Swampcoolers!!

Post by kilgore »

Looking for pics of swampcoolers fitted to buses! need to see how they fit ideally anyone know? Ive seen them on bugs just curious how you make it work on a split with sliding glass!

also has anyone got any pics of the french panel van that i think was knocking around last summer. On air ride with crazy pointed steering wheel. Blue i think.

cheers

not that one dude i think it was much more shiny! more chrome perhaps? metallic blue possibly? had a crazy skull shifter and a sun visor, think it might have been even featured in volksworld!

just after posting i was pretty sure you had fitted a cooler too! is that the only way? one piece?
