W638 Vito Conversion
« on: January 05, 2017, 11:52:06 AM »
Howdy! I'm starting out on the conversion of an old 2002 Vito that I'm using as a daily driver and as a family camper for short breaks and festivals.

It used to be an old NHS transport vehicle and only has 29,000 on the clock.  2l Diesel, so nice and driveable.

Currently I've stripped out the rear seats and had the bodywork touched up.  Now working on the plan for the rear bed/dining area.

I love the fact that you can do this kind of thing yourself and really get it right.  Lots of people seem to be doing it recently and I'm quite happy to jump on the band wagon.

I'll be posting up progress as i go.

If you keep everything portable and modular, you can remove it or rearrange it to suit any given situation.

Modular is what we are thinking.
I'm in the middle of making 2 side boxes to go over the wheel arches. The rest of it is going to be pull out.

I've got some decent seats sitting on the unwin track now and its been up and down the country with the family in it.
