    I have kitted out three vans... a V4 Transit, an Iveco 60-10 and my current Iveco 35-12 Turbo Daily. None were/are ever quite finished...:winky:

    Current van is number 14, but 12 of the previous vans were selfbuilds, from FG360's to Furniture lorries, mini's to transits. So done my share of home building.

    Only done one, the transit I have now, but might look at doing another soon, or failing that I might even take on the challange of a narrow boat.

    Suppose I'd better add myself to the list. Our present Iveco 40-10 called Eclipse is our fifth van, first was a '79 Bedofrd CF that was rotten to the core (converted and reconverted about three times. 2nd van was a '83 CF which we converted then altered about three times. Next up was a '83 Freight Rover (converted only the once) followed by a '90 Highwayman which we reskinned, rewired, rebuilt.
