soduko's work horse

Postby soduko » Mon Apr 09, 2018 7:37 pm

hi all new to the forum and transit ownership
I wanted to start a progress thread as iv got one for my car and find it a useful source and way of remembering where things started.
anyway I brought my new van on the 6th of April 18 here she stands in the metal
Image
Image
Image

first job was to sort the back with a carpet
Image
Image
Image

id also noticed this odd looking part and after a little fishing in the bottom of the door found the loom
Image

iv ordered a new lens to replace it along with a dead lock and two plates for the rear door looms to try and combat hacksaw blades
ill post a pic once there here

apart from that iv really chuffed with the van its such a pleasure to drive compared to the citroen jumpy it replaces. more updates to come..........

hi mate I haven't got a picture of it but its a plastic piece that covers the lower hinge on the rear door passenger side, there's one on the drivers side so I assume its missing.

I am happy to post items :wink: if it's the part i'm thinking it's only the price of a stamp to post (which is a business expense :D ) so if I can get the part I'll let you know :D N
