What you’re looking at here is a new experience to me. Not fatherhood, I’ve been doing that for 11-months now, and have looked after her brothers for a tad longer. No, I’m talking about worrying about rear passenger safety and comfort. For pretty much my entire air-cooled life to date, I’ve only concerned myself with how comfortable both I and sometimes the other bum in the front passenger seat has been. I’ve never had to worry about kids and have developed an irrational hatred of rear sun blinds, DVD players in headrests and baby on board signs. And don’t even get me started on those matchstick family stickers… I’ve always been of the opinion that I never had a sunblind when I was little, I just learned to look the other way…

ENGLISH WHEELING COURSES With 40 years experience restoring the likes of Aston Martins, Bentleys, Ferraris and Jaguars, Somerset based Adrian Breeze knows how rewarding panel beating can be. He also knows it’s a dying art so wants to pass his skills on to the next generation of restorers. His English wheeling courses have been designed to do just that. There are two courses aimed at anyone who is interested in using an English wheel or in broadening their skills. One day courses run on the first Monday of every month and the three day courses run on the last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of each month.

WATER-COOLED FOR Hi Camper&Bus, well that was a refreshing turn up for the books and no mistake. I picked up my June issue from the newsagents and was a bit ticked off to see a T5 on the cover. I mean, don’t you do a mag for that lot anyway? Why waste the space in a classic VW magazine? It’s not what we want. But then, having read the feature, and loved Jimbo’s pictures, I thought it was an interesting Bus to feature. It’s not like all the ones that hog the space at Busfest these days. Sure, it’s lowered and been given a face-lift etc, but it was built on a budget over a period of time using a crap old Van to start with. Inspiring stuff. I’d be happy…

1985 Type 25, Nigel Broatch Nigel Broatch bought his Bus at the latter end of 2007 and it’s his daily driver. He’s completed many fascinating modifications over the years, the most obvious being the rustic paintwork, which has a very rough texture, thanks to a clever mix of grease, sand and masonry paint, costing only £20! He certainly never needs to buy any wax for polishing. Prior to this major transformation the paintwork was red. Then there’s a profusion of solar panels dotted everywhere, which Nigel reckons all told, can return up to around 400 watts. “Luckily the body had been well undersealed when I bought the Type 25, but after a couple of years use, I realised it needed a new engine, which is a 1.9 litre water-boxer,” explains Nigel.…
