Book Description

8 April 2014 Restoration Manuals
The VW Transporter is one of the most iconic vehicles on the roads today. Introduced in 1967, and continuing in production until October 1979, the Bay was the successor to the legendary 'split-screen' Transporter, and is the second of five generations of van so far given the Transporter name by VW. Even the poorest examples of the 'Bay' now fetch significant money, and imports from drier climes continue to appear on British roads, so the case for restoring one of these hugely popular vehicles is increasingly attractive. Using the trusted Haynes practical step-by-step approach, this all-colour manual follows the restoration of a 1979 Devon camper from beginning to end, and provides expert advice on the problems likely to be encountered when working on vehicles that have seen over 35 years of use and, in Britain, as many years of rain, salt and mud. This is the only guide to restoring (or part-restoring) a 'Bay' you will ever need.

I bought this book to help with the restoration of my late bay. It's a cracking book with easy to follow instructions and photos of each stage. Whilst every restoration project is going to be different, this book covers most - if not all - eventualities. The author clearly knows what he's talking about as it's obviously written from experience gained over many years.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book, which covers everything from what to consider and look for before buying a bus, to the essential finishing touches at the end of your project.

After looking at a number of possible books I took the plunge and ordered the new kid on the block! So very glad I did as was clearly written by someone who has been in my position. I can't express how good this book looks when you first open it! Beautiful detailed pictures and great easy to follow written word. This book is worth every penny and will help with jobs big and small. Great price and nice to see lots of detail a big well done to the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars From a bay owner. 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase
Fletcher Gillet obviously knows his VW type 2's. This book is without doubt one of the most comprehensive VW camper restoration books written thus far. The wording is intelligible and uncomplicated,the pictures are self explanatory.

Well done the author. Sense without comprise. I will refer to it when I next restore my own bus.
