    So van die os op die jas . Ek kon nog nie werklik op die net finaliteit op die vraag gekry nie. Weet jy dalk of dit moontlik is om 'n derde ry sitplekke in bussie soos joune te sit sonder te veel gate sny en versterkings insit ens, ens? Sal seker bietjie donker wees om daar saam te ry, maar mens kan darem sit :-)

    Very nice bus you have there. I recently bought a 2008 Beach4motion. Still getting to know it, nice power and coming from a 95 Defender, veryluxury. The road noise from the back bothers me a bit but ill get use to it. Thefuel consumption is about the same, if not a tad heavier than the Defender.Over all, very nice and I think I can grow very fond of it. Does anybody knowwhere I can get some brackets for an Eezi Awn gazebo? The ones that fit intothe roof gutter.

    Ja definitief, maar jy sal moet strip om by die plekke uit te kom, ek praat van diesel tenk afhaal ens, die gate vir die agterste ry sitplekke moet deur die vloer ingesit word om dit volgens spesifikasie te kan doen, en dan sal jy nog die papierwerk by die verkeersafdeling ook moet probeer verander.

    Welcome to the Swish-bang club (the sound that the side door make when you close it, people love it when you close the door at 3 in the morning at a camp site. I think the Beach has the t-slot tracks on the roof and not the holes, then it should be easy to get the correct bracket

    Thank you for the welcome. Yep, it is the t-slot tracks. I have found the brackets at one of the out-door fitment centres but at around R400 per bracket I donít think so. And I am worried about the twisting motion on the channel with the weight of the awning on one side. I might try to manufacture something.Hennie

    Growing up with a brood kombi, we learnt the trick is to slide the door almost all the way forward and then give it a solid inward shove at the back to close it. That way you can slide it slower and quieter.

    Yep grew up with the David Kramer model, white and red, 1st watercooled ones, close the door slowly and just gently push the handle to close (unless all the windows are closed, cause the Germans know how to seal a vehicle)

    Looking Good!

    I see you also blacked out the VW logo. That is next on my list as well. Did you just spray it while on the grill or did you remove it?

    Stupid clips that tend to break when you remove it, but yes stripped the whole grill to get the badge out, sprayed with Rustoleum Plasticote

    Ekt van die huis af gewerk in die tyd en hope ander huis take gedoen so voel of ek nou weer voor is. Maak more weer deure oop al was dit nie tegnies nodig om toe te gemaak het nie.

    Sterkte daar. Hoop jy kan vinnig weer aan die gang kom.

    So begin die selfde storie van voor af. Het Woensdag die een gerky en al klaar besig om hom te verander soos ek hom wil hÍ en gebruik.
    Gelukkig het die vorige eienaar klaar 'n paar goed al gedoen soos 'n dual battery onder die voor sitplek , Alu-Cab Shadow Awn en Frontrunner dakrak.
    Hulle het seker 'n drawer system ingehad maar die installasie was om die mooiste te sÍ 'n backyard job. So vandag het ek maar alles uitgehaal en begin skoonmaak van 'n kant af. Ek kan nie dink hulle voor gate in 'n nuwe voertuig sonder om eers die gate skoon te maak of die vylsels op te tel nie . Maar nou ja ...Attachment 633909Attachment 633910Attachment 633911Attachment 633912Attachment 633913Attachment 633914Click image for larger version.

    Baie geluk, baie netjies!

    Hou ons op hoogte asb. Wat maak daardie dakrak en awning met jou brandstof verbruik?

    Ek gaan dophou, kan vergelyk met my ander bus. Ek gebruik die fuelly App, so dit sal mettertyd wys in my signature. Ek moet sÍ bo 120 raas die spul maar lekker. Ek is gewoond aan 'n dakrak wat verder agtertoe sot so jy hoor nie nie windgeraas so erg nie
