Frederick sent us this little Syncro Westy from New Mexico in June of 2008. It was in shabby condition, and was vibrating BADLY with a Tiico engine conversion—YUK.

But, it had all original paint, and no RUST (just some rust).

Here is what we did:

• Completely disassembled inside, outside, and under
• Repainted back to original VW white (was gray), including top
• Black texture coating around bottom
• GoWesty steel bumpers front and rear
• New 55% hemp/45% cotton 3-window pop-top tent
• New LP tank
• South African grille and headlights
• South African leather steering wheel
• Every nook and cranny on the inside cleaned
• All black leather Recaro full power front seats
• All interior panels, rear seat and super comfy downstairs mattress upholstered in black vinyl and Recaro fabric
• Under dash systems all rebuilt
• Power window switches moved to central location
• All new brakes, larger up front
• All fresh running gear
• Tiico engine replaced with a fresh GoWesty 2.5 liter engine
• All new exhaust system
• All new cooling system
• Full page of reliability enhancing components preemptively replaced
• All instruments repaired and recalibrated
• Fresh transaxle and front differential:
 - 5.43 final drive gearing F&R, 12% lower which allowed for:
 12% taller 225/70-16 BFG tires all around, then
 1.88:1 2nd gear, 8.7% taller
 1.18 3rd gear, 4% taller
 0.77:1 4th gear, 9% taller
• Drive shaft decoupler and solid shaft instead of viscous coupler
• Front locking differential (this is a triple knob vehicle)
• Porsche 930 Turbo rear drive axles
• New front axles and drive shaft
• GoWesty lifting springs
• OME shocks all around on all fresh suspension
• Skid plate to replace small spare and carrier
• GoWesty double swing away carrier in the rear
• Full size spare tire and wheel on carrier, and tray on opposite side
• Solar powered auxiliary battery system
• Original fridge removed and space turned into cabinetry
• All-electric Engel freezer/fridge installed quick-release style
• High lift jack, stowed on front bumper
• On-board compressed air system with impact wrench for tire changes
• Hi-amp power outlets mounted on bumpers front and rear
• Warn 6000# portable winch—fits front or rear, stowed under rear seat
• Propex British-made LPG furnace in place of original rear heater
• Fiamma F45 awing in BLACK case
• Upgraded stereo with new speakers all around and sub-woofer
• Drop-down DVD player system with infrared head phones, wired to sound system
• CB radio system with removable antenna and amplifier

It took a solid year to get this all wrapped up. But it came out SWEEEEET.
