Scotty's scatter cushions aren't stock, there's non-period stuff all over everyone's roof rack and Graham's suspension has been RAISED of all things!

If we're being really picky none of those tatty old Devon interiors came from a VW factory either.

What a shambles ;)
A very valid point raised. You need some authenticity.
All this third party conversion stuff going on....... :-)

Despite the title of the original thread the theme chosen by agpul was stock height buses, so I guess you're in.

You forgot to tell everyone this was a 2 year, home garage resto, all work done by yourself, come on Jim get the before, whilst and after pictures up!
