So having bought puddle lights a good few months ago, it was time to get them fitted!!

With great difficulty I managed to dremmel out the holes which was by far the trickiest bit! I really wanted it to be perfect but I'll give it a 7 out of 10 Image

Taking the door cards and wing mirror was all relatively easy, but the. Feeding the loom through with the current wiring took me a bit to figure out.

Anyway, coded both doors, tested, refit everything and step back to admire my handy workImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Vans look amazing from where it started just a quick question the bumpers you had pained where they the original black plastic ones? Or did you have to buy new ones and get them pained?
Many thanks
Ryan

They were original black plastic mate. In the future I'll probably get them redone but for now they'll do

So a few people know I've had a few knocking issues with my BC racing coilovers so changed over to rubber top mounts instead.... And noise be gone!

Did you find anything that was obviously loose or worn on the adjustable top mounts?
Mine have been flawless for best part of three years but I will be rebuilding with new bearings soon.

Cannot find a single thing loose, hitting, or anything. Tried literally everything so can only put it down to noisy camber plates? But before I took the camber plates off they felt solid but I suppose me wiggling them about isn't going to replicate the noise I could hear

Annoying, but is what it is

Haha, yeah I know not bad eh!?! But..... He had issues with the software he was using and it wouldn't write to the ECU, so he's now looking at maybe getting it rolling roaded instead

Van looks amazing and being able to read and see it step by step, makes me want to start work on my van even more.
