A far bigger problem with T4s now is hidden body rot - lots of it.

Many T4s, even some good looking ones are old bangers / money pits.

Caveat emptor
Noted Hobbyhorse. Is this an issue with interior spaces (in the walls/behind fridge etc) or elsewhere?

Actually my biggest concern now having talked with the owner are the missing cooker and sink. That's almost a deal breaker for me as initial searches have proven these to be very hard to find (original ones), and if I'm going to begin messing about installing non-original bits I may as well go for a conversion. It's either stock Cali or something else (for me), especially the interior.
