August 2015 VOTM

Post by andy f » Thu Aug 27, 2015 9:43 am

So with a few days left of this balmy sunny hot August ( that'll be me being sarcastic )
Lets see what you got for August's Van Of the Month.

After 7 and a bit years even tho it's not finished I'm putting my 61 in.
Originally from South Africa, I got it in what I thought was a bad state. But then seeing some of the resto's that have gone on over the years I realised it wasn't that bad :roll:

Image

A 61 11 window tintop, Stock height , tried to keep it pretty much stockish. Have put in a later large nut gearbox , Butty's accelerator pedal bit of kit, a anti roll bar ( I know it's all crazy stuff eh ), and then the really sensible bits like a dual brake master cylinder, Firetec in the engine bay and a electric fuel cut off valve.
For the colour, Clare went to B&Q and picked out the colours from the sample cards they have there.

Image

I'm proud to say we have done most of it ourselves, Simon ( Rusting hulk on here ) refurbed the Steering box and Spindles. And obviously we had it sprayed professionally. But I think everything else was done by us.

Image

The engine is a nice simple 1600 SP

Image

Image

I think that is me for starters I'll put some pics of the Interior so far up in a bit :)

Andy
Vote for me and I'll set you free ( obviously that's a lie and I can't really do that )

62 15 Window, full Porsche running gear, Creative air ride system, Porsche 3.0SC tuned to produce about 270bhp, 915 gearbox.

All gone now, only the shell remains from the original guise.

Bit disappointing to only get 15 votes from over 10,000 registered users, for two cracking buses, guess we need to try and do something to increase the use of the forum, shame to lose it.

i think what your doing is great Richard, your getting it fired up and septembers fresh approach certainly seems to be getting a response
and the more people see it, the more they will use it

winners are getting full colour recognition and pics on the back page of the mag every issue from now on too, so should be looking rosie for the future :-)
