    Finally I HAVE GOT IT :LOL:hope to start converting it in the next 3 weeks (y)I bought it a couple of weeks ago but been waiting for the bumper etc colour coding (y)Just got to finish this old bus and get it off my drive then get rid of the Ambulance I bought to convert before this turned up -Then we will have a good crack at the relay (y)Already got the first job in mind ,that;s to disconnect the security locks on the side and front doors-Bloody pain if you get out and leave keys inside and the door shuts -bingo locked out :(Will give it a good looking at once all the inside is stripped ready for insulation

    Can't wait to see it progressing. Will you disconnect all the locks or just one so you can always get back in but there is some 'security'

    Nice looking van there Terry & should make a great conversion.(y)

    As regard to the security locks, would it not be better to secure a spare key somewhere safe outside the van?

    NOT EVEN LOOKED AT IT-it's parked out side and not turned a wheel -Until this bus is done and off the drive I am not looking at it or I will crash into the van and leave the bus (I wont take a lot of persuading:D)

    Terry, This may be not what you had in mind but we have Vauxhall (aka Traffic) and if you lock the vehicle with side door open it locks the others but leaves the side door free, which can be locked manually from inside - not sure but think it disarms the alarm???
