    My first van (first diesel too!)

    Hi there, here's my baby.



    The vans great, just what i need and good looking too! No plans to change anything really as its got so much gear on already. Just make it look as clean and tidy as possible.

    I have already been active in the mechanical section, can anyone help?

    Also, anyone know why one of my headlight 'brows' is black and the other clear?

    Don't know if its normal or not but when you start the engine, it lurches the whole van a bit (even if you start with the clutch pressed in). It does the same thing when you switch off!

    Apart from the problem in the thread above, im really happy with it. Strange feeling driving a diesel though with the torque and rev / speed relations.

    Will get some pictures of my own up, once ive given it a good polishing.

    I didn't put 2+2 together at first, but yes it has had a little knock underneath the black headlight so this must have been used as a replacement. The other one is clear, not chrome, must be the way the photo came out.
