The Man Cave

Unfortunately in England, you can’t be outside 100% of the time and sometimes have to retreat to your Man Cave. Here you can read about DIY, Music, Entertainment and VW Transporters!

  I hope you all had a fantastic Easter break, I certainly did! When it comes to holidays, I make sure I try and not leave a day spare and ensure that I make the most of my time off. Have you ever had a holiday and when you come back to work and someone asks you what you did and you just don’t really know –it’s depressing! Plan something for every day, that’s my advice, that way your holiday…

  I live very closely to Audiosport, they make high quality fibreglass products, and carry out repairs using fibreglass. They specialise in VW Transporters in particular T4 and T5. With their products you can make lots of awesome modifications to your van. In this article I’m going to give a brief run down of my experience fitting their superb Audiosport VW Transporter T4 Door Pockets. If you are fitting these pockets yourself then I recommend watching this video that Kelly…

  PVRIS (which is apparently pronounced Paris and not ‘Pervis?’ like I’ve been saying for ages) are an American rock band from Massachusetts. Their sound is a combination of fairly poppy alternative metal with a strong electronic edge. They are mainstream enough to be pretty accessible for a lot of people but this edge keeps them from being boring or generic. I really like them and have been listening to their album quite a lot recently, if you need proof…

  Not so long ago I had a week off, it was a supreme week full of mini adventures and awesome activities. We started off the week with a trip to Granite Planet Climbing Centre in Penryn, this awesome place hosts well over a hundred different climbing routes in a fantastic indoor facility. We had an hour and half introductory session with Tony the owner of the centre. He talked us through all the basics and by the end of…

  As you may have previously seen and read about I’m a big fan of Sticker bombing and have already stickerbombed the whole of my VW T4’s roof and the back of one of its seats as well as a rear storage box. I’ve had this old subwoofer box for well over a year now, I bought it second hand and although the sub itself is great quality and works well, the enclosure has always been a bit beat up…

  Marmozets are a young, female fronted Alt rock band from Yorkshire, here in England. Despite some of them still being teenagers, their music is really well put together and very intricate in places. I love the almost manic feel and high energy of their music, each song being jam packed with riffs and awesome singing. Marmozets – Born Young And Free Marmozets – Captivate You Marmozets – Why Do You Hate Me?

  Road trips in your van or car can make for some of the best journeys and holidays, but the last thing you want to face at the end of a long day on the road is a problem with your tyres. Therefore, keeping your tyres in good condition before you set off is always a great idea. Remember that smoothly running tyres doesn’t just mean that you are less likely to suffer a puncture or a blow out, but…

  Aluna (who sings vocals and writes the lyrics) and George (who produces and plays the instruments) both make up AlunaGeorge. At first I didn’t know their names and thought AlunaGeorge was a cool band name, then I found it was just their first names combined and was a little bit disappointed. Luckily they are a lot better at coming up with great tunes than they are at band names. Anywho, they are an awesome, London based, electronic music duo.…

  My Springer Spaniel Rufus loves a trip to the beach. The huge plain of sand, pools of sea water and loads of doggy friends to make, mean he always has a great time! His and my favourite beach to go for a walk on has got to Perranporth. It’s great for dogs and is so big you can happily let them off the lead so they can have a great big run without having to worry about other beach…

  The cab of my VW T4 is probably the part of the van which I’m most proud of. It’s taken a lot of time and effort, removing pretty much all of it, modding it and putting it back again. It’s been transformed from a scratched, used and abused grey cab to a sleek factory fresh looking cab; all in black and finished with chrome. I’ve replaced the seats, flocked the dash, re-trimmed the headlining and painted all the plastics.…
