Hi there new to this forum and must say everyone is so helpfull and the knowledge of the members have is great and I have been helped out a lot here already :) .


I have a mk6 van project at moment that i am driving i bought it for £750 ..quite steep but the cleanist i could find and also on a y reg so no rust any were and was fairly straight. Its a 1.8 TD and is the 75 series.


so the project.... I want to make this van look half decent so first i started with the interior.

removed the interior completely inc rubber carpet. fitted from a donor car the sound proofing and carpet.

In went 2 Si wing backseats, matching door cards, center console with arm rest thingy, wood dash.


I then fully partishioned the cab from the back with mdf and then carpet tiled it in the cab this looks good and is good sound proofing also


here is a few pics


here is the van before the fitting of the front si bumper



here is a rear view of the van



here is the van with si bumper painted and fitted.. looks OK imo :rolleyes: loll

Will update with progress as i go.

£750 isn't steep ya tight northern git, lol! :pancake: Bloody good bargain I think for that year & condition. :thumb:


Yeah that 'wood' dash isn't going to convince anyone that it's real, bin it!


Great basis for a modded Van. Are you using it for work? If not, that safety beacon should fetch a good price on Ebay. :cheers:

hi niel this van is used for my work sorta .. it just gets me there loll


will take a better pic of bumper showing the spliter


thanks for the kind comments and help from you all.


today i fitted the wheels .... not to hard or a long job i hear you all say?


well maybe not :vangry: ... if the rear axle hadent been of centre (drivers wheel was rubbing the iner arch and pasenger had a big gap)


so i undone the u bolts and moved the bar over as far as i could but only gained a small bit of space on drivers side ..so of to halfords a i go and buy some spacers


this made the wheel miss the inerarch a lot better i finished it of by reshapeing a bit of the iner edge of arch with a big hammer loll .. both wheels now sit and are spaced even :thumb:


here are some pics with wheels on ... sorry pics are a bit dark but time i finished it was late.





will update as i progress
