Unfortunately mate, nothing is going to get done this weekend as I’m in the middle of DIY on the house. Hoping I can chip away at the camera next week though. Getting the wires through into the van looks like a pain!!
Going to pick my headunit up later

Love all the little touches your doing to your van @the swan fiend looks totally different to when you started going back though the thread, my favourite mod has to be the duck love that

Cheers mate! It’s a slow burner but I’m happy with it so far. Yeah I like my duck. It came about from a van mascot thread that was doing the rounds a while back

Nice one mate. Are you doing your coilovers yourself? I wasn’t brave enough! Don’t forget to start a build thread.

No way,, I have no mechanical knowledge at all I can change a wheel and that's about it.. Luckily I have a friend that has his own garage and has always been into showing cars mainly escorts, but he knows his way round a motor.

Fair enough mate. I’m sure your mate will do a good job. Doing little mods here and there will give you insight if you want to learn. I’m only confident the at the basic stuff really.

Yhh I'd love to learn, got plenty of things I'd like to do to my caddy so maybe I'll pluck up the courage and have a go at a few things myself
