LDV Convoy Camper project (NOW WITH FULL MOT)

Post by Brainsparks30 on Fri Jul 27, 2018 12:36 am

Sadly this project camper has been postponed indefinitely and needs be passed on. Its still quite viable to finish as a conversion, or use as a van with windows, now is a sound box to work with.

Started out as school minibus, seats are all removed and ply floor fitted, little bit at the rear needs laying.
Original drivers seat is currently installed, I have the brackets for front passenger seat.
Added extra front door seals to reduce wind noise (cost £50).
Replaced steering arm rod ends.
There in an unfinished rock and roll bed I had made up custom from another ebayer, cost over £200.

If anything showed signs of rust, it got fixed.
There is NO rot now.
Ideally the box cavities still need Dinitrol to preserve.
The floor is welded and painted inside with Rustolem.
The inner and outer sills are welded and solid.
Sound deadening has been removed for access, the plastic trim is stowed inside.
Front and rear arches welded and sound, painted and undersealed.
Cross member behind front bumper welded and wax oiled.
Good battery.
Peugeot EN55 engine has done low miles, not the most powerful but has timing chain rather than belt.
Oil and filters are changed.
Axillary drive belts replaced.
Kingpins replaced.
New front calipers, brake fluid, pads, disks, copper lines and flexi hoses.
New front wheel bearings fitted, will need adjusting when bedded in, some 200 or so miles.
New windscreen fitted and sealed with marine sealant, (no leaks now)
Carpet dumped as soaked when purchased.
Differential oil seal replaced.
'Lead' flashing tape around roof seal, just to be sure.
Fuel gauge has stopped working, new sender in included in sale.
Has 20L DERV in tank so you wont get stranded.

Side windows sometimes leak, just as they did when it left the factory. Marine sealant should cure. My attempt with Sikaflex Clone failed.
It was discovered that the seam sealer had failed between the body panels, so this was rectified and over painted with more Rustoleum.

Three spares wheels, but rubber is perished.
Plenty of tread left on fitted tyres.
Roof is still grubby, will wash (if you can reach) of easily.
Standard of work done is way above mot requirements and done to last.

Full MOT, work bills and old mot certs present

Give me the asking price and I will throw in the workshop manuals that were far from cheap, and the tow bar and steps I have not yet fitted.
Viewing in Brandon, Suffolk. Call 07825 566086
Cash on collection please!
