András Félegyházy and his 4×4 extra-high top conversion

Several of us know András and have heard of his mythical fibre glass roofing skills! András paid me a visit in Brighton on his way to Dover to leave these shores for his home town in Hungary and then on to a new work contract in Mongolia! Can’t wait for his updates on that one!

Mini LT 4X4 by night!

Ray Perry & Andras met up on Brighton seafront for a chinwag and a mulled cider! What a rare treat to get these 2 beasts together (the vans that is!)

The bus was previously a camper with windows all round, which presumably meant that it was a bus in an even earlier life. It has been owned by a wind farm company and a doctor who had it in his possession for 15 years according to the papers.

We love it. Great work András

In a previous edition of the VOLT magazine we were very proud to feature an as yet unseen build gallery of his work on his big rig. The gallery is below.
