Wink Operation pigs ear to silk purse, Envy's new wheels

Ok after much searching finally found myself a Vito. Not the best history, not the best looked after, certainly not the nearest (Preston!), but the best price and spec I could reach too
Its been at home for a week now and all I did in the 1st week was this:




The interior was grim, and all surfaces were APC'd and plastic washed. Seats were wet extracted (yukky water or what!)





The rear was like this:



And now its like this:


I'm pretty sure I've not got room for my stuff and a water tank! If any of you have pics of your Vito's I'd love a look to get ideas for myself

Exterior pics in a min.......

The exterior now as was:



During:





Afters, not perfect but a step in the right direction...



Think its going to take me a while and need to get off the roof rack as it sounds terrible on the motorway. Going to get the mechanicals 100% and work on what appears to be terrible fall out (might get some shares in a clay manufacturers!) before I get it sign written.

Thanks for looking.

Double sliding doors will be very handy, as you can build a rack in the middle of the van to be accessed from each side as needed.

Get an upright tank and fit it behind the sliding doors creating a second bulkhead, then a set of shelves each side in the back, alowing a central isle for things like pressure washer etc.

That roof rack should fetch a fair few quid on Ebay aswell

Very good tips thanks and yes think thats where the roof rack will go. Its heavy duty though so will need to wait for some "burly" helpers to get it off!

Mate, i had the same roof rack on my vivaro. I got my dad to take it off for me. The bolts are a ***** to get to and it wieghs a ton. I drove mine back from leeds to warwickshire(near gaydon) and the noise that thing makes is insane. Its so much better for getting it off. I got 120 for mine on ebay. Dont expect much more than that.

Anything is a bonus! I reckon it probably does weigh a ton too
