My long term friend Alan (also known by a few on here who have met him as Dave) was after his first Van for his business.   After a long and difficult search for the right candidate that fit the budget, this turned up.

2003 2.5 (174bhp) Transporter








Plan:

Turn it into a mobile office for his student lettings business.

Gut it
Cut out panels and replace with Tinted Glass
Insulation everywhere
Board it out (Including Roof)
New padded rubber flooring
Rear seat rails
Fold flat rear bench and seat belts
Colour changing Spot lights in roof
Custom made desk and storage units.
Leisure batteries and charging system
Swivel base captains chair (Driver)
And loads of other undecided shizzle.

He would post this up himself as he has an account but he's just too bloomin lazy!  :grin:

What's the theory behind needing a mobile office?

He's never in his actual office and is always travelling around the city that he rents houses in (very busy).  Manages other peoples properties too.  Often the houses he works on are empty due to renovation so he wants a space he can do the paperwork side, somewhere comfortable with everything he needs in it.  Plus it will be advertising the business on the outside and provide somewhere for discussing contracts with clients/customers whilst on site inside should he wish to.

Sounds a great plan, I've always wanted a mobile office but haven't needed one as yet.

Look forward to some progress  :cool:

Panels cut out for windows.

New OEM Caravelle glass was layered with security film and then dark smoke tinted before fitting which doesn't effect the view that much at all in daylight.  Both O/S panels fitted, N/S sliding door fitted. Rear N/S panel was left in with glass fitted over the top (dummy window) for undisclosed security reasons.



Picture fail, will have more of the windows inside and out soon.
