going To wash mine and try and get some pics up today. pduk how do you create a build thread and put in signature is it hard to do?

Bez👍
Dead easy to do, just start a new thread in the relevant, for example I started mine in the VW T5 Pictures & Videos, then SWB Garage, or you can choose to post in the Team Colour section. To add the link to your signature, same as with writing a post / replay, copy the link address, write what you want as your signature, highlight a word or the whole thing and click the chain links icon next to the smilie icon, new box opens up and displays the words or wording you highlighted, just paste the link where it says URL and then ok. Job done (y)

Thought I'd post a couple of pics after I cleaner her, founds some black trim stuff I didn't know I had so went round and did all step covers and tyres, makes such a difference.
Figured I'd take the photos while all doors etc were open as it looked cool, took me back to when I were a lad and would buy a new 1/18 scale model car, first thing was to open everything up and have a good luck. 😁

On a previous forum I was on, I did some photoshopping work for the Admin / Owner's website, all foc as I just like helping out, anyway his misses was starting up a detailing business so I also did some work for her, he insisted on me picking £50 worth of detailing stuffs, now being a guy that used to use fairy liquid and hot water to wash his car I'm not exactly in the know when it comes to this, so they picked some bits and bobs which was very nice of them. Only just starting to dig through it and came across this.
The new seats look great!
Thanks, I love them! Was a bit of a gamble as I bought them off the bay of e without ever sitting in them, but was over the moon when they were delivered.

Looking great. Love those seats!!
Thanks mate (y)
Loving all the updates, its so addictive right ? lol
I feel the addiction gets worse with every purchase :oops: Still got a few little bits to fit before I return to work on Monday.
Looking spot on Pete! Makes me think I should probably get out and clean my sorry-looking white van too :rolleyes:
Thanks mate, do it! I find it quite therapeutic to clean my van, stick Planet Rock on and just zone out 🤘🤙

So after buying my interior, I've just had to fork out for a new fridge freezer (in the house) as it died, the very same day my stereo (in the van) also kicked the electronic bucket ☠ All this brings with it 2 areas of frustration...1) at a time when the majority of us are on reduced wages I'll have spend a good percentage of it just on upgrades and replacements and b) having been off work for a number of months, why 4 days before I'm back in work do things start breaking 🤯

I had always planned on replacing the stereo and the reversing camera for a more subtle one, but hadn't planned on doing it so soon. Has anyone got any recommendations for head units, Alpine Halo would be nice but a bit costly.

It no worky. Just stopped playing music, it was in an area that has dab signal loss so was used to it stuttering, but then it didn't come back, checked and nothing was working, all the buttons were no lit and power button did nothing = dead as a dodo. I need to check the fuse obviously but it is old and rather rubbish, the touchscreen is more of a push screen.

Sounds like we're both having a bit of a mare at the moment with things breaking (I replied in my thread). So frustrating! Always seems to happen at the most annoying of times.

Alpine is the best. I prefer the X-803D to the Halo, but it is just a matter of taste.

Thanks mate, appreciate that (y) I'm going to just buy new when I decide on what to go for, plus it saves you having to go to a post office, better to stay safe as we're slowly coming out of this.

Murphy's law mate, happens to us all.

I'll have a look see about that one (y)
And alot of money ! :rolleyes:
I've resigned myself to the fact that nothing is cheap when it comes to the van, she has expensive tastes, but I see it as an investment and helping to turn it into a home from home :cool:
