Considering the mods you've got planned looks a good place to start,reasonable price too.Never seen a set of rear lights as sun bleached as those!,good seats too.Looking at "supervan1"pics a lot of the rot around the arch/footwell area will be new fabrication for front wheels/tyre combo anyway.

If that mats as good as the seats it's almost possible that could return you outlay on Van!,two things that sell for silly money look good in pics,there was someone on here looking for a lhd custom dash panels aswell,does look a winner for your purpose..
not sure if its crossflow or v4, but engine and box will be sellable as well, i have a friend that bands steels as well, so you know whats happening to the wheels with the original caps for now, i'm probable going to put something modern under the bonnet for now, and a mk7 axle to give me a good ratio, while i'm sorting the bits i need for conversion, may as well make use of it for the time being if its not to far gone

Tailgate will keep the rain off when working on drive train,same with side door,although you didn't want one,would make access to running gear a lot easier. Lift up back also means your not gonna get rubberneckers leaning on your doors to see what it's running.
the side door will probably get replaced with a panel to make the shell more rigid, if it had 2 side doors i would have kept them, but 1 needs to go, will get my mate to do a wrap of the tailgate to make it look like twin doors
well the van at the start of this thread didn't happen, the seller never got back to me, but i found another and made contact, agreed on 1000 Euro for it, collect 5/6 april all being well, not to far away from me in kent, its near Lille, google maps says just over 150 miles.
aussiebob: Hi Conrod all the best for 2019 the strips look the part please let me know when you have sorted out the final details with them and i will arrange payment for a set. Regards
