Alfie is a stunning 1964 VW split screen camper van. He was born in Arizona, USA until we kindly rescued him from the stifling, dry arrid desert! We got him from a previous owner who had already started to renovate him but he was more of a "rat look" than agorgeous wedding car, so we knew we had our work cut out for us!
Andy has spent months lovingly restoring him to his former glory, taking him apart, ordering new parts, welding him, polishing up the old parts etc etc!
So I arrived at work on Saturday morning and as I turned round the corner I was amazed at how gorgeous he looked in his sparkling cream and white paint work!! Andy was beaming from ear to ear! It took us nearly 2 hours to get the camper off the trailer, but once we finally got him off we could work on fitting the windows, lights, handles and locks. Most of the parts are the original 1964 parts that Andy has polished up but a few bits we have had to accept that we needed to buy new parts for instead.
I will keep you posted on how we get on in my next blog! I have posted some photos onto the Camper van page so you can see what he looks like so far
Thanks for reading our blog! We cant wait for him to be complete
