Just on the rear as part of the conversion.

Now I can drive it, I'm off to see if I can recycle some of the parts for a full set up...if not then a new kit all round :twisted:

Hitting the road at last?
Interesting to see the differences with the headlining etc to my earlier version

Not long now, sorting insurance out this evening so the plod better be ready for my mighty 1.4 tomorrow!

Hopefully the headliner and interior is all being changed up soon.

The plan is to carpet the floor area in the wheelchair channel (which I'm sure I will regret when it belting it down and I have no traction on my wheelchair) and the surrounding black trims which have all been scratched up with the previous owner getting in and out.
Then trim the A/B/C/D pillars, rear window surrounds and headliner in alcantara.

It has a side exit exhaust too which was modified to suit the ramp in the rear and it's hanging horrendously low so that is high up on the list of jobs which need doing too.

Great looking van, seem quite rare these as well, being a SWB. Good luck.

A small (& mainly disinteresting) update today.

The rear of the car was also modified to allow a wheelchair user to sit behind the driver so have seatbelts and bits dotted around the place.

Removed all of these today to start prepping panels which will be retrimmed.

Still not got round to having my Air Suspension looked at as we are still in lockdown here Image but slowly gathering more parts for the build.
