Has it got reversing cameras 🤣

Yes it has cameras and parking sensors but the renault had them as well and I still managed to reverse into a bollard 😂😂😂😂

That looks quite menacing from the front 🙂 

It would be great to see how the build goes.

I will do an up date with pictures if you like

It would be great to see a good install in a big van for someone who has lots of experience. i.e. it's sometimes the little things an experienced person has in their install that makes things better.

Seen as you work in two man teams maybe you should ask your team member to get out and look for you 🤔

Even with a camera you still need to have someone check if reversing into traffic. My camera is pointing downwards at the rear bumper. You can buy two camera setups where one is pointing down and the other out at the back but they don't help with what's coming from the sides and they are crazy expensive.

Even with a camera it not easy to totally see where the side rear corners of the van are so I will be fitting a pair of parking sensors into the rear bumper in the future.

The factory fitted camera I had on my L200 was very good and with the decent sized mirrors I had no issues also the L200 had a very decent sized screen to view when in reverse and could check each mirror and the screen as carefully reversing, it boils down to the driver and we all make mistakes at times.

Today I have cut out the sections for the floor  roller system the old adage of measure twice cut once is one I employed in fact I measured 10 times before drilling cutting , cannot afford to get it wrong  😬😬 I cannot actually fit the rollers yet as the floor is being sprayed with line x on Monday ,then need tk slide the system in and they can then be bolted in .The red tape lines are ware Ime hoping the system will be once bolted in ,
