UPDATE :cry:

This happened to my baby 3 weeks ago

I was gutted, side swiped by a Renault Clio

On a positive note the vans been approved for repair at the garage of my choice and as I know the guys they said if I take out the full rear install they will quote for it but spray the entire van WAHOO
So taking this into consideration I am having the full van painted in Porsche Purple and any nasty rust, dents or imperfections taken out.
What do you think?

Seeing I have those wheels to go aswell I see it quite fitting that I should go this colour.

And last weekend I picked up these little beauties to finish the inside, can't wait to get them in and working

UPDATE

Well tonight I have had the intermediate driveshaft changed as mine was goosed, threads mulled on the bolts and the splines bent out of shape.
Started to get a knocking a few weeks back and realised 2 of the 6 shaft bolts had been spat out OUCH

Took pics of the new and old comparison so you can see the differences

Just caught up with this thread, absolutely gutting about the side swipe, but as a result having a purple paint finish will look freakin' awesome! :cool:
Any idea when you're having the work done?
Interior upgrades are very cool too.
Oh and it wouldn't be a proper post without mentioning...Porsche Wheels 😁

Gutted for the side swipe but glad to hear it's getting sorted - could so easily have been written off! The Porsche purple (and matching rims) will look awesome - can't wait to see the finished result :cool:

UPDATE

So today was a rubbish day, had to take out the cupboards of the van ready for the bodyshop to have it in February, going to do a few tweeks when she goes back together which I'm excited for.
