Garry approached me to discuss his big plan. Garry is an electrician, and spends a lot of his time with his van, either eating up the miles or working out the back of it as he installs an alarm or similar.
Garry had bigger plans, Garry wanted something really special, Garry wanted the ultimate Kombi..........
Jordan wanted a fresh interior that was sympathetic to the factory look, albeit plusher.
Shaun Lewis's show winning VW Transporter with Retro Retrims leather interior. Cover feature 2015.
Clients brief: "Nothing boring!"
The vehicle came in from the guys at Border Restoration having received a full rebuild, including ACE engine, Red 9 suspension and House of Kolor paint. Needless to say the outside looked the nuts, so I had my work cut out to make the inside look just as special.
A 3/4 Original 'Rusty' Lee Rock & Roll Beds setup was installed, I created the unique wraparound limo style leather seating, with removable ice bucket for making the most of those lazy summer days. The side base cushions are loose and easily removed to allow access to storage underneath.
Lime green stitching is used throughout, including the Porsche seats and one of a kind armrests in the doorcards, marrying together the crazy paint with a more subdued interior.
The headliners a bit special as well....
Many thanks to Clive Dorsman for letting me loose on his baby, this puppy is going to be raking in lots of attention next summer, got to be one of the most special Splits out there!
