Jobs Done Over The Winter So Far..

6 posts in this topic

ok so iv had a bit of time off over the winter and decided to do a few things to the van the wife says iv spent more time with me van then thinking of her xmas present lol ..

so far iv wired a split charge relay to a 2nd leisure battery in the back to run work lights and 240 inverter and a couple of amps . two sub boxes are made and roughly painted . the 2 6x9s are in above my head in a ported box /panel above the compartment bulkhead every panel in the back has been treated to a bead of silicone wher it meets the framing to help stop nasty panel vibration with the bass.. will upload sum photos and vids tomorrow

thing iv noticed with the difference between a mk6 55d and a mk5 van is build quality .. this one has no nose matting any where where as the mk5 i had had it on the inside of the front compartment and up to the line above the wheel arches in the back which made a hell of a difference in road noise and panel vibration

next thing is to replace the diesel tank as the dam thing split round the center seem and im losing diesel .

and replace the disks drums and pads as there all pritty worn..for the mot next month..
