Back to the german side of life guys and gals..
This asshole is back!!

Picked this looooong bugger up sunday night from over the bridge.. '04 plate 1.9 tdi lwb.
20 inches rangerover rims just refurbed, phat side bars with steps and colour coded.. Thats about it lol...









I tad on the high side of life though..
So first things first.. Set of coilovers ordered monday morning 24hr postage.. So booked tuesday off work tongue
And by Jo the buggers turned up



So thought it would be rude not to fit them lol!



Also first thing this morning i won a full width rock and roll bed so whip down to Barnstaple and collected it.. After the van was lowered Wink







Thats it for now geezzzers!!

I decided that the coilies wound down just wasnt enough so...

I've hub modded the fecker as well..

Plenty of measuring and trail fitting then i cut some stainless tubing to sleeve the coilies..





32mm stainless spacer cut and the brake pipe ect bracket removed



Then welded together.



And fitted to the strut



And then i fired the coilie back on the van



And dropped the bugger through the hub..

Also cut 25mm out of the rear bump stop mounts and wound the rear down a bit more lol!

And thought she deserved a little wash now she was down at a sensible height











Oh and chucked a bit of carpet on the floor and some tunes in there too..
