can u tuck the front wheels in on a T25..?
either that or skinny wheels upfront.. tub the arches..

kinda screws your turning circle up though lol!

or just fill the van with loads of nice plush interior goodies and the odd extra batts to handle all that power needed for the beer cooler bounce bounce

Ok the next update is by me ...nomates ,as griff forgot his camera , his sheet metal , his sandpaper ,his paint,and numerous other things ....

Here he is looking for his windscreen



And here is the latest problem ....the corners of the screen are a bit rusty ,leaving the floor of the van under water when it rains


so we cut the rust out ,not actually that easy to do




then we welded up the holes ,one side we had a doner panel ,which didn't actually fit for some reason , the other side we made the repair section out of some sheet steel



not the neatest of welding ,but time was tight and the rain looked like it could come at any moment ....well thats my excuse anyway lol

so griff slapped on a little filler to hide any grinding marks


griff then rattle canned some white over the top ,but this looked a bit 'make do' so we decided to mask off the area and apply a bit of satin black ......by now we were really against time .....as both our sunday dinners were ready , so we did the only decent thing ...and rushed it ,LOL




what do you reckon ?....i think it looks better in black under the screen





that was all we had time for ,so I left griff to re-fit the dash and windscreen wipers in his own time ......so that will never get done

no worries scoops, was nice to have a look at your van, you didn't really hold us up as i also wasted half an hour laughing at lisa rocking out to guitar hero lol!

so thanks to steve i should be able leave important stuff on the floor now without it getting soaked when it rains.

well back in september i found this shit in the water expansion bottle







so today i have done a compression test and all 4 cylinders came upto 11 bar which is about 170 psi Question









the plugs are a bit black





so yet again it looks like this on my drive



just need to make some room in my shed Rolling Eyes and the engine will be stripped of its heads after my op and a top end rebuild will be done, as i can't afford the scooby conversion now as i have to pay for some gas training courses in feb.
