    Most of you will have read about my recent bad luck with my transit breaking down and then the new van giving me a whole heap more issues. So I thought I would give you an update and show you how I set up the van.

    The oil leaks, appear to have been sorted. It starts, and drives nicely.

    So here is the van, it is 08 plate

    Letter is gold over purple, grey and purple.

    You can just see the white John Guest pipe beneath which is the overflow.

    I used some timber to make a pole rack. Also the triple and some steps live in this rack.

    [​IMG]

    The battery, pump, split relay and the vessels all boxed in. You can see the lift out access lid.

    With the lid removed.

    The vessels slide through the top of the box and into a piece of ply that has DI sized holes cut in it. This secures them very nicely.

    I hope this may be of use to someone setting up a van. It is never an easy job.

    Thanks.

    It's a 400 Litre tank, I rarely use more and if I do I can top up using a customers outside tap if really needed.
