Time for a little update about Sparky
Have done much to her until this month as I’ve been working and she needed a new screen and N/S sill welding , also MOT
Both them are done as is the MOT as of today .
Got my self a glazed SLD

Also a glazed N/S door
Fitted new glow plugs today as well as a wiper linkage as other one was very sloppy
Stay tuned for more updates

Fitted N/S rear glazed door today bugger of a job as Ford had changed the lock mechanism slightly so the later ones wouldn’t latch so had to change them for the ones on my old door
All on just needs tweaking

Where is the leak from mate?

This was a good read as I'm doing the same thing to an 06 van. Those floor mats look well neat. Did you say you lifted the actual flooring as well? I'd love to replace mine as the drivers side has a hole in it from previous owner and is obviously allowing any water to go through.
