The adventure begins here... So happy driving this home last week after so many months searching for something decent.

So this is my very first Van. It's a 1995 T4 and I love it. I've never played around with cars before or fitted anything out apart from my mums car aerial when I was about 14 and fitting a few car stereo's to my beat up old cars over the years.

I picked her up a week on Wednesday. Run's brilliantly (as far as I can tell). All that I've done to her is take our the back seats temporarily as we headed down to Portsmouth on Bank Holiday weekend and thought we might not have anywhere to stay. Our camp bed fits in a treat.

At first glance it looks like she is in good nick and just needs fitting out however there is a lot of work I want to do to her. She has not been insulated (apart from a shoddy job on the roof). So as a van she will stay until I get some more money in and then I'm going to strip her bare, sound proof, insulate and wire her up sticking up full panel boards and carpet her. 3/4 Rock n roll bed in the back with some units. Power I'd like 2 leisure batteries, split charger, solar charger and not sure if to hard wire in a hook up connector or just use an extension cord thingy as can't see me using it too much. I was going to change the passenger seat to a double, but when it was raining last week I loved being able to slip through into the back to get my coat on and sort out my bag etc. I want to tidy up the cab area too, Fresh sprayed dash and panels, Going to try and fit a double din head unit so I can get apple carplay, fabricate a new facia cover for the central console to tidy all the gaps up and maybe look at making something that will make use of the space under the centre console. Blue Tooth and digital installed and then look to see if electric windows and central locking is a possibility or too much of a head ache.

Anyway here she is... Gwen!
