall camping.

We have the tickets purchased already!

Speedo warning light colours/layout help needed please

I am in the process of fitting a "new" (to me) speedo to my 66 but there are no colour filters on the 3 warning lights at the bottom so all 3 are white. So a few questions if I may please.... Can I buy different coloured bulbs instead of adding filters ? (12V conversion has been done) What colour sh...

Re: Vicky farm - AGM Friday 3rd to Monday 6th May

Thanks Susie - this is now our third and final bus. We sold our last split in 2003 and ever since then we have been pining like mad for the right vehicle to come along at the right price and we finally got it this year :) Good things really do come to those who wait. There is no way I'm letting this...

Re: Vicky farm - AGM Friday 3rd to Monday 6th May

I've been a member for over 15 years and this year will be my first VF in a split! :oops:

My first convoy too - I absolutely cannot wait for that bit.
See you there!
