The Russ Bus

I think my Girls are actually talking about me when they talk about the Silver Fox :)

(Sorry about some of the poor iPhone photos)

Took one ex Lex Auto LWB Panel Van



then did this









Sound deadening, insulation done and my Wife helped with a bit of this



Plylined and carpeted in a car park at work, you can still find small traces of glue, carpet and wiring spread around the places I worked on the van I:

Fitted the mythical full length barn door sill. Yes it exists!



Vist to Cannons Forge and RVTech





Sorted the electrics fitting split charge relay, leisure battery, 240v hookup, fridge and Ikea LED lights.

Let there be Light!





Added some neater storage and tidied the interior












Did a bit of the obvious









Did a bit of this







Unfortunately lost an argument with a large rock that had fallen from a wall near Four Lanes, Kernow



and so got these



then decided that the nippers might need to see out and that the lowering stick be employed



and a retrim for the new window



and finally thought it could do with a clean!!









Bring on our trip to Spain A:I:

Cheers guys. When I bought the wheels from the Tinternet I couldn't see/didn't realise that they stand proud of the wheel....



I am very wary of Kerbs now I:

Don't let your mrs drive it with the wheel spokes sticking out that far, i've learned from experience, I must say I liked the first alloys better than the ones you have on now, why did you change them? ( this is just my opinion though it still looks cool as it is).
also long wheelbase T5's look much better to me than short wheelbase's especially when they have been lowered with alloys etc, if I get rid of my T4 I will deffo be getting a T5 LWB.

Fair one, my Wife has actually banned herself after what she did to my T4 wheels
Still not sure on which look better.
I spanked one of the wheels into a rock and couldn't find a new one to replace it. It's got a flat spot, I've been told it can be fixed but the Mrs was having none of it because of the Nippers being in the van, so I had a Green light for new shoes T:
LWB are defo the way ahead, so much more room than our SWB T4 and no real downsides in my opinion

Cheers for the Chuck Up's :)

Steve, the bars are about half way down the page. Not quite German quality but doing ok so far

http://www.bull-bar.com/catalog/TRANSPORTER_T5.html

A wet sounds good Jimbo, like wise if you find yourself at Culdrose. Can you ever have too many Fellas in a conversation? At least I didn't chuck in a "Listen Up" before hand :D

T4Turners, they are from Silver Screens, not the cheapest but well made and definetly better than some I've seen

http://www.silverscreens.co.uk/

These look good though and a fair bit cheaper
