Our Bkd Conversion

Post by Iparkes » Sun Nov 11, 2018 9:58 pm

Evening all

Thought I'd share a few pics of what will become our new company van.
It was purchased with engine failure, so I thought we may aswell carry out a bkd conversion. Will keep you all updated as I get more pics.

Firewall modification to accept extra pipework

So as I come to the closing stages of this build, I can honestly say there's been some points when I thought, why am I bothing lol.

But I'm glad I pushed through with it. Everything from the touran is in and working.

6 speed box
Electric power steering
ABS
Webasto
Aircon
Driver / passenger airbags inc side bags ( curtain had to be deactivated )
Touran door mirrors

The wiring was a challenge tho 🙄

What was involved in the conversion and what problems accrued did you use the standard ecu and loom or the bkd loom ECU and clocks

Is the front end a straight bolt on or do you need to modify the wings? Very interested in carrying this out🙂

I like how you think you’re in the closing stages mate......they’re never finished.....wheels, stereo, spoilers, new wheels, seats, more wheels.....it never stops. Ever!
Well done on the conversion mate, I do like the v2 front end
