Vanborghini ex BG maxi

Post by Caddymaxi13 » Mon Nov 30, 2020 1:17 pm

Hi guys
Been on here a while now and had my maxi almost 12 months and love it
Purchased it from Mark at Custom Van creations with rear seats installed

Made a few changes sin the past 12 months and still have a few jobs I would like to do
Mk4 rear lights
7.5 front bumper
New steering wheel
Brake upgrade

Anywhere here's some pics of when I got it

Had a quiet afternoon in work so test fitted a set of lamborghini hurracan wheels. 8.5 x 20s

So the decision was made.... Sell the current wheels and find a set of 4 front lamborghini wheels ImageImageImageImage

Had them sand blasted and powder coated aventador svj gold but had them satin rarther than matt finish

Also treated them to a set of brand new genuine centre caps

But lost the splitter after hitting a dip in the road ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

This is very sharp looking van!
The color combo gold wheels with the baby blue van is spot on!

Just got my enduro bike back from the painters

Hey dude!

I don't suppose by any miracle, you know the RAL colour of the gold on the wheels?

Cheers, Dan

Looks mega that. Picked up my van late last year so havent been able to use it for downhill much since sorting the inside. Just wondered what the 4 way stretch is like to clean if it gets muddy from the MTB wheels?
