My Mk7 140ps Crew Cab conversion Jumbo

Postby furnitureman » Sun Dec 12, 2010 5:56 pm

Hi all i have finaly got round to uploading some pictures of my crew cab conversion hope you like.
Image
This is how the van looked when i collected it from the dealers.
Image
This is after i had side windows fitted
Image
As above
Image
This is the crew / kids area
Image
Forward facing triple bench seats
Image
Rear facing twin seat this used to be the front passenger seat.
Image
Front dvd screen built into new over cab storage box.
Image
Rear dvd screen built into rear bulkhead
Image
Under table dvd player with signal splitter and fm radio antena for use with fm headphones or through vans speakers
Image
New front single passenger seat
Image
Rear load area with adjustable tie down rails just under 8 feet long fully insulated
Image
Lining of sliding door
Image
Reversing monitor.
Image
Switch for swaping between rear view camera and tow bar camera.
Image
Twin reversing cameras top one is angled to point towards tow bar making reversing upto a trailer very easy and also both corners of the van are visable so helps with parking this system also has parking sensors fitted so you get distance bars on the screen as well as beeping when you get close to anything, the bottom camera is on permamently as rear view camera for general driving couples to the full colour monitor this makes seeing behind such a big van very easy indeed both cameras have night vision as well which helps with parking in the dark.

nice job there pal,looks very well put together with the factory seats!
i too like the reverse camera,been thinking of getting something like that for my minibus,i just find you cant see how close you can go when reversing with a jumbo by looking at the mirrors coz the bloody things so long and before you know it youve hit the neighbors car!

Thats why i fitted the angled camera its from a vw or something like that and was designed for fitting in one of the hand holes just above the numberplate, works a treat for getting into tight parking spaces.

Hi Belly i made a frame from 2inch 4mm thick box section welded together then bolted through the vans side frames then bolted the old steel bulkhead to that that gave me a safe area for the kids and somewhere very strong to bolt the seatbelts from, glad you like it.

"Big Blue" looks really great, love the colour and the work you've done.

Also noticed the side window behind the driver has sliding openers at the top, is this a Ford window or from someone else?

Regards,

Paul

Being a cabinet maker and upholsterer amongst other things i doubt it would pose too much of a problem :D
