Hmm i might leave it hahaha
That rings a bell, think that's what that transit was based on.
Shabby looking self built ones are a massive magnet for PC plod and VOSA
I built one and it could carry nothing....i would not even buy one now...lol
Buy one and remodel it to suit your needs a nice transit smiley with a non turbo will go for miles and miles just fit a good stereo and decent speakers as it won’t be a fast journey
steel bed transits are always about 2.2 ton.
the FWD chassis cabs are the ones to have these days as they are lighter.
id be looking for an ally bed so you can actually put cars on the back. but then most are overweight with just a ford focus on the back.
I'm sure it was 1/3 of wheel base?
is the 60% thing how far you're allowed to have something overhang off the back of the van?
then 1/3 of the van wheel base is the distance the van can stick back past the rear wheels?
Was at a scrap yard in bury last week and seen this i thought i would take a snap for a later date.
Dont know if they have cut the steel themselves or if they bought a kit
It's 60% of wheelbase -
I did a transit once extra long wheel base too. used another chassis.
This chap has just finished building his own...
Few areas on that chassie need looking at 1st
I like the bit where he says,"to get it galv you have to drill a load of holes",no mate,you fell over when they gave you the price to do it
Would be interesting to know if there would be much of a weight saving using Aluminium instead. Obviously it would cost alot more!
quite supprised it came in at 1960kg
Legal carry weight about 1300kg then?
This was posted on a Jag Facebook page,
Somehow I don't think it's legal
Jag number plate doesn't check out either......
Yer i said that as i didnt know the full spec of the vehical
it's a bit off topic... but you can have the vast majority of modern twin wheeler transits uprated to 4.3ton, you just need to add a tachograph and send the paperwork off
seams a bit silly people being fined for being just over 3.5 ton when the vans are good for 4.3 :-o
