Love the bike rack for the rear of the van, genius idea. As I've got a Kombi I hope there could be a way to secure that type of rack to the lugs from where the rear seats are locked in. Carpeting in the back looks good as well. Did you have caps for the screw heads for the panels?

Thank you. Yes, I'm sure you could do something to enable a rack to connect where the seat fixes.
Capetting came out ok - not my favourite job - yes, caps from B&Q...

Not really - take down headliner, measure carefully, drill 22mm hole with a step drill, bolt aerial base to van, run wires down side of van, connect to back of stereo. :mrgreen:

Sound. I live in the mountains so signal can be a bit of a nightmare. Will look into this more.

Is there any chance that you can send me the pictures on this tread. I am following a lot of what you are saying but would love to see pictures so I can copy. Thanks

Any chance the pictures could be re-uploaded? Links to this thread keep popping up in alot of searches I've done for various things but can't see your pictures :(


Thanks
