Hi allT:
After what felt like a life time of a wait my 140 swb finally arrived 6 weeks ago
So thought i best start taking some pics as things are changing and my wallet is getting lighter a lot quicker than i expected:eek:


Bog standard





Then came the 20" Lenso's dropped on Vmaxx courtesy of Merseyspeed





Fitted some front fogs Caravel grill and black vw badge not wired the fogs yet will get round to it before its first MOT in 3 yearsI:








Last weekend had a go at putting the ply floor in decided to make this in three pieces thought it might be easier to just lift either side to run wires in when i have decided what i want in the back.:*












To be continued ..............

Ye dealer bought bit pricey tho!

I've got my eye on one of these front spoilers think they suit the facelift well

Ok here's a quick update dropped the van off at AJC conversions in good old Stalyvegas this week for a three day interior makeover.

I met Andy the week before to discuss what i wanted him to do and about me being completely OCD regarding the work to be carried out on my van!(believe me i am a picky b!) fair play to the guy this is the first time i have had any work done on a vehicle where the guy doing the job actually gives s**t how it turns out!! cheers mate top jobT:T:T:T:T:T:T:T:T:T:

so this is what i went for

2 side windows with 90% tint
Full rear insulation
Full height rear quarter panels
Full line out in anthracite
ceiling panels in black faux suede
19 inch pyle view drop down with built in dvd usb/sd card media player
Rear courtesy lights deleted
8 dioder led down lighters on two savage switches
split charger
leisure battery
240 inverter
3 pin socket
12v socket
battery tester

Hopefully tomorrow i will have a crack at fitting my caravelle rear rails and leather seat bed weather permitting:*

To be continued....

Ok heres a little update of what I've been up to ... God damn its getting cold out there:eek:

Got round to installing the caravelle rail system i bought from Colin @ oxford T5 along with a triple rear seat, turned out to be a more time consuming job than i originally had thought:* don't think i would do another unless i had a helper and some way of getting the van off the ground a little higher:rolleyes:


Apologies for the quality took these at night with phone

First fit of rear seat believe me these seats are damn heavy !!




Today i got round to making a start on floor I chose Gerflor vinyl floor tiles in zebrano chocolate
Yet again the bloody cold weather and early night fall got the better of me so i had to cut it short:mad:

I will probably get this finished over the xmas period while I'm off will post some clear daytime pics when its finished *<:)>

Cheers guys T: the switches are from this guy plenty of designs to go at

The floor is from this place

These are long 3mm thick vinyl tiles you just put a primer on your floor then peel the backing off then stick downI:
supposed to be hard wearing come with a 10 year guarantee..we shall see...
