I've done loads of engine conversions in the past. As for suitability depends on engine & experience in several key systems :wink:

the thing is with these gangs that rob them, have a set of genuine plates to put on them once they are far enough away they will replace them and then the anpr cameras round the country wont pick up its a stolen van :(


we are a cctv country and every camera should pick something up even motorway ones


a few weeks ago a friend of mine (owns a demo company ) had 4 attachment robbed in daylight using a trailer they stolen from a company i subby for :!: and because it is a reputale company no questions asked

Hope you find it after all the time and effort you put in. With it being black I think you've got the best chance finding it and a quick look underneath if it's locked up will confirm it's yours
