A change of van for the good

1st August 2015 - 0 Comments

I used to have a vito and we were glad to get rid of it. We replaced it with a Proace and when I did I decided to kit it out properly. I looked into the van racking out there and the prices were well out there so I decided to do it myself and I think I did a pretty good job.

This was done about 1 year 6 months ago and it has lasted the usual tradesman battering you'd expect it to get and its still in one piece instead of pieces.

A chop saw in the back on extending hinges. Also a grinder, drill press and sharpener mounted on 2 extending metal drawers. The shelving was made from OSB board and cable trays.
