Van no3

The new project......

Unfinished project picked up from eBay.


My plan was to build a really nice Zetec conversion on the Alex chassis.

But now it's home and I've had a good look I feel I should carry on the nice work and make her a nice standard van.

I'll get some more pictures before I ask for your thoughts.

But she is nice.
