camper crazy

As promised, more pics of our beauty. I am almost decided on calling her Stella, but change my mind all the time. Maybe Freda. Maybe Emmy. Or maybe Stella.
.
These were taken while we went away - remember she is uncustomised still and needs my loving touch...
.


.
Since taking the photo above we have put on the original style 70's black number plates, which look soooo much better.
.
Also the pic above shows the (vile) blue seat covers inside and the pic below is just with a good old ikea throw covering them. Oh and the (equally VILE) curtains - they need to go. I am also changing the beech floor to walnut or parquet if i can find a vinyl version, and will probably change the cupboard handles too.... hmm what else....



Photos will keep coming as i customise her :)
.
The photos below are from bug jam, a yearly vw event at santa pod - my idea of HEAVEN. Just look at them all....!!

Rat look campers....

Not forgetting the old favourite vw beetle complete with vintage suitcases!

photos by moi :)
