Far too nice to be out on the road Lee ;)

 

 

Kidding of course, it's got to be used! But it does look marvelous, one of my favorite minis actually.

Cheers mate ;-)

I would hate for it not to get used and so plan to use it quite a lot during the warmer months, I also plan on driving it to a few shows this year too ;-)

Kind words Ibby thankyou ;-)

I have tried to keep everything in keeping with the period and so the add ons such as the wheels, tyres and spotlights all tie in lovely, I want to find myself a radio of some sort next that wont look out of place !!

Top class job and the Willow green really is the best colour on vans and the D1s look the business.I like your black wing mirrors,are they NOS or did you purchase they from a supplier,they really suit the van.

I`m not sure what to go for Shifty, I`ll probably just go for a 2 knob jobbie !!

Thanks for that mate ;-)

The wing mirrors I purchased used from off Ebay (Original Van/Pickup ones) but the circular mirrors had seen better days, I struggled to find a pair of new circular mirrors in Black, I could only find them in Chrome so I bought 2 new mirrors in Chrome and sprayed them Black along with the arms again as I wanted to keep them Black and standard looking.
