    Re: custom bedford ca?

    bedford ca freak,
    Id love to put some up, but i havent got the equipment or knowledge to do so, There is a couple of pics of the van on the nsva website as i bought it (see older models option, mines the green n white camper between the scooby doo van).if you private message your email address to me, i could send some as it is now to you.
    The van still has an mot on it till may i think, it starts first time, and runs as sweet as a nut but as i say, there is a bad judder coming from i think, the clutch.
    Ive started the bodywork before all the bad weater came in, the front part of the roof (its a camper), scuttle panel, front wings are in primer, the front panel is currently off, its been sand blasted, etch primed and partly repaired too. Unfortunatly it has sat on my driveway through the winter, so where the primer has been applied, little bits of surface rust are popping through due to primer not being waterproof.
    cheers. paul

    Sadly though, i think ill end up selling mine on too once ive got the body in primer. The clutch is (at least i think its the clutch) juddering like a *******, and i have no funds or real time to finish it as i was made redundant about 2 weeks after i got hold of it
    my mate paddle did it for me,looks even better in a3 size!.reckon there a very under used van.a mate deals with them so i may get a cheap series 2 cal van and mild rat look it.i love em!!

    I guess it's a marmite front. Had to be extended to fit the extra 2 cylinders in, and I just made it a bit different!

    It was taken from my garage when I left over a disagreement on rent, I wasn't in a position to store it at the time and I don't know the location of it now. Would love to find out where it is.

    Funny but I don't remember that front (and it's something you wouldn't forget).
