Hey guys we have just picked up a 1995 model XG panelvan. Bit rough around the edges, not too bad in the rust department but had been in a prang on the back left hand side. Anyway as all good pano drivers know before you do the outside you start inside

Anyway pictures are better then words so here they are:




New Head unit

Left windows down when it rained which is why there is a towel on my seat lol

JVC 6x9's for the door - temporary installation

Materials for the back install

Starting on the floor

Starting on the wheel arch covers

More arch covers

coming to the tail end of the first cover

Dummy Install

Dummy install with lid


Starting on the second arch cover

Got it pretty close to the arch's so not much space lost

Got too dark so this is as it stands as of tonight...

I also have a venom red BA xr6 and an XF ute but needed a new body shape for a project haha.

Will finish off the interior then it will be onto the body work and then ill need some decent power to move the 10 ton of timber in the boot ha.

Body will get a new respray of a dark metallic purple with lightning airbrushing in typical panelvan styling.
Im also trying to chase some old school bubble windows for the side and rear but if i cant find any ill either make my own perspex ones or weld up the holes completely and go windowless.

Engine wise ill probably do the same as my old ED, shaved head, au gasket, crow cam stage 3, tune, pacey extractors, custom dual exhaust etc etc.

Have 2 inch lowering bloack for the rear and lowered front springs from my ute, just a bit worried i might be too low on the front but ill cross that hurdle when i get to it
Also have a 3:4.5 LSD which will find its home behind a chrome diff housing


Just for a bit of wank factor here is a picture of my ute:

Hey thanks for the welcome,
Well the two arch covers are now done, just awaiting the two 2800watt powervox amps to arrive so i can mount them inside the boxes. On the weekend I'm hopefully going to nock the windows out and start on welding some panels in, then i can finish the inside walls and roof.

Had a few dramas with the van this week, alternator died so have an 85amp bosch in now instead of the 70amp mitsubishi P.O.S.

Also replaced all radiator hoses and belts for good measure.

Sorry not much of an update but ill get my act together on the weekend

Cheers

Jay
