VW Restore ("SEN"-91 Westy) A Vehicle worth saving!
SEN as I've called my '91 WESTY is a solid GL model that I looked long and hard for. He needed some immediate attention after purchase in July of 2009 and a long list of items was devised, some that could wait until money and time allowed. The name SEN comes from the abbreviated letters of the date that I took possession. Sen spent most of his life in Japan from what I can gather so I have chosen the Japanese translation of SEN="Wizard" as the true meaning of the name. There are several meanings to the word SEN so Wizard seems to be the most fitting. I think he has some sort of Wizardly power to have avoided virtually any serious rust since her conception in 1991. Although the Vanagon is the farthest thing from it I think SHINKANSEN (Japanese Bullet train) is a worthy long version of the name SEN...

Charging ports and voltmeters

Recently I've added some useful USB and dc power (cig lighter-style) ports. First one is in the dash, replacing the two decommissioned a/c switches.  The voltmeter here monitors the main car battery.

The second set has been placed beside the clothes closet door. Bothe sets are switched in order to de-power the bright voltmeter at night and so I don't drain my batteries while over extended parking periods.

One remaining cigarette lighter-style port is still planned somewhere behind the passenger seat so I can plug in a mobile fan for those extra warm days of driving in the summer months.
