Thread: The new T4 project

  1. #1

    The new T4 project

    Got delivered to the unit today.



    Spec is high for a van.

    2.5 TDI with 197k miles but one owner with FSH
    Electric windows
    Electric mirrors
    Remote central locking
    Sunroof
    Window is side door plus 2 rear seats
    Still has all the racking and work bench in the back.

    Picking up the 19's this week.

    Already have these to go on.
    85mm lowering springs
    Pair of Rover 200 half leather seats on T4 bases
    Small momo steering wheel and boss
    Alpine stereo
    Bury touchscreen bluetooth kit
    19" flip down screen
    Playstation 2

    Need to clean it and see how much bodywork it need before it goes in for a colour change.

    Removed the builder look roof bars and fitted the 19's last night.


    Van does drive well but needs the injector pump timing doing but Dave at BVR will sorting that for me at some point.

    Tonight i turned to the pink paint and got the t cut out lol.

    Did the front wings to start and they came up very well.


    Did the front and back of the drivers side then my arm gave up. Slapped on a bit of back to black and it's looking a lot better.


    Going to see if the front torsion bar nuts have seized at the weekend so i can lower the front.

    I'd be lazy and machine polish it

    I'd soak the torsion bar nuts morning and evening for a week before i even tried to move them, they can be a *****.

    Got a bit more done tonight.

    Fitted my Rover 200 tomcat front seats.


    Dash all cleaned up and not to bad at all.


    Need to remove the phone kit and install my bluetooth setup.

    Did do a little bit more on the paint but rain was getting in the way.
