    New build thread as the old ones no longer valid

    Hiya guys.
    Not using the van hardly if it all due to having a company vehicle... think in 2018 the van went to vanwest which is around 120 mile round trip for me, download festival around 300 mile and dubs of anarchy which is around 120 mile and that was its lot.. so 540 mile in year... whilst this is good for the mileage and fuel. Not very good on the van..
    To cut along story short itís mot time and went up to take the van and the brakes are corroded and also the inside is damp..
    so think itís time to forget the old build thread and start a new one as Iím going to strip the vans rear out and start a fresh as the the damp has wrecked the head lining and also warped the floor..
    So just gonna strip out and start a fresh.

    Went up the farm this morning to get cracking on the stripping out of the van..
    hereís the list of whatís been done so far:

    Stripped out all electrical switches, sockets, fuse box, hook up, solar controller and inverter.

    Removed and broke up the u shaped seating and wrapped up the upholstery and stored away..

    Started removing the floor but found where it was a mini bus it has a full structure made out of 2x1 Chanel that was bolted to the floor..

    No pictures as yet as this is just the boring stuff but when its completely bare will start adding some

    Its a juggling act for us 4 vehicles and 2 drivers. Swap between the T4 and polo for work. Then guess what? Molly came back in the house yesterday and said "Corrado's got a flat battery"
