UPDATE

Almsot finished the cupboards, a made 1 miss cut that I'm not happy with so ordered a replacement panel so that in turn is preventing me putting the top onto the wardrobe end, for now as you can see it's almost all completed ready for the appliances and electeics to be carried out

I dont know about your t4 stock horn but the one in our van sounded like something from a kia picanto!
I was almost embarrassed to blast anyone . 😔

On one of my previous cars, someone cut me up so I blasted the horn only to be met with a sound that resembled "I'm so sorry for nearly hitting you", it actually made me laugh and diffused the situation rather promptly 😂

It's been a longtime but little progress has been made lately due to work commitments.
I have however fitted this little addition to the cupboards...

UPDATE

Today I serviced the van, she was well overdue and really quite filthy tbh.
I removed the foam behind the airbox, derestricted the airbox by removing the inlet tube both outside and inside the box base, added a larger intake pipe dorect to the side vent, once this was done I added the Green Cotton Filter.
The almost choked EGR system has now been removed completely and blanked at the manifold with a new smooth flow tophat pipe.
All old Vac Lines have been replaced with silicon hoses, many had been rubbing for ages and very very brittle.
New oil filter and oil, new pollen filter and fuel filter.
Van now drives so much more smoothly and feels more responsive.
