Hey guys....

I'm loving this website and after spending the whole bank holiday weekend buying and converting my Ford Transit into a camper/day van i'm picking up some good tips.... Cheers!

I've added some pics (hopefully if i'v done it right) to show you how i've got on.... I'm pretty good with diy but not attempted a conversion before so i hope you wont be too critical and any help and advice would be greatly appreciated....

That's it for now... I'v rambled enough..
