    Gardening Van (Bedford)

    Got a Bedford as my new project work vehicle because tax reasons.
    Wanting to go fg Barra turbo (oem With boost and tune).
    Probably get that bald Subaru lover to do it but he's trying to talk me into a 1j.
    Has 202 and traumatic currently. Hoping some off the shelf Barra into hq etc mounts may work.

    The Pedford (will qld tpt let me have those plates) won't be an a team rep. Wrong car to start with.
    Paint is likely to be old school white or beige

    A Bedford makes a pretty close replica though:

    They are 7/8 scale GM G van after all.

    Love it. I have a strange fondness for vans and I can't stop fantasising about the Renault Espace van that has the widebody, F1 motor and driveline in it and wanting to do something similar but with something decent like a Honda Odyssey.

    Paint it flat black and write 'Free Candy' on the side in spray paint.

    Excellent! I love vans, don't even need to paint it black, just need to paint "Free WiFi" on it, nobody wants Candy anymore...

    The best thing about the Transit above is that it was an ex Australian Post one, so they drove most of the way with the sliding doors open for ventilation.

    I always wanted a Bedford van. I think they are awesome.
    How heavy are the things? Surely the extra torque of a bigger size engine would betterer?
