Full service history with a file with everything it’s had over the years, I assume it has high spec dash.

Aye I was dubious at first but it’s no too bad, think it’s all the hydraulic oil that’s seeped through the floor has protected it.

Only 240 air con :( 2 windows down 40mph, at least I can now do 40mph and more :P searched for months for that colour :lol: :lol: I really wanted dark grey or black but couldn’t pass on this at the price I paid.

It’s only a wee 85 but the smile on my face when I overtook bicycles was priceless.

Yes ned you can’t go wrong with loads of oil weeping out of a service van you just need to spread it everywhere we had a mk1 transit service van and everywhere the oil weeped out underneath was as good as new everywhere it didn’t spread to was rotten as peach.

Aye I’ll be crawling under it over the next few weeks and getting some protection on, just need to work out how to get rid of the oil smell, it came from an agricultural supplies and repair company.

Need to sell ol’ lucifer next week :cry:

I’m sure the paint fumes might mask it a bit, I can actually taste the oil on my lips

Nice little van there Ned, let's hope you don't visit me as I'll likely swap all the nice bits over when you go for a poo :shock: :lol:

No second side door though, I'm bet disappointed :mrgreen:

Although it sounds like the price and condition we're too good to resist. Plus it is high spec ish so less money needed there, although will you have the required budget of 15000gbp spare for the lights and horns :?: :D

I looked at twin sld but not very practical as I need as much racking as I can shove in there :lol:

Only having one sld means you canny swap number plates and send me home with asbo :lol: :lol:

Hmm more lights and horns, now your talking, im not going to do much yet as I’ll see if it gets me through the winter then decide whether to keep or sell, I’m dragging my feet swapping stuff as I’ll be sad when lucifer goes :cry:
