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...

Recently added the South African style mudflaps.  These came from CP1 Imports in Vancouver and come with very poor instructions for the front set and no instructions for the rear.  The front set use three clips to hold the flap to the wheel well.  I was very sceptical about these clips staying in place on rough roads.  So far, however they have not fallen off, even after travelling about 25 miles over very rough logging road.  I may still, use some silicon or epoxy to reenforce the holding power of these clips for my own reassurance.
