    transit /racevan build MKII

    a while ago I built a MKII Transit van using a nascar doner kit .I now decided to build a different version of the van .I have a transit van kit and a zacspeed mustang kit. the plan is to use most of the transit body and as much of the zacspeed mustang as possible . first thing that was done ,was to cut the complete sides off the mustang body.as luck would have it the wheel base is the same only the body of the mustang is longer. the rear floor plan was shortened 10 mm ,so its the same length as the van .the complete lower half of the transit has been removed.at the moment the sides of the mustang are mocked up on the transit as well as the mustang floor. the van will have a supervan II look about it. here`s how it looks mocked up

    I just don't know where you all get the time to do models, by the time I've finished working on either the house or a car, I get indoors, eat something, do a little bit of internet and it's time for snoozing. It must be an age thing
