  • 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

                    Got my golf for racing round corners... The van is all about the journey - besides, it's a 1.9td, it don't race any where... for now! 😉

                      That's so true but when you eventually do your engine swap we spoke about your banned from getting rid of the golf! I want it and as you said have the van for 'the jurney'

                        Just took delivery of a pair of these;

                        http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3020078848...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

                        Great for magazines, maps and stuff. I'll post up a pic or 2 once they're installed.

                        I've also been working on some more storage, will reveal all on completion!

                          Installed and in use! Going to change the screws to black ones when I can find them - now where did I put them....

                            I need to get some of these, really useful for stashing bits.

                              Got some smaller ones either side of the bed for tissues, torches etc.
