Really Excited Part 2 now Sob Sob Sob

Turned up to collect and van and guy informs me rather sheepishly that there has been a problem witht the oil light this week. Said he had done 185 miles with light flashing on but now it has gone off and hasn't come on today....I admire his honesty, after all he could have sold me a duff van.

I had a friend who is a mechanic with me and he suggested that the guy get it fixed before I part with my money. But the guy was vague and said he was busy for the next two weeks. Therefore I have a pocket full of dosh (real cash!!!!) and no van!!!:(

Can anyone comment or indeed sell me a nice little T4 with rear seats...anything reallly just an OK camper with rear seats, I can do the rest up.....I live in Southampton so anything local would be excellent!

Boo hoo.

Have not got a huge budget at all ....up 2500 if it already had seats but want one as project as want to do it up to our own spec, but need seats as we have kids. Other than that we are not fussy at all.

Thank you for the comments its nice to know that you would have done the same.

Would ideally love Van before the summer hols so I can get away with the kids!

I have fitted a second row of seats, very cheap to do, seats of ebay around 40, bolts from VW 20 and if your flash 3 point belts will bolt straight in with fixing plates from just kampers. Hope you find a van, you should get one for that money no problem.

Hope you find one, would be good to see more vans around Southampton and not of the builders/plasterers variety, not that anyone ever seems to see me (eh boscombesurfer H:).

Good Luck and if I see anything local or on ebay will send a pm T:
