In our last blog we ended with the roof cut out in preparation for the Samba conversion, this week we get straight into the detail of how it was all fitted!
After some serious elbow grease getting the body in primer we decided to convert the camper to a Samba, what were we thinking.....
Moving forward with the Splitscreen Camper restoration, we started on the bodywork giving it the love and attention it deserved, so off we went all (Welding) guns blazing... see what i did there? not impressed? well i thought it was quite clever!
We were all feeling good about agreeing a good solid plan which we could crack-on with. But, as with all the best laid plans, things were about to change dramatically. For the good? We are all about to find out.
We now had a good idea of the overall condition of the Splitty. Our focus now was agreeing a specification. This would give the project a strong sense of direction and purpose. Something we sorely needed now.
“What the hell is that?!” - we detected our business Partner, Neil, whose responsibility was getting what we purchased back on the road wasn’t happy. If we weren’t 100% sure about that, he removed all doubt as he turned away and walked back across the yard where our recovery truck was dropping off the Splitty to his office. Hmmm, we both thought. What to do now? Keep quiet, unload the truck and he’ll calm down.
