Pic as promised Image a vast improvement considering you couldn't get in the back for wheels parts etc but a long way to go interior wise till I it's on the to do list after intercooler install, suspension upgrade and lift still in the process of planning the interior to combine both form and function :roll:

Just went out and fitted the exhaust, dinotrol'ed behind first
Image
Picked up a multivan two way fridge of another member, even have the power socket already fitted for it. Kitchen wise, the wife and i have decided to go for a detachable multivan kitchen, it's nice to keep it all original. Will see how big the fridge is in the unit, before i decide what to do with this one. Need to wait til April though, want it now!!!!! :lol:

Lloydy - are you putting another pipe of the end of that silencer to vent it out the side of the van? I hope so :wink:

Coming along very nicely!
