Looks awesome! Just enough to get it looking right but not on the deck.
The spoilers look great too. I have those and the rail covers penciled in for mine too

Well it’s been a while since I did anything to the van. (Getting married in September put a squeeze on cash flow) as always, this build ain’t the fastest, or the most exiting!!
Plans for the future are:
*Reverse camera and compatible head unit.
*Maybe a shark fin Ariel.
*Get my spoiler fitted and painted.
*Dings/dents fixed
*More soundproofing front and rear
*Door lights and handle swap (thanks sean1066)
*Side rail covers.
Probably a few more I’ve forgotten.
Anyway, stripped the bits from the back to get my camera cables routed. Just waiting for it to turn up now!!

Great mate. I’m looking forward to getting them on. I’m going to get some door warning lights and looms, also need to sound proof them too. So I’ll do it in one hit

Ahh yeah I’ve seen his bits being sold on eBay.
Do you mean you’re selling a set of lights mate? If so, I’ll probably take them at some point. Gotta get this camera in (and fund my new head unit) first.

This is the next round lot of mods I’m going to do (when time allows) Reverse cam. Door handles and spoiler.
Plan is to get the camera in first, then do door handles plus lights plus soundproofing in one hit.
Spoiler can wait until I’ve got the other bits bought that need painting.

Thanks again to Sean1066. Handles are spot on mate Image

Your going to have a busy weekend then peter?
Door handles are easy to do.
Reversing camera not to bad to fit but hard work running all the wires. Well I found it hard work 😂
