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.

Very well written with a common sense, down to earth approach.
The introduction is very self deprecating and the author gives hope to any newbie who fancies restoring a Type 2. To be honest, you'll need to be able to weld pretty well to make full use of this book but if any text can inspire people to get out there and learn to weld then it's this one.
The book is so detailed and concise that it makes you wonder if Mr. Gillett could possibly have any kind of social life or any meaningful interests outside of VW Campers but his loss is most definitely our gain.
