Hey all, thought I'd add the van that my wife and did up together, storey with the van starts with me moving into my first flat in Australia in 2001, found this van becoming part of the vine fence in the back yard, asked the flatmates about it and it used to belong to a previous flatmate who they were still in touch with. So little time later The guy gives me a key and signs it over for free happy to see someone doing something with it. so after removing it from the fence and bit of investigating turns out the only real issues with it are the clutch drive plate and the tyres, replaced them and drove it around for a couple of years. by this time I was dating my now wife and we decided to clean up the van for her to get around in so with no mechanicals requiring repair it was pretty straight forward so here are the pics which speak for them selves.

so after we got it back to metal, we gave it a good clean before i primed it ready for top coating, i had a fiend who was a painter so we were able to get it into his paint booth for a proper finish
