Hi Nick - The Westi looks great! The interior shots show the true beauty of the SO23 conversion - its a credit to you. I look forward to camping with you soon - Watch for Newgale later this summer.

thanks for the kind words, i will try to get some more photos soon. van has been sat in this state for a while now as i have not had a chance to get to my work shop. but the bad camberg trip gave me a swift kick in the arse, and i want to get back to it now, and hopefully :wink: will have it running soon... i still need to get an engine sorted and the usual brake problems with vans that have been sat for a few years.. i dont know how long it has been off the road, but im sure it was in a yard in south carolina under a load of trees for a good 10 years or so.......i will get some more info together and keep the progress reports coming.... and thanks once again for the kind words.................regards....nick :wink: :wink:
