Perfect - thats what i need.

I am actively on the hunt for a base van.
Something with a good paint job, body and engine.

Let me know if you know of any!

I have spent hours online looking at different layouts.

Decisions decisions!

OK so today may be the day !

This evening at 6:30 I am off to view a potential van.

It is a Vw 1000 TD SWB 1896cc
Panel van
DIESEL!

The chap has put a new engine in this vehicle and it is running up 70k miles.
questions 1) why would someone put in a new engine? are there things that i should be looking out for ?

The chap who is selling it has many accessories on the van also.

Question 2) I have heard that insurance may be high UNTIL it is converted.
This is an obvious intensive to get on with it!
Any ideas who i should contact with regards to insurance companies?



I am fortunate enough to be going with a good friend who is a mechanic.
ALSO
It may be possible that Dave from this forum, Friends with Martin may be able to come and have a gander also.
More eyes the better!

Slightly nervous but excited!

Catch ya soon

Just went to see the van.

I would have to make sure i get a tetanus jab before i do any work on it!
Engine was lovely and clean but sounded like a bag o spanners.

Keep your eyes open!

Re: The NEW dorset meet

More help needed.

I am wanting to disconnect the rear courtesy lights from the main battery and have they work only from the leisure battery.
I have some 11a auto cable and a kettle on the boil if any one wants to help.

Located just off columbia road.

Cheers
