This is the second one that makes me smile! Send me some good quality pictures and I will post them on my site,

I like the surfboards on the roof, and also the wood choices.

That’s a great looking VW bus! I like the wood choices you used—and love the details you included!

Your beaut looking Kombi is a long way from the surf in your neck of the woods Tony…

You’ve certainly done yourself proud with the build and Dutchy’s plan….Top Marks Sir…

Great job GR8... nice contrast with the timbers…

Having assisted Dutchy with the Sketchup, I can appreciate the detail and “complexity” of the front… also impressed with the back corners which was a pain to simulate in the digital model.

And a smart VW to boot… better than a smart phone… obviously from the last gallery picture, it even tells you surf’s UP!

Nice job and love what little I can see of the seats, would you have a before picture of them?
The locks on the back doors is way cool.
And as you said the plans are first rate and I was really impressed with the thinking and details Dutchy put in to them.
Love it when when I come on here and there’s a new build to check out and such a nice one too!!!
