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 :)
