just started a conversion on a 2011 Vauxhall Vivaro.
So far I have removed the tow bar and fitted rear parking sensors,removed the dodgy racking,flooring and ply lining, thinned out and rerouted the wiring loon,fitted a pair of limo tint windows to the rear doors.
Blimey Mike, you don't take much of a break from one to the next ! Out of interest where do you source your vans from ?
I don't source my vans from any particular place and usually have to travel for straight low mileage vans.I usually have to look at quite a few before finding the right van for converting. This van is a 2 owner,118k van with full history, first owner was a water bottle company so never worked hard.

had a steady few hours today.
I have cut the flooring so thats ready to go down tomorrow once I have carpet lined the step,nearside rear arch and side step areas.
Spent a couple of hours fitting the seat swivel. I can usually fit these in 15 mins but toady was a real pain as one of the bolts had seized solid. They protrude through the floor by about 30mm so are often rusty but today was something else. I ended up grinding it of level with the fixing and winding it out with my windy gun.
Tomorrow should see the new floor and flooring down.

got a bit more done this morning.
I have cut the hole and fitted a mushroom vent.
I have also made the patterns for the ceiling. This van and all subsequent ones will have a two piece ceiling instead of the previous three piece design. The cost is the same but it should look better.
