They were all SWB, we didn't get many Mk 2 LWB vans down here...

Hi Philip,
I have changed my rear axle and front hubs on my van, (Ford Mustang Axle/ Falcon hubs), so now i have a common PCD.(Our Transit came out here with the same PCD as the UK vans) Minilite have never made a wheel to fit the MK1/2/3 Transit as their wheel centres are too small to accomodate the STD Transits PCD.

Finally it's legal and almost finished ( are they ever...? ). For it's debut i went to a local car show ( Galaxy of Cars ) in the morning and a friend of mine talked me into doing a cruise with his American/ V8 car club in the afternoon.... Very happy, didn't miss a beat. A few very minor things i want to sort out... Image

It looks fantastic dude. Thanks for bringing it to Concours last weekend. I think you need to put a few shot up of the interior showing the Halda and 2 way radio. I didnt get any photos of the inside at all. Camera battery went flat after the Mrs said it was charged up. :roll:
