Yer still in Falmouth chap Happy .Enjoying life but having to work a bit more then I used to lol! But the Vans be good. I took her off the road a few years ago to do the rear air suspension, rear disc brake conversion and fit turbo to engine. Unfortunately life got a little in the way so she stood still for a while...... but I am just finishing everything off now so hopefully will be back on the road by the end of the summer.

Super bussy with Work and Triathlon training but Life is good so I cant complain Happy

How are you mate?

I'm good ta busy with life as you say. So what you doing for your day job? Faltown still going?

Glad to here you still have the bus what the plan for Air on the back ? I plan to do mine over the winter.. got the air shocks on the front which need some fine tuning as the ride is a bit harsh.. I have some drop spindles to go on and hoping I can get some sort of low with a bit of absorbtion for the bumps and you the air shock to pump it up for off road/speed bumps.

Anyway an update.... front MGF Seats covered

Very nice mate love
Yer Faltown is still going but we got a little recession crunched but I started a new Vinyl business a few years ago and that's going and I'm also Beach Life guarding during the summer for a few days a week now.

Here's a link to FB page. And ofd course if you ever need any vinyl doing let me know Wink

Re Rear suspension, I've welded a cross bar across the top of the gear box and I'm hanging my bags down from that and mounting the bottoms of them to the swing arms with some pretty hefty fabrication. I've also notched the rear chassis by about 3" so hopefully she'll sit nice and low. I helped do a system like this on a fiends bus a few years ago and his is still working great so I'm confident its going to work fine. I'll post some pics up when I get it back together, just gotta do a few bits of MOT welding while I have evrything out of the way Happy
