Finally Home from the Garage

6 03 2011

I picked up Taiga Lily from the garage yesterday and DrJ and I had a few short rides with our new bus. The new engine runs very well. It better be as it has cost a small furtune to buy it and get it installed. There seems to be a last hiccup with the conroller of the new fuel pump. But in principle she is technically/mechanically now in a good enough state that I can take over and start working on the campervan conversion. So next weekend I will start with the work on the interior.

Fun to be in an old VW bus again. I forgot how much attention these cars get. At the petrol station three people asked whether she was for sale. And today at a traffic light someone knocked on the window and asked whether this was a T1 or T2. All with big smiles on their faces.

So glad you got out for a ride. I can’t wait to see what you do to the interior!
