morning all

after selling my beloved t4 3 weeks ago the hunt was on for a t5T:

2 weeks ago today i managed to buy a lovely 58 reg basic van for the camper conversion

the following monday she went straight to a local converter that i found and left it with them A:

10 days later it was fully converted and ready to come into my bodyshop





so wednesday night i started striping her for the colour coding





grille prepped and primed and my mate blower prepping up the bumpers



while he was doing that i decided i was going to paint the back doors to look like windows and do a strip on the bonnet to match up with the grille (not sure weather i like this yet) all done in mettalic pearl blackA:







grille





thursday night i manage to get the plastics primed up (doing the front bumper this morning)



last nights task was painting the roof, what a job that was, prepped up outside, into the booth and i had less than 2 foot to try and paint itH: 2 hours later it was done









tried on one of the new wheels to see what they look likeT:



quick couple of interior shots:)





so this weekends plan is paint all the plastics white get them fitted and do some polishing

next week ill be hitting it with the lowering stickLOL: and the seats and bed are of for the leather retrim

ill keep the pics updated and hopefully our first outing will be dubfreeze

hope you like

matt

cheers for all the comments guys

im still unsure about the bonnet but i will know better tommorrow when she is built upT:

i will be offering a colour coding service when mine is finished (wanted to work out the hours involved firstT:)

but looking round at prices i think i will be able to come in around the average price if not a little cheaper :)
