Discuss away.

Someone buy my bike so I can afford to work on any of my projects lol. 

I'm super stocked with how clean this van is, All the fluids are the right colour and smell. Cruise control and AC MAYTE what else could you want.

I'll give it a tidy up, fit the parts/change all the fluids then take it for compliance. The only thing I have found wrong is the steering wheel flops around a bit, I think the adjuster is loose or a retaining bolt has worked its way out. I'll have a look at that at some point

Later I will make a removable mattress base for it. I've got a big deep cycle battery and a VSR i've had for years so will probably end up chucking them in this. I've also got some lpg stuff I've been hoarding but I'll see how thirsty it is first. Does anyone have and friendly LPG guys who will let me do the work and they check over it/give it a yeah na

Swaps for some certs plus cash my way gee. The plan is to get it legal then enjoy it for a bit then possibly sell it. I really want a apache at some point and I've got too many cars as it is now

The second option for sure, I'd love a apache panel van or fleetside pickup. patina/worn paint with a ls and good suspension under it

This my mates website for future reference http://www.fuelconversions.co.nz/Profile.htm

They do all works servicing and I had a chat when dropping a vehicle off and they quoted a high amount for the c10. From memory it was nearly 5 or 6k with tanks under the bed.

If your putting a bed frame in the back get some heavy duty slides/tracks for it so you can slide it out the back door.

Makes loading stuff easier (when its not being used as a bed)

Bloody good idea. 

My uncle had a BBQ on rollers in his Bedford. That was good to use so I might steal that idea too

If you're building this as a camper van, grab a small tv. 

Over here we have them about 21" or so with built in dvd player etc and have usb port aswell as hdmi. They run off a dc transformer pack. From 240v ac - 12vdc.

Dump the pack in a box and run the tv off the vans 12v system.

Then throw a 1Tb hard drive in there full of movies, tv shows etc and you're set.
