Rolling Eyes Have been browsing brazilianbay for a while now and been meaning to join up. Finally found a spare evening and went for it (maybe it was the chance of half price carpets from Danbury!). Proud owner of our airbus, Lily (Dartmoor, you'll be pleased to know she's keeping well though no re-spray yet!) who sits on the driveway smiling at us through the window when she's not trundling down to the coast. Good to get to know everyone and their fellow bays.

So Wafa55 is Lily going to stay in her original Brazilian shade or do you have plans for a change of colour? If so, what's it going to be?

Our initial plans were to get a lower half respray done before the onset of winter. Unfortunately various circumstances meant we hadn't been able to. We'd still like to (mango green would eb the colour of choice) however Brazilian white has grown on us (that and waiting til we can afford to get it done!). Have been steadily adding to Lily over the months (roof rack that looks like a crown(!) chrome hubs, wing mirrors, wheel cover, eyelids, etc.) Very tempted by the carpet offer too, so will watch this space. Stereo being fitted next week so no more listening to ipod plugged into a speaker that you can't hear over the din of road noise, crockery rattle and webasto going full pelt!

Hi Wafa from all at Danbury! If your ever passing Bristol your more then welcome to call in and see over 1000 different colours to help you choose your respray colour and youll see lots of other painted customer vans too. The problem is there is too much choice! White does look cool though too (especially when lowered with alloys ) Jason Very Happy

Great to hear from you - and glad my former bus has such a good home! I miss her of course - but am growing more attached to my T5 Bilbo. I like the hub caps! Do post some pics of the improvements some time!

Hello to all and thanks for the warmest of welcomes, especially to Dartmoor. Yes, your old bus is going strong and bringing much happiness to us. I will get some photos on soon so you can see the extras we've added. As said in previous post, the respray has gone on hold - we have a little one on the way in a few months time so I suspect funds may be redirected towards redecorating the spare room rather than the van! Lily (as she was very soon Christened) is proving to be a beauty though, starting up every morning during the cold spell, ticking along beautifully. She has done her first wedding (my sister in Cornwall last October!) too, amongst various weekends away over the autumn. Good to hear from you. I must post your top-trumps card to you! Sorry!
