    Thinking of swapping to a van!

    After seeing a van in this months Total Vauxhall mag, Been thinking of buying a mk4 Astra van and swapping as much as I can over from my current car seen here http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...d.php?t=222449 over to a van.

    Getting hold of a van isn't a problem as my dad works for a company who refurbs veihcles after they have been on lease.

    Think that 90% of the bits on my car will swap over, Will also have to do a 5 stud conversion aswell to fit my wheels on.

    Anyone else think i'm a bit mad?!

    My mates just give 150 quid for a van thats a 51 plate and had skipped some teeth on timing.

    Bodywork is tidy tho

    Think you should do it.

    Went and looked at a basic one they had in today. Was great on the bodywork, engine was sweet as a nut but the only thing that put me off.............225,000 miles Was on an 03 plate.

    Think i'll hold on until the right one comes along at the right price.

    Been running ideas through my head all day what I would do and what can be used from mine!
