My '76 Kombi with 2L motor

I just bought this Kombi this morning and plan to do a basic camper conversion with rock 'n roll bed, a respray in the same colour and of course an overhaul of the steering components and brake system...After looking at around 8 kombi's over the past two months this is the first one I found to be worth buying, with minimal rust and mechanically not too bad.

Dayum Derek, are you trying to corner the market on all available buses? :hangloose: It's a nice looking bus.

Just had the bus taken through roadworthy - it's going to cost me the princely sum of R 1 500 for the rear brakes to be redone and a few bulbs to be replaced...
