Best buy so far

I managed to catch up with an old mate last month - Dave Lowe. Top bloke and he know's his VW's as he's been restoring them for years. Dave's converted a couple of T4's (including a classic yellow AA van). Fittted his own pop-top roof along with all the bits inside - rock-n-roll bed, stove, sink, fridge, additional lighting, rear speakers, units, table etc etc - so a handy man to catch up with.

The swivel seat is a very simple design, but there's a number of versions and depending upon where you source them, can go for nearly £200.

The one I opted for was £75 on ebay, and came with it's own base (£87 inc delivery). This means I'll be able to sell my original non-swivel base, which seem to be fetching around £50 on ebay. This was probably one of the best buys so far. I love waking in the morning stretching out in the swivel seat and reading me book!
