    Hi there.... New here!


    Recently took a gamble on a bargain Iveco daily for the upcoming conversion project. Turns out not to be so much of a bargain after all ha ha but will still work out cheap after all expenses are paid.

    Will be doing the conversion to get our family out and about all year and France / Spain / Portugal in the summer holidays when the holiday companies turn the financial thumbscrews on us stressed parents and inflate the prices.

    Remanufactured engine going in our van this week.. Looking forward to getting her picked up and get the conversion going over the winter months.


    Maybe see some of you around... Here is some pics of our shiny new engine.

    Thanks for the welcome

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Seems to be a nice forum to spend time on... Useful too!

    Gordon, hopefully we can follow some of your own footsteps and create some great memories for us and the kids. Ill try and update on here as our journey progresses.

    Steve / Chubby, Yep, i must admit, I do find a clean engine bay more pleasing than I probably should

    Silver Sprinter, Thanks.

    Phillybarbour, Well spotted, it was indeed a "typo". Corrected it now... She is called Lisa and I have passed on your welcome to her.

    Robmac & Trevskoda, I will head over to the sister site... Do we have access to motorhome builder with our full membership of wild camping?


    Pick up the van from the garage in Essex on Monday morning. Fingers crossed that this will complete the first stage of the saga. Let the fun of the build begin!


    Cheers

    Chris & Lisa
