Thanks Peter
My next step is wiring and putting the v6 engine in.
Which I’m looking forward to doing. But a bit scared at the same time 🤪

I know the feeling mate, though I’ve never taken a project on like yours, I get nervous and excited when I go into new territory too. I quite like the feeling actually!

Thanks guys
It is a bit of a beast and it looks awesome in the engine bay if I do say so myself. Now hopefully the next stage will be done by Sunday night

Spent a couple of hours on the wiring today after work. (Just the unpinning)
Should be all unpinned tomorrow and probably start pining in to the v6 ecu Image

Looks like your getting on well @sean1066 hope it all goes plain sailing for you 👍

Can’t wait to see this done I’ve followed your build thread since I joined this forum . Defiantly one of my favourite vans on here (I think it’s a ex bg thing 😂)

I hope you know what your doing with the wiring i wouldn't know where to start with that lot one or two wires maybe but you've got one hell of a bunch there to sort through :lol:
It will be worth it in the end once you fire her up you've got to many guys on here waiting eagerly to see it back on the road
