December 2015.

Drove Winston back home from Villierdorp on Friday, what an amazing difference a proper motor does. The list of "wrongs" was just depressing, including finding out he originally had a 1300 Beetle sub-assembly with a mounting plate made up to fit to the bus cross-member. This again goes back to previous complaints I've had about not being able to trust workshops to do a proper, honest job. I have the previous owners documents, including an Invoice from Volksieworld in Ottery, claiming they had fitted a 1600 Kombi motor in the bus! What a load of bullshit. Anyone who reads this, take note of this crowd of jokers.

Anyway, Winston's back home now, running properly, sounding great, and ready to travel around Cape Town and surrounds for various surf trips and camp outs.
