What have you done to your VW since you have owned it?

As Bertie was hand painted we covered him in artificial grass, the glue cost more than the grass!!  He has just had a new engine fitted by VW Engine Company, today we took him into JT Automatics in Dartford to have its automatic gear box serviced as it was not running so well since the new engine was fitted.

We changed the front seats to a bench seat and also covered the inside including the floor with artificial grass.

Bertie only has a rock and roll bed so instead of installing a kitchen etc. we have just purchased a T@B trailing caravan.
