I've entered Van of the Month this month on the Splitscreen Van Club Site!

You can vote here: http://www.ssvc.org.uk/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=79082

New engine is in 1600tp with twin kadrons and a bike can for an exhaust! Sounds mental!

So I think its about time I updated this! My van has been hidden away for a little while enjoying a rest over the winter!!



I had a few little bits done to it! Like..
Sorting out the sound system! I now have BASS! Which makes me happy!

It had been sitting for two months in my Dad's garage and my mate Mark seemed to make A LOT of mess while sanding down his crew cab project so it looked like this!



But a quick wash and a dry with my leaf blower and it was looking all shiny again!
Applied some new stickers!



A quick look underneath and its all still looking good bar a bit of mud!


Started cleaning up some old tinware I had laying around to eventually be painted up and go on my engine but lack of time stopped this happening this winter.


Bought myself a polished stainless 3 bow rack from Aircooled Accessories at Dubfreeze! just to feed my shiny addiction!



And then built up and on!
