Well in the end, I didn't buy either of the ones I was asking about ( silver kombi convert or ex BG kombi convert)
I've bought a lwb van instead. Will book it in for rear seats at Sirus asap. I'll pick the van up on Sunday.
Comes with everything I want except rear windows and parking sensors.
Has nice looking 18 alloys, 3 have brand new tyres, Golf steering wheel and seats, cruise control, AC, electric windows, I think doorcards have been swapped. He has the colour matched mirror panels and door handles just have black protectors on them.

So now will need soundproof, insulation and carpet buying for me to fit once I learn how
Some sort of reversing camera
Sort the built in satnav as it has no idea where it is. To be googled...
Fit rear seats, windows etc by sirus, will see if they can do rear windows too, unless you can remove the black out?ImageImageImageImage

Nice one mate! I remember your post from a few weeks back.
That’s a nice looking van you’ve picked up, with some very tasteful mods already done. Good find

If it can be done. Even if I have to get someone to just straight-out fit new glass, I can send you mine

We need a glass fitter. That can swap them over. I have clear glass. Look when it comes to it let me know. We can see if can arrange something.

Stedlocks, which is your fave?

I'm very chuffed. Having to resist buying an insulation and carpet kit ATM until I get it home. Just waiting to hear back from sirus if they can do it on Monday

Oh. Anyone know if anyone does mid point Bulkheads, to fit between the new seats or do I nod the existing normal bulkhead

Ha!
When I was looking, the colour order was
1. Blackberry/Pure Grey
2. Black
3. White
4. Anything else!

Igot my carpet from vanliningcarpet.co.uk it was very cheap, as they are having a sale on. A short wheelbase needs around 10 metres, to do the walls, headlining, bulkhead delete bits and the floor.

ooo, Blackberry is nice! I was looking at one that was in Viper Green, but it had a tailgate on it.

I have looked at vanliningcarpets, but their website seems to crash when I add a length of carpet. plus the fact they can't spell adhesive on their website puts me off lol. also not sure, so from them, does that mean I only need 5m of carpet? as it's 2m wide, but price wise, it's about the same price as other places that don't mention width, so thinking I would need 10m anyway (£100 for 10m @vanliningcarpets, £125 for 10m @ megavanmats)

the site I've been looking at is Kiravans, they offer 10m of carpet, 10 sheets of rubber sound deadening, 10m of foam insulation, 12 cans of glue for £270

so for an extra £170-155 (depending if I bought carpets elsewhere) I'm getting all the insulation bits

Yeah, the 'adheasive' thing annoyed me too! ;)

I first bought 4m @2m width, so 8 square metres, with adhesive (trimfix high temp stuff) for £40......then another 2m for£20, when I realised I didn't have enough for the floor!

So £60 delivered, with sticky stuff.

That's good to know, so most places must just be meaning length then not m² and as you have the swb I'm deffo going to need the 10, especially with practice fits and muck ups. Although I should save some with the side and rear windows. Did you get the anthracite? Looks very black, think my dogs hair would show up hugely on that! Graphite might be better
