The wife took it rather well.

A couple of minutes silence, then "I should have known you'll get another one, it's been 4 years"
"One condition, I want it to be red with a white roof"

Result.
There again, she's had to put up with these on the drive over the last 10 years.

Stripped out scabby diy interior and binned that.




then polystyrene insulation and tinfoil stuck to every panel and the floor.



quick tip, if you've got insulation behind your panels, check it once a year or the condensation will rot your van from the inside.




I've got a willing helper at the moment, but can't get her to weld yet.



Not to exciting yet, got to replace both front arches and seatbelt location points to get MOT, and then I'll be able to drive to and from Nick's workshop.
This arch is the better of the two.




At least I've got the rear lights in and working.
Wife wants the van painted the colour coming through the primer on the engine cover.
