Hi, I'm another newbie to the forum although I have been doing some investigation on the forum before actually registering I:

After 10 years of not owning a VW (previously owned - 1 x Beetle, 2 x Variant, 2 x Mk I Golf GLS and 1 x Mk II Golf GTI) my wife agreed to us getting rid of the car and getting a T4. I'm over the moon A:

We've had the van 4 weeks and I've already lost untold hours sat on the internet looking stuff up and tinkering!

The van - it's an ex AA van 2.5tdi SWB, 110K, cam belt just changed, 1 owner since the AA. Another sunshine bus on the road!

I've already had all the AA wiring and lights removed, lowered it, boarded and carpeted the back (work done by MADWorkshop in Bristol) and had some 6 x 9s added as well as replacement Alpines in the front. Oh and changed the indicators on the front and added some wind deflectors to the windows. Just waiting for new carpets for the cab to be delivered and a loading bay mat for the back (new carpets arrived as I'm typing this!). I've fitted some top quality underlay in preparation for added insulation/sound proofing.

As soon as I can sort out this Photobucket thingy, I'll post some before and after pics.

Off to the parcel office to collect another parcel (!) ..... hopefully it's my gear stick extension and gear knob A:
