    Last night (xmas eve)I picked up my Vito from painting/colour coding bumpers /mirrors etc.
    I bought the Vito about 15 mths ago and started a thread about converting it :xgrin: Cannot find it to update so started this one instead :xdoh:
    Over the mths it went from doing 2 days insulating/boarding it then got abandoned as I used it as a run around /lending it out to mates etc It came back with scratches on interior boards etc so a decision was made mths later to veltrim the back out :xgrin:
    Anyway a couple of mths ago we decided (PAUL AND ME/I ) to make the furniture and fit it (y)-Over the next few weeks we did nothing then decided to actually finish it off so another day and about 3 hrs later it was all done -just needed paint -Probably taken 5/6 days in total but over a 15 mths period :xgrin:
    I don't know whether to put graphics on the new paintwork it looks that good :xThumb: well pleased :xThumb:
    Anyway below are some pics from van to day/camper van

    No, but can be retro fitted -the bed is better/stronger made than a lot of pull tested ones --Not getting into arguments on the legality of doing so :xsad:

    Looking good.
    I'm looking around for a Vito or Viano to convert, in the new year.
    Can't make my mind up wether I should start with a nearly new Vito panel van or an older Viano!

    Cannot advise on witch but I love the vito as a every day driving vehicle /// I am even thinking of buying another lwb hi roof version to convert just for me and max / would be big enough although small/// at the moment I have five vehicles if I converted one I could manage with 2 or3

    Considering something like the vito to replace my zafira.
    Then I can zoom down to Benidorm, still use aires on the way, park in my underground parking area and get out and about on a few camping days :)
    Would need 5 belted seats though to cover us when use it as an everyday vehicle at home.
    I will await your "for sale" post...
