    Adventure Van Build Thread!

    Okay, so not much of a build thread, more of a modification thread...

    Built our van a good few years ago, but the changes/modifications continue. I'll try and post up things as they happen, and maybe give a guided tour of work so far.....

    For now have a pic!

    Not driven it yet, just messing about with tyre sizes. Was going 265/35 on the rear, but the tyre itself was too wide. Going to stretch 225/45 on the 8.5" fronts as they poke way too much any wider.

    Had 18" audi reps on it moons ago, with 225/45 tyres, and the ride was acceptable, but you had to go steady in rough car parks/sites etc.

    Ha ha.... it could do with going lower maybe, but it ain't no show queen - it gets used too much for that.

    Mine rode shocking on the audi replicas but I suspect that my rear springs are cheap eBay rubish
