I didn’t know you had 2 vans mate! Looking forward to seeing the other one at some point. Have you got a build thread for it on here?
I’ve never seen a twin caliper set up like that before. It looks really smart

Hi Pete, I’ll be swapping the engine over into the brown one, so the white van is unlikely to see the road again. Bar the engine it’s totally stock now anyway, as I swapped over all the nice parts when I first started on the brown van in 18/19.
Yeah I’ve had to use an early style rear axle to get the Porsche calliper up at the rear, as it wasn’t possible to design a mounting bracket with enough strength using a later style one (at least without the mounting being huge that is). Cheers I’m pleased with it.

Nothing much happening at the minute with the van, just continuing to collect parts for the winter changes.
Managed to get some half decent photos from today’s venture out though.

Love the Lake District in this time of the year. Is this down the Hardknott pass? Stunning photos.

Well just went through all 56 pages of your build and must say well done mate.

Cracking looking van and clearly a lot of effort has been put into this and you have been rewarded. 8)

[mention]b8byw [/mention]thanks for taking the time to go through the build and for your comment. Yeah it’s certainly kept me occupied over the past 2 year, thanks again.

Sunday drives in your van through the Lake District, sounds like a great way to spend the weekend.
