The bus had been stripped and painted inside and out and a bespoke panoramic perspex roof ( i was told it was aircraft grade perspex, very thick and strong  ) fitted in place of the sliding steel does look amazing when inside the bus !When the Bus eventually arrived in the UK, it was Customs cleared and all duties and taxes paid. I got to work on the interior, it only had the front seats seats which came from an American Wrangler Jeep .  Plain interior panels were bought and covered in VW Golf fabric and Alcantara fabric, along with the dash. The ceiling panels were were all handmade and covered, the front cabin area will need to be done.  A new blue vinyl floor has been placed over a new ply floor, but neither have been secured in place. My intention was to have a rock and roll bed etc.A new LED strip light was also bought , but this has not been fitted.A complete new carpet set was fitted to the cabin area and above the engine  bay area.Before any of the interior panels were fitted , sound deadening and insulation was fitted to all the panels, including the roof as my intention was to turn the bus into a camper.The front suspension area was partly striped . along with the front brakes . Many items have been replaced with new and the brake calipers detailed and the new seals will need fitting, many of the items are in boxes ready to fit.  The dash clocks will need re fitting, along with the handbrake and cables etcThe complete underside of the bus was cleaned and new underseal applied everywhere.The original fuel injection system was removed and a New Webber progressive carb system fitted .  The engine was tested and ran well, via a fuel can ,  and moved about the driveway in reverse and first gear with no issues. New fuel lines will need to be fitted and the main fuel pipe to the tank re fitted.  A new battery tray had also been fitted while in the USA.This bus has the 6 rib gearbox fitted, considered the strongest stock vw box .Unfortunately the bus has not gone anywhere since it came to the UK, and i lost the space i had to work on it.....the grass is now growing all around it.I have the US Certificate of Tittle, lots of keys , Customs Nova Certificate and some bills.Obviously the VW will need to be towed away  ,( ) can give you quotes to do this .Cash or Bank Transfer before the Bus is removed please.Most of the hard work has been done with this restoration but its a great project for someone.Viewing welcome in Sutton Surrey, any questions 07956-132581
