    Well the saxo is up for sale now, as I have got something bigger! Need it to ferry band gear around and I've always liked these....

    So yeah, I bought myself a van. A VW Transporter T4 '800 Special'. Its a 1994 on 128k miles, 1.9D. and really cool.

    haha sweet! A slightly different project for you now. I also have spotted that the progressive weight loss plan is well underway....

    How much did you pay for it?. Personally with that sort of mileage + rust i'd run it into the ground and get a newer one in better nick, no offense but you can't polish a turd, rolling it in glitter will not make it any better either....

    If you sell your VTR for a grand that'll be a decent (ish) van.

    I'm not gunna say how much I paid for it as thats for me to know! But i'm really happy with it, I knew I was going to get negative comments of the guys that can afford nicer things but it is exactly what i want and was within my budget. And its a new project to get my teeth into. Its already ply lined, got 2 extra seats int the back and has been owned by a mechanic so runs like new.
    EDIT - Also I had signed up to a T4 forum/owners club before buying it and new what to look for and know already that with the correct treatment these can last well over 300k miles. :salute:
