We have just picked this white 1.9 104 up, thought we would treat it to some TLC, not many of these vans are cared for in the first few years, this 1 was owned by teeside council and has come to us with 74,000 miles and in really good condition but I don't think its every been waxed in its life!!!!!




obviously we are doing this to sell on at some point but we will treat it like a customers van and it will get all the attention it deservesT:

the plan is full body make over, caravelle front and rear bumpers, bigally's sportline chin spoiler,parking sensors, side skirts & rear canyards, de-badged caravelle grille bonnet filled & flushed, rear spoiler, -60mm lowering springs, 20" RS4 grey & polished alloys, etc
