Hello,
Thought it was about time i said hi introduced myself and my van. Just starting using the site and hoping to pick up some useful tips and info as im new to Syncro life and i have all but no mechanical experience. I finally made the move to buy a Syncro after wanting one for the past 10 years and im totally loving it :)

I m based in Norfolk, haven't seen to many Syncro about this way but if anyone on heres from Norfolk or knows of anyone would be great to meet up. Shes had some work done by the previous owner, but the vans in need on some TLC and ive been hard at it so far putting things right. Had a load of mechnaical work done, a new popup roof is going on westy style (shes there at the mo) and a respray is booked middle of June. Really looking forward to that as paint works not the best. Well heres the spec at the mo and some pics. Welcome and help, suggestions advice im new to Syncro life but hooked well and truley

16" ex Nato radio van
1.9td 1997 golf diesel engine
Decoupler
adrian talbot gearbox work done
front and rear discs

came with a poor pop up roof
camper interior rock and roll bed new front seats, electrics etc.
Ive removed all the inside now after testing her out to start work on sound deading and insulation and begin work on electrics, solar and new interior. Me and the mrs have taken her out for some camping trips all ready, loads of fun, she drives really well, cant wait to get her all kitted out.

Cheers guys
:)
