"feck" hell! photobucket works again?! This is my lovely view every time i walk up my drive. ive been enjoying the blissful issue free couple of years with the van, especially the last year where ive been ripping apart the golf. Thankfully thats mostly done now, so they both vie for my attention in regards to what one gets a drive....
1st bit of work i've done on the van in a while is fit a active sub under the front seat, fits and works pefectly!
Going back in time, summers hols involved the normal buckaroo set up :D
Greatly helped by the new underslung water tank!
Anyway, hopefully i can start posting again now! The last year has been all golf stuff anyway..

You need to galvanise then PPC - PPC on its own is insufficient.

thanks everyone, amazing how time flys and you get out of the habit of posting. Also running out of things to do! :lol: hence the Golf country....
But i have some eber shenanigans to be getting on with, plus some battery stuff.
All is good though! The cooler set up is performing very well DSM , very good temps, and more importantly everyone is jealous when they see it :lol:
As for the wheels, they do have some bits of rust showing through.. not a lot though. I sandblasted and just got them painted. Not a big fan of powdercoating because it tends to peel off

thought id also inc my two favourite recent pics, Very hi up in the Dolomites and an amazing place to sleep!

PPC - Polyester Powder Coating

The 16" OEM Syncro steel wheels don't flex - they're super heavy duty.
