Here are some pics of my 17th transit :)
A 100/t280 low roof on an 05 plate
Brought as a non runner :arrow: fuel pump,
I then got it picked up and taken to Dieselhead (Tim) for a manual pump conversion,
Tim did some welding and a few other bits to it then had it mot'ed,
All of which I was very happy with :)
Cheers to Tim and Andy aka (Andypdq) who had the idea of a manual pump for a transit 8)

Since these pics were taken I have taken of the roof rack and done a few bits of paintwork repairs to it,
I also got some mk7 wheel covers and now looks much better :)
As usual its work in progress :)

Yip, have stayed away after other mk1s started turning up! The success of my first show could never be repeated with any others :) I am hopeful for next year and everything running though, but congratulations :)

Little update for me, my old mk6 workhorse I bought recently is hopefully going soon, someone I know might want it for £350, it was even more rotten than I thought and got to the point I was expecting to breakdown every time I went out lol

So I've treated myself to a ex AA mk7 which I love, only had it a few days and done loads to it already lol, cleaned all behind arches etc to prevent rusting (will be waxoyling it at weekend), cut out all the unused wiring and replaced the blown fuse 72. plated holes in roof and removed roof vent/fan, removed AA racking and front ply lining and today I just fitted a nice double din with hands free and dab

Still loads to do, need new plylining kit, remap and speed limiter removal, colour coded mirrors, black eye headlights, tints, wheels etc etc

Anyway here she is
