My Van Conversion

Stripping The Van Inside

By on 18th June 2016

Before I could start doing any work on the van I needed to completely strip out the back of the van.

My van when i bought it

Removing the ply wood

  •  I started with the wheel arch ply boxes. These are held on by silicone around the edges and two screws on top.
  • The walls had a metal rail in the middle that had to be removed first and then multiple screws in the ply.
  • The ply on the doors were held on by silicone. I just pulled them straight off with my hands.

Removing the double chair

  • Removing the chair was a simple job of just removing 6 bolts holding it down. I sprayed the bolts with WD40 first as they were rusty underneath the van. One bolt did put up a fight and had to be grinded off.

Removing the floor

  • There was loads of screws holding the floor down but only half of them unscrewed, this was because the heads on the screws were ruined. So a hammer and a crowbar worked just fine pulling it up.

 

Stripping the van was a very easy and small job to do but it had filled me with so much excitement now that the van conversion has started.

I have converted a standard Ford Transit van into a campervan to travel and explore the world wherever my heart desires.
