Ok so i bought the van must be almost 2 years ago just as a rolling shell, just looking to get it resprayed, fit a zeemax kit and fit a turbo 1275..
Ahh how things got out of hand
How i got it
Image
Image
Image
Image

So first off i bought some wheels, some camira brakes, new koni adjustables
Image
Image

Then it went to the panel shop to get the loving touches it needed............
Bodykit
Image
Image
Image
Image

New fuel filler
Image

Then to the roof
Image

Rear Lights
Image

New and improved rear lights
Image
Image
Image

New front indicators
Image

Filled in side windows
Image

Then the suzuki G13b motor went in
Image

Extended the front
Image
Image

Then got over the suzuki idea and am taking on the 4efte

Suicide doors (still a working progress)
Image
Image
Image
Image

Got the hydraulics ready to go in
Image
Image
Image

So there it is thus far.... I think, so many things are happening i cant remember what has been done and what hasnt. There isnt much this van dosnt have
Cheers
Dan

Extending the front like that looks like hard yakka :o
How long did that take?

that engine looks familiar...

Extending the front was more of a drama than it seems.... Because the bonnet is narrower at the front than it is at the rear, just near the front lights had
to have a plate welded in, and because i have a bodykit for it the kit also has to be modified to suit the new front.. And it took me all of 5 minutes to tell the
beater what i wanted done, as for how long it took him i think nearly all day.....
