Name: Alex Brinnen
Contact Details: alex@faltownskateboards.com
Description: 1972 pannel van/camper call Mia Frankenbus.

It is a working project and it has been my daily driver for the past 2 and half years. It has a Ford 1.8D engine run off of 2 VW Golf radiators and on a type 2, 2litre gear box. I cam cruise on the motorway at 70-80mph and have hit 100mph down a hill all this and I get 45mpg out of her. I have air suspension at the front and KYB's on the rear (to be air baged in the near future).

Body mods: I have welded and smoothed all the seems from the van and I have lowerd each bummer 2". I have completly smoothed the front pannel over and I am prepairing to fit windows and a sun roof in the roof I also have built a custom dashboard which houses the ford escort heater matrix and controles.

I do all the work on my bus my self with my Dad and of course a little help from my friends.

Description: 1972 Bay (Dormobile) undergoing restoration - Idiot bodging tw*t of a previous owner has delayed the process considerably (sure that sounds familiar) it was supposed to be on the road months ago. At least I get to go through it myself and get it right though. Once restored, primered up and fitted with diesel power it'll be my daily driver - can't wait!!!

Nice paint job and camper interior to follow once its in use.

Ride: 1972 Westfalia. So far i (with the help of a friend) have repaired the bottom 6" all round. Replaced the front panel and got rid of the lip at the bottom to make it look smoother. I am concentrating on getting it ready for the mot at the moment. When its passed i'm looking at deleting the high front indicators thinking of changing the rear lights and removing the gutters. I also want to update the brakes lower the suspension and update the gearbox (how i dont know) then i'm on to the engine conversion, again not sure which engine to use.
