The best T4 in the UK by far

I dont see any bolt on halfrods inspired stuff here theses guys love the tiki but they love the rod scene which i'm not part of here in the uk but respect some of the great uk cars and vans. Its fair to say that the uk produce some of the best custom choppers, hot rods and custom vans and I reckon this is one of them if you dont see what Gar and Kim did with this take a look at a stock T4 and compare the two.

This was on ebay if it didnt sell then i lost all my faith in the vw scene if i had the cash it be mine.

Buy the way Kim lays down some mean stripes and i think she did alot on the retrim Gar well look at the van!!!! hes got a few other nice bits in pieces a chopper as well and there nice people if you want something like this done you should contact um. South Coast Custom Bournemouth way I Believe.
I wish I didnt push paper for a living!!!

tiki carving one step to far

I been thinking it be good to Carve up a Tiki from its rawness where a bit short of Palms here in Tonmawr so a trip to the woods might serve up some potental or a wood pile.
But if you look at the two tikis in the middle youll understand why i wont.
For a grand total of £30 i had the Largest and thats come from the Hawaii (well Africa actually) so why bother cant buy the tools for that - well - cause its ok but its not mine and its not what i would carve so maybe just maybe i will.
Or i'll wait un see what Atom does hes threatening to do something he'll either pull it off or chop his leg off!
