gday from NSW Central Coast noobie

Post by DUCKO on 26/1/2010, 1:14 am

gday.... my name's Rod im 39 and ive just bought my first van. (in nov)

a mate of mine was right into vans in the mid 80s and had a couple of EX show vans (cant think of the names)
one was a brownish HT shaped van that was decked out wiith a mini bar,shag, velour and murals and it was called somthing fantasy

i allways wanted a van but never got one (although i have built some tuff ute's and cars).

anyway i got me a 1995 XG Van with low ks and im going to turn it into an XD or FE LTD Van.

im also thinking about changing the barn doors to tail gate's (any one done this that could give me some pointer's would be great)

and where do i get bubble windows for the side's

cheers Rod

thanks for that... ive done the front swap heaps of times its all bolt on, done the ZL/FE dash into an XE ute too (bit of mucking aroud but well worth it)

id love to see if someone has done the tailgate conversion.

im also thinking off doing the wagon rear seat conversion too

im not a ford or holden man... i just like cars no matter what badge its got Very Happy

i chose the ford because its the latest model i could get that could be modified to look like an older van. although i would have liked an XH lol

its all stock as a rock 4Ltr OHC auto with bench seat... where on the coast are you??
