    Not bad, sort the bumper alignment out though luv - the colour goes with your driving style.

    It has plenty of fettling to be done, the bumper needs to come off again once I find a n/s wing, but it can be driven, and thats the main thing

    Less than half the cost of what I sold my 2007 Shuttle for up to now

    Had to mate, would have done it quicker if I didnt have to wait for parts and then some ebay scumbag sent me a rusty passenger wing when it was supposed to be mint!

    As soon as I insured it its maiden voyage was to Wickes for 8x 8x4 sheets

    I'm just jealous - waiting for parts is a nice excuse for me

    wheres that from Al? co-part?

    funnily enough my shuttle is up for sale too and ive just bought another...

    When it arrived it had a full eberspacher d2 diesel heater and leisure battery/240v set up


    bitdi 4 motion, thinking of putting a caravelle interior in it. Just found one on ebay and was about to pay for it, but checked his name out first 'trans4mer uk ltd' and he doesnt have a very good rep, so offered him a deposit and i'll pay the remainder when i collect (in 2 weeks) and wasn't happy with it so I'll leave him to it.

    bonus on the heater and electrics what are you planning on doing with it? Personally I wouldnt bother, plus half of it wont fit with a single slider!

    Dont waste you money mate! Nothing is that cheap (not like it was 10-15 years ago), also copart are sailing close to keeping on the right side of trading standards. Every time they make a comment on they FB page they get ripped a new arsole from disgruntled customers because of the shit they now sell. they deliberately hide problems, also once upon a time they only used to sell for insurance companies, now they are selling lots of shit for all kinds of shady people/traders who dump cars with known problems that are not mentioned in the sale!

    I have bought 100's from them over the years and be stung many times! if your buying loads its ok as you take the rough with the smooth! But one off buys are a lottery.

    Also it used to be exclusive to the trade, now they let any tom dick or harry join, just like yourself, which pushes prices through the roof.

    Just looked at that Caddy, that will have flitch and chassis damage, airbags and seatbelts have fired. The cost of repairing that would cost you more than buying a used one from vw. That one is scrap

    Half of what won't fit all?

    Just the caravelle seats, some off-road tyres, maybe a bull bar too

    What's the plans with this one? Just a RnR bed, or kitchen pod too?
