          ditch the lights, get some alloys, tint the windows, paint the side door and polish the heck out of the body and it'd start to look ok

            screw polish and paint...if you got a lot of money and time. i reckon sticker bomb the WHOLE car and clear coat over the top of it lol.

            looks nice tho man
            Parallel lines have got so much in common. It's a shame they'll never meet.

              Ok polishing is a no go paint gone way to far for that also driver side is badly marked i didn't do it. Alloys are hard to come by for a transit but i have a set of 16" steel wheels of a land rover that need to be re-drilled to fit.

              When i got it early last year it needed alot of welding new front left arch left step both doors back chassis and alot more


              This is the damage on the driver side near the front its like that all the way back but not so bad now cause
              i painted it with red oxid


              Oddly enough i can only find this pictures of the inside
              A few from the front

              And then the back

              The table

              The beds made

              The free worktops


              My new rims 16" and there wide they fill the rear arch's nicely


              I got all this for €60 out of a car my dad was scraping








              And sticker bomb will be happening on the back doors the plan is to travel the world in it and stick a sticker of every place I've been on the back door

                Whoa man hold up. Look at those headlights.



                That van looks pissed off. Those headlights look like narrowed eyes and it feels like that van's going to murder someone. Just sayin'.

                    Lots of pictures showing the work i had to do just to get it road worthy

                    Well first thing first was the body work well one wheel arch as started with the help of my dad will get around to the other side and some point

                    The home made wheel arch is going I will miss it anyone want to by it ;D


                    What it was like behind the home made wheel arch


                    I got to play with the air chisel >

                    After a few seconds with the air chisel I had this

                    Cat making a break for it before the sparks start ;D

                    Had to cut the wheel arch to fit

                    And more cutting

                    Wheel arch all weld up

                    Here my dad working on a merc 8-) had to do some welding to the front his using a grinder and having a *** at the same time :roll:

                    My dads cortina his been rebuilding for years now on the right in gray

                    Its sitting this low

                    First of my dads shed nice and warm and lots of shine tools

                    My poor little van

                    Driver side filler mess


                    Bad boy bonnet

                    Sheet metal cut and clamped in place for welding

                    All weld and filled with filler

                    Boat sides done grill back on

                    My dad doing the welding the mask is for show his the man who shuts his eyes and hopes he hits the spot

                    I had some fun with all the dust

                    I picture for all under side work as started that van on the lift I can seat underneath it

                    my dads little mig welder better know as MI as it takes no gas as died again he'll fix it again and it might live
                    Sliding door sill on and passage door sill done at long last just need a skim of filler and a lick of paint
                    Ah my missing bolt

                    Safety man is on the job the mask is for show his a close the eyes type

                    a lick of paint to stop rust

                    And the passage sill welding or the a star being formed

                    Fix the air box good buy rope and now my power steering is not leaking any more and Put in the second battery tray

                    Had a pock around under neat and I'm shocked to say it was solid as a rock under there so stone chip it Wednesday
                    e can you spot something missing in the photo

                    I put this back on today had it in the van hanging around so I put it back where it belongs makes the van cleaner looking

                    Started the camper van parts today as my dad said I had the BEEP of welding and bang the van
                    So did this well empty this first

                    I did this a while back wasn't happy with it so is came down sorry to my mate who helped me put it up

                    Made a frame to go around the sky light

                    and then started to make a frame on the side got this far and my dad had to go fix his car so that ended the days work well evening as he spent all day fixing the welder and starting into space

                    Cat found some where to sleep lazy cat still there

                    Made up all my sides and there well stuck on went though 2 tubes of a thing that's like tiger seal my dad said better to over do it then have it fall upon you in your sleep


                    Two parts of the roof done this stands are handy there for holding up plaster bored

                    Making the frames

                    This was a hard bit to make as its at the back of the van by the doors note the extra two bits in the middle there for the air vent I'm making to go on the right

                    This is where it sits

                    All up and waiting for the glue to set

                    I ran most of my 240V and 12V wiring the blue wiring is 240v fire proof wiring The black is 12V
                    The two plugs wiring on show here

                    a big ball of wiring for the fuse box's

                    the 240V lights wiring

                    My new bulk head

                    This is a part of the caravan that me and mate smashed to bits it my vent at the back to allow fresh air into the van parts

                    The hole of no return

                    Which turned into this

                    Inside all boxed in

                    By by old floor

                    Drying started or a lager room for getting rid of things

                      Using the VW to get some wood was a wee bit to long for the van :lol:

                      Insulation need some of that

                      In the walls

                      One working and are health and safe officer keeping an eye on the drills (My dad put a drill bit though is finger)

                      The big finger

                      Sliding door step

                      Keeping the insulation in place with a gas bottle almost drill a hole in that

                      Roof up was a right pain in the back side

                      Watch out below

                      Frame work up and all done


                      My cooker I think I remade this as i didn't like it there

                      Made my 3rd bed no pictures of it fold up out of the way but you get the idea

                      Good night all if it take my wight then it should be ok but its very tight up there

                      Well I got my A bar so I fitted it and my new number plate which I bought cause I made bits of my old one in my ice trip

                      And on the van and it looks nice on there and yes I have walked in to it and it dose hurt

                      All so I had a look around my grandads shed's and field and boy did I find stuff and I mean stuff going to have another look again but this trip I found a camper-van tolit, fuse box, a bit of work top just enough to do my work tops, sink well lots of sinks , fog lamps, camper fridge, a length of gas pipe, a odd looking thing that came of a 4X4, a few 3 ton car jacks and a 10ton jack, there is more stuff there but you need a day or two to find things.

                      And I fitted my yellow spots to my a bar not wired yet but I think I have enough lights ;D

                      My new work top got it for free and yes that's close to the handle so I have to trim it

                      A curtain rail above the sliding door hope to fit a curtain here soon must move that wheel been there for a long time now almost a year now

                      Oh my roof lights there orange and the side ones are white facing forwards and red backwards look nice at night


                      Yellow spot wired and working

                      I also cleaned my shed well I had help from my mate again I think his after something ;D and yes there is a car in there shame the van won't fit in door to low

                        I bought a electric window kit on ebay I must say what a good kit well put together only thing is the instructions where not so good had to figure out what to do but I got it in the end now windows go up and down and I can put the passage window up and down from the driver seat
                        Here is the motors in place didn't take may pictures as it was cold and I want it done before I froze in place and I must say ford over done the drivers door card fixing point :

                        Light switch

                        It going to be a long night crack out the food and drink

                        I worked on the lights and my mate who now as a black face worked in the corner singing I won't let the sun go on down me

                        Moving the plugs higher up cutting the hole with a grinder


                        Need a hammer to make it fit better

                        A bit more of the top

                        A hole for a plug sockets

                        Plaster board plug sockets holder thing

                        Wires

                        Now two plugs sockets

                        Just to check it works

                        Now the water a bit of cutting and chopping to the sink

                        Old belt
