Well, thought I'd share my car, her name is Florence, she is a skoda fabia Combi SDI who i bought for £200 from a scrapyard 3 years ago and slowly built up into what she is now,
She has been on a lot of adventures across the uk, frequently tours festivals and hippie gatherings...seems to have became well known at the local ones
Many upgrades include:
Full thermal insulation
Amplified Bose surround sound system originally from a Mazda
Webasto diesel powered night heater
VW Golf high output sdi diesel engine 'returns 68 mpg and even runs on bio diesel'
2 inch suspension lift
Underbody protection for offroad
Full Bohemia-SE trim and wiring conversion' all top of the range extras now fitted' ' she was originally a base model '
And many more things i cant remember off the top of my head
She is used as my daily car, but i have also built a double bed that fits into the back with fold out table and made curtains that fit for camping trips, also a deep cylcle leisure battery mounted under the floor in the boot for overnight heating etc, she has also been fully insulated behind all the panels and roof lining so in warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Anyway, heres a few pictures of her
She is made from scrapyard parts, not all genuine parts, for instance the roof rails are from a Kia and the front seats are from a Rover
