Postby bluebit » Tue Apr 14, 2015 10:04 pm

Hallo guy's - this is my first post on this forum.
Sorry for my language - but I have not used it in a long time.

In Poland, most people love the VW but I loved my Ford :] so i want to share with you all the work that i have done :)

I bought my westfallia two years ago.
some foto from last year:

In this year :
I have generated top window (glass was cracked around the hinges):
Image
UV-sensitive adhesive
Image
We added strengthening of Plexiglas:
Image

And end result :

I have refreshed spedometer look :)
previous :

now:
Image
I have polished front window, scan speedometer shield -> changed in photoshop -> Print
have removed clock and add my own computer as well :D

It shows :
RPM, voltage of battery 1 and 2, Time, Drive time, Speed from GPS, Distance of route, Course, white (clean) water level ect.

Have replaced original window blind (I don't know how it's called):
Image

added extra LED light with my own driver (on off switch):
Image
(when I press one time it turns on - one LED lath, when I press two times it turns - two LED lath ect.)


have removed whole dashboard and added :
layer of bituminous substances (to be protected against rust),
and extra soundproofing layer.

Image
Image


Last week I have added extra 160W solar panel at the roof - to charge 2 battery in the car :)
Image

This week what i plan to do:
regenerate recently bought Ronal RS alloys
regenerate bridge axle,differential, (dyfer in my language) (I do not know what it's called in english :))

I think that is it (could forget about some things which has been done).

Once again sorry for mistakes hope you enjoyed it ;)

All the best!

Nice to see another Transit enthusiast from Poland :)

Looks like a tidy camper-van. Congratulations!

Wauw! You did an amazing job! An does is help for the noise and temperature to isolate the dashboard and floor so well? I might consider it for my '89 van, though we are now much more busy with removing rust, trying to get a new side window (this is impossible to get :? ), build a upper bed, etc. Much more on the fundamentals, but I'd love to do it so thoroughly as you do!

Oh this is funny!
Your van is originally Dutch? One of the documents mentions my current living town and is written in Dutch! (nothing important though)
