My fist van Mk7 Jumbo

Postby OfficiallyColin » Sun Aug 04, 2019 10:24 pm

So this giant thing is mine now. It’s 2006 and only 100k on the clock.
Mechanically it’s sound but there’s a few cosmetic bits I’m sorting and a few extras I’m adding to it myself.
And it’s a 7 seater so the cargo space will be reduced slightly and the crew section will be turned into a “camper” layout with two seats pointing forward, two backwards and a removable table.

I have no idea what the hell I’m doing.
Let’s just hope I don’t make a shite of it :wink:

Step one was to install a radio and reversing camera.
I’m not used to driving anything bigger than a Caddy so I’d like it if I didn’t reverse into anything

Patched two spots in the roof where the rust got bad this morning. Luckily I have a warehouse at work that I can just about fit half of my van into long enough to get out of the rain.

Put in a secondary fuse box today to hook up extras like lights over the rear and side doors and also extra LEDs in the cab and cargo area for the dark evenings.
