Modern Times 164706_1598674484829_1175024633_31399609_1570526_n


that's usually the way with this one i have a basic plan and i'm really trying to stick to it.
still got to do the matching interior yet but first it to get her regoed
so i need to
remove 3 speed manual and fit auto
fix rust
organise 2 more 15 inch tyres
and fit new rear lights

then the fun begins
full respray (white again)
ltd dash with a small screen for camera where the climate control would be
line the rear with carpet and hints of polished wood
a decent stereo
and a turboed motor of some description (leaning towards a au motor and auto box but worried about strength)

Don't think it's that hard to by pass the smart lock, or program new keys to it!

Things are looking good. Always interested in seeing what has been done to the van. Like the Fairlane front, they look great. Keep up the good work
