Just joined, have bought a 98 t4 panel van and will be on my way to converting, hopefully on the road in may, in whatever state.

Have interior designed, has anyone got any recommendations on fitters?

Another thought is window fitting in sliding door, cheaper to buy 2nd hand door with window already fitted?

Sure I'll have many more questions and will try to keep up a build thread once work commences!!!

welcome along......
Ive just done a bit of a conversion myself , same van , same year. did almost all the work myself though - mostly due to funds!!! but its worth considering making units yourself, and also buying 2nd seats etc and having them refurbished...good luck with the conversion!!!

Hi all, just driven the van back from Surrey, huge hole in the front box, and back box hanging loose! Very noisy to say the least. Quick trip to the local tyre n exhaust specialist (Harold's tyres, penrith) and its like a new van!

Now just to fix the rear doors, trip out existing ply, insulate walls, reply, clean, then to start on conversion!!
