its not finished yet but decided to take my van out of the unit and go to the west yorkshire meet at xscape tonight.
Good to meet everyone and sorry for not being able to stop on for something to eat.

well the van was originally a white X pack panel van and since march iv been working long hours at night on her
there are still some jobs to do but shes nearly there as you can see.
iv done loads to the van but i'll just list the biggest things done so not to bore you all

All door handles removed and new sections welded in.
Every door is now operated by an 8 channel remote that pops open each door at the press of a button later it will operate the windows and electric start.
Rear tailgate shaved and smoothed
Rear bumper has been extended by 4" and number plate recess intalled
Caravelle interior, door cards and dash sprayed with special matting paint (looks like leather) and trimmed to match the re trimmed cream leather and perforated black Audi s line seats
DVD system front and rear
19" dotz
80mm phat side bars
and after all of that painted in vw black magic paint which has a lovely blue metalic when the sun hits it

all the work and fabricating was done by myself and lee except the trimming which was dealt with by our own trimmer who did the front and rear seats in 4 daysT:

i should make it a Competition for who spots the most mods

Going by the pics (even though they can sometimes be deceptive) that's one of the best overall T4s I've ever seen - VERY well thought out and proves the point that less really IS more

These guys have just lowered my van, and did a cracking job by the way T:, so I got to see this van in the flesh so to speak. I wasn't keen on this bus for two good reasons. 1) it made mine look **** :( and 2) I could actually feel my wallet kicking me in the back pocket demanding that I spend a boat load of money :eek:. Honestly this bus is gorgeous and a real credit to the work they do there A:. I will be back with you shortly for more work doing Andy T: T: T:

just to answer your questions

the paint we buy in from a paint specialist that visits us on a weekly basis and we add a matting agent to it to get the effect
