I have decided if somewhat late to document my conversion of my LWB Transit to a Campervan.....yes i am off my head !

I bought the van from Ebay, yes i did say Ebay, no dealerships or warranties, from a seller on the Isle of Skye. Recruiting my Dad as some sort of sanity to the trip we left johnstone at 0615, got the train to inverness, then on to Kyle of Lochalsh, to be met for a trip to his house which was 1 hour on from there taking us to almost the most north western part of scotland.

We drove it home all the way until Hillington when the alternator belt fell off! Sounds painful and serious but not really although expensive it was not terminal.

As i said earlier this is a catch up of the work already done and then i will continue as work is done.

All info on my conversion is available on my blog along with other pictures of the conversion that would not fit on here due to 1mb size restriction. If you would like the address then contact me on kevinwdick@hotmail.com.

I can't put the link on here as the owners have quite rightly prevented that practise to stop spamming.
