Camo Berlingo Van
#1
This is my 1st van and and bought it around 3 month ago, only bought it to get mine and a mates pit bikes around. Got the van nice and cheap for £300 due to needing a little work and having 250k miles on the clock. To be honest when i bought the van it felt awful to drive! knocking and banging.

1st jobs were:
* fit new front strut and 1 was leaking,
* new ball joints,
* new track rods,
* fit different wheels
* new steering wheel

Van drove like new after that Big Grin Next up was to sort the back out as it was a right mess!!! Here are a few pics of what it was like after new parts were fitted.

I tried all sorts to get the sticky stuff off the old stickers what was on the van but i was having no luck with that at all so decided to go for something different and sticker up the an myself :whistle:

Then got myself a recovery light for the top and bought some new seats Cool

Next up was tidying up the inside and i also bought some coilovers and had the rear beam lowered. Quite surprised how well the rear axle came apart for the age and mileage of the van. Anyway here is how it is now.

Coilovers and astra front splitter:

Hm...

Sorry, but I only see a car in the first 7 pictures, then a few snaps of interior bits.
What's with all the landscape pictures?

As soon as I saw the thread title I knew it'd be you Chris! You know what I think, love it. Seats are a nice mod, Got a WRX seat for mine that I've not got round to fitting yet.
