Got it home and replaced clutch and flywheel with new luk items, and a full service

3 stage polish will be carried out tomorrow and then on Wednesday will have a couple of parking dents removed

I will also fit coilovers and rear axle flip. Wheels and front end conversion along im not 100% sold on it.

The rear will be insulated and covered in 4 way stretch carpet

I do car/truck keys for a living and this will be my daily work horse

Still parts to finish carpeting bulkhead and exposed metal, I had my last van insulated in the same stuff and the difference it makes is un believable.

Going to weld up a steel frame tomorrow to hold my organisers so the dont rattle then once the linings and electrics are finished fit the frame and a bench

The rubber floor looks like it's going to be a nightmare to keep clean, still to tidy up a bit of wiring and fit another key cutter, then I can move on to the exterior, dont know how it's going to work out because the head room I've lost is hugh in the back I have to half crouch to sit at the bench but I love to way it drives so might have to be a bit uncomfortable to I can afford a new transporter
