So, you’ve decided to live the dream and restore a classic car or are, at the very least, tempted by the idea of it. Great! But first things first- you need to make some decisions.

More on our VW T25 resto project, here's Matt fitting a power steering kit to the van.
As part of the resto work on our VW T25 I needed to make a new front cab headlining. The old one was a bit dried out, battered and yellowed with age so I decided a replacement was in order.
The only problem was I had a job to find anyone selling them, so that meant getting the sewing machine out and doing it myself which I've turned into another Car DIY tutorial.
Our work van passed its MOT on Monday (yay!)- but the test showed it was in serious need of some new brake pads (not so yay). So here's a quick photo demo of Matt showing you how to change the front brake pads on a Volkswagen T25 van.
