The van is very solid,at the time of renovation we replaced the front floors on either side/rhs arch/some repairs to main floor and top hat plus the refitting and blending of two original arches that had previously been cut out. Storms down motorways and effortlessly keeps up with modern traffic with this set up.

All mechanical work carried out by me
