Sweet Pea Re-Fit

Have a look at the work we are doing on sweet-pea. We are doing a re-fit. Made new door cards, new units.

New Camera

Norio took some pictures of cappuccino, with my new camera eos 550d. Even I can take good photos now it’s very impressive. I have some of the work we are doing on sweet pea, and the work going on in the unit. These Heroes are getting smoother by the day with all the work the team in the garage are doing.

If anyone knows the replacement technology for electro arc welding for vinyl let me know

This is my first attempt at blogging so we will have to see how this goes and be kind.

I have been lucky enough to get a fleet of beautiful VW campervan classics that I got restored with the help of my friends. It's not easy to do this. It takes a lot of time and energy, and the pricetag at the end is substantial, believe me, I have been reminded of this fact a dozen of times.

Now I'm at a stage where I can rest assured that these beauties are reliable, safe and comfortable, so I now started this rental service and, as is the campervan spirit, I'm sharing the love and fun to other campers that want the joy of taking these babies out camping without the high pricetag of ownership. People need to get the fun, and I get to have fun providing that service, so we're all happy and the VW campervan camping experience grows every time.

Here are my beauties, visit their blog posts and I'm sure you will fall in love with at least one of them :)

I've also started a JustKampers profile, so make sure you visit that one for other technical info.

Hartley's ID

Hartley is waiting to be renovated and will change colour so give us your suggestions on what colour you would like and we will pick the highest rated!!!

He has been stuck in the Potteries district for many a year and wants to get his feet out of the clay….

He is hoping Handy Andy can get his welder out on her in September 2009 but sure enough, she wants to be out and about sooner.

Hartley will have his interior re-installed a lovely Devon that sleeps 4.

Dauphine's ID

DAUPHINE – She is a Beauty. Splitty style from the 1960’s and is totally original and from California. She has all modern suspension and disk brakes on the front and back. Dauphine has been professionally converted to Right Hand Drive. Dauphine feels like she can cope with the modern roads much better now.

She has been buried in saddleworth moors for many a year now not open to the light or any adventures.

Dauphine is being taken from her sleepy hollow this Friday to Burnley were little Andy the tiny engine wizard will produce his magic and give her a new MOT and spruce up since she only needs a few cobwebs removed since her conversions are recent.

Noah's ID

NOAH – 1976 Noah has a timewarp interior from 1976, strong 2 litre engine and is lovely to drive and has all the refinements. NOAH has spent the last 6 years down near Dartmoor and is now venturing north to Cheshire this Thursday 30th July 2009.

He can’t wait since he’s fed up of being used occasionally by his previous owner and would love to have the Outback adventures he had in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.

Now at the tail end of the noughties he will be living his dream – “Born Free!!!”
