Hello all.

After a long time thinking about it I decided to get a T5.
Went for a panel van to put my own touches.
The van started its life as an RAC van for 5 years before I got it.

The van - 2.0tdi 140 Swb with 157k.

The plan - spend all my money 馃槣

Here are a few pics before I got it and some before the work started.

When I got it





Then I started removing the old stuff.



And today March 2017







The interior is going to have a big revamp with new interior and seats. Will add the list later on when I have full details and pics.
But already found out that money goes quick on these.

Thank you. I have to admit the van is a great cruiser wth the 6 speed box.
Just need to get the interior done so I can use it with the kids.

Well, a lot of time has passed on and forgot to update my little project.

Last update was in March 2017. In April 2017 I took the van to Absolut5 who did the the work on the rear, speakers, windows and fitted my kombi seats.



















A few months later I replaced the standard 16鈥 with a set of 17鈥.



Around 2018 i made a few more changes. This time added some wheel arches covers a set of 18鈥 Sportlines and some decals.



After the van really needed to be lowered and I really wanted a set of b14鈥檚. But some unexpected bills stopped me from doing them until December 2019.



For 2020 I really fancy a new set of wheels, get the seat covers replaced with a decent trim.

Hi. Not my plan. It was hard enough to get into many car parks and hated the soft/bus like ride/handling.
B14鈥檚 are a dream and don鈥檛 want to change that, apart from maybe a set of 19鈥.

I remember doing the suspension on our van and it transformed something that was really clumsy and wallowy into something that was actually nice to drive.
What 19's do you fancy?

I really like the veemann v-fs39 but only the 20鈥 are load rated for my t32.

Looking at rotiforms kps in Matt/grey finish or the Six.

Think black wheels don鈥檛 suit my van at the moment, just too much black at the mo.

Great! Not much out there that I really like. I only got the sportlines because they were good value and had brand new tyres. Will see what happens.
