Team Siver has taken a couple more steps towards completion over the last couple of days. The Sidebars I ordered from VanStyle arrived nicely packaged and wrappe so Wednesday night I was able to fit them. Unlike the previous sidebars I had on Team yellow these come with cross member supports which reach under and across the van. They say it gives them more strength in side impacts – I hope I don’t ever find out.
This week the Van has also had its rear brakes done – new discs and pads were fitted by VW Heritage. Surprisingly, I think their prices are quite comparable to the independants. For example they have quote something like 260 + vat (labour) and 240+ vat (springs) to have her lowered using the VW genuine parts. Now last time I looked you were looking at 400 quid for a set of T32 springs with no labour. Lastly yesterday I got Screen Tech to tint the side window- result.
