Big Red Maxi

Post by kevindoyle » Tue Mar 23, 2021 10:38 pm

Hi new to the group said to throw up a few photos of how the van changed in a few months

First job was strip the back out and finish it a bit tidier. As it is a work van I didn't go too mad on it ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

As the van is mainly used for work I pick up a second hand bulk head. Blanked out the panels and cover the whole thing in anthracite grey carpet. Makes the cabin very quiteImageImage

Van looks nice, what coilovers did you end up with?

Went with the stance + coilovers and shackle kit for the rear. Extremely happy with them so far but only time will tell how they hold up. Hard to beat for the price of them

Hi Kevin,

Van is looking really nice. Have you put the van through the CVRT yet with the coilovers/ shackle kit? I want to get mine a bit lower but I'm worried they will fail it due to the change in the suspension.

No i only got a fresh test on it and then I changed the suspension. Not sure what way it will go when I try to re-test it.
