1990 VW T25 Autohome Komet
For sale. Due to a change in personal financial circumstances its time for me and my van to sadly part ways.. So apart from the memories of jaunts all over the country and the friends I have made.along the way let's get down to it. My 1990 Auto homes Komet, all history and receipts from 1992 to present day. Running a new fully recon 2.1 DJ supplied and fitted by the VW engine company in Kent and under warranty until Jan 2022 with Clover Autos Audi specialist in Epping. A 5 speed dog leg gear box benefitting from an oil change 12 months ago. All earth's were replaced too. Along with the engine, the manifolds, fuel pump, timing sensor, sparks, leads, rotor arm, expansion tank was also replaced, as well as all coolant pipes in the engine bay and all filters, fuel, oil, air. New starter motor (New from Brickwerks) New clutch New flywheel. New engine has done approximately 2.5K oil change was done at 500 miles. Full stainless steel exhaust from Just Kampers. New stainless Steel coolant pipes, front to back New radiator, fan and thermo switch which cuts in at lower temperature than the original. All coolant was obviously replaced with G13. Also, New fuel lines, the van has mainly plastic fuel lines but the rubber bits joining the pipes were all replaced in September 2021 so ready for the new fuel changes and piece of mind. New fuel tank in 2018 along with a new sender unit. New Handbrake (original VW from Brickwerks) changed when the engine was replaced in Dec 2020. Replaced the front brakes in 2019. New front cab window seals and window scrapers, inside and out. Quarter lights seals and rear window seals are included, I just haven't done them yet. Headlight loom has been replaced, not with anything fancy but better than candles and using Halogen bulbs, way better! Heater matrix works hot and cold. Interior wise it is mainly original, the seats have been covered over with seat covers as the original ones underneath are worn, but the foam is still far comfier than then the blue stuff you get now. Sleeps 2 downstairs on a 3/4 fold out bed and 2 small, flexible, adults or children upstairs on a full width double. Rear seats has three lap belts Drivers and passenger front seats both swivel Two tables including a new table top from JK. New main battery in Dec 2020 and New leisure battery in March 2021. New EMI dash tidy from JK. Zig unit and 12V work as does the 240V. Mains hooks up and gas appliances all work. Two ring hob, sink and drainer and a three way fridge with freezer compartment which will freeze a chicken in the fridge if you let it! On board cold water tank with working electric foot pump Working propex night heater, New thermostat fitted in 2018. Loads and loads of cupboard space! It's a tardis.. 4 speakers, two pioneers in the front, I popped the amplifier in the pioneer head unit so no stereo but wiring there. New Fiamma roof vent with fly screen. Wind out Fiamma F45 awning and figure of 8 awning rail also fitted. Rear heated screen, the pipe to the rear washer is blocked but the pump works. Two relatively new (2019) rear Hancook commercial rated tyres 50w solar panel, needs to be wired into the leisure battery, I can do this before sale. Full set of JK thermal blinds and external thermal screen included in the sale. The bodywork and some of the interior needs some TLC. There is the usual surface rust as you would expect from a vehicle of this age and build, but you can see it. I am not going to hide stuff with filler just to get a sale. The sliding door sill needs replacing as does the drivers side rear arch as the previous owner had an argument with a post. There had been a leak on the rear window, the previous owner replaced the window seal but didn't treat the rust that well. It doesn't leak anymore and hasn't since I have owned the van. The passenger side roof gutter, I treated the rust but left some sharps edges hence the flash band, need someone who can fill or weld a small piece in. The tailgate is not rotten, the front cab doors are not rotten and have been waxoiled inside, the sliding door is not rotten, again wax oiled inside. The sliding door card needs replacing and a new one from JK is included in the sale. There is no rot on this van, solid underneath, had a bit of welding done at the rear before being undersealed earlier in the year. Agreed valuation of 10k which maybe too low give that prices are going up but definitely reflects the amount of money put into this van. I am looking for 9k ovno given the mechanical work done and the.fact that 2.1DJ with 5 speed boxes are quite rare and also pulls like a train happily sits at 60-65 on the motorway. I will miss this van but hope someone can enjoy it and also do the bits I can't afford to do to get this back to its original glory.
