I get my 69 high roof camper tomorrow , I have a T25 camper but I think the T2 will be special as it has its own character.
It is complete but needs work so I might have to ask you and others for some assistance and advice on where to get spares and how to do some restoration etc.
This is a perfect example of the enjoyment of owning and working on your own project and it must have been very rewarding for all involved.
Great job.
Hi Terry, that is exiting stuff! Sweet dreams tonight of your new bus. For me this bus went from a temporary solution to a keeper. I'm also busy with a 1972 Westfalia which is now 4 years in the making. My family is so attached to "Blommie" they told me in no uncertain terms, I can sell the other bus once I'm done but I am NOT allowed to sell this bus.
Once you have the bus, take lots of pictures and start a project thread. It's always inspiring to see what other folks do with these busses.
