Please read the disclaimer, this site is a documentation of my conversion of my own van,
Welcome to this documentation of my LDV Maxus conversion. I hope you will find it interesting and useful to you if you are planning or doing one yourself.
From this above to this below
You might say I was lucky in the fact that I already had a van to convert, having worked as a parcel courier, so I didn't have to make a choice of vehicle.
I have a 2005 LDV Maxus which had at the point of conversion done 68,000 miles, so only just run in.
I see by the forums on the web that not very many people like the Maxus, Well I do, I find it a nice van to drive quite economical for its size returning 28- 35 mpg and a reasonable amount of power at 95psi although if I had the chance I would have bought the 120psi.
The following pages follow my process of the build, unfortunately I lost a lot of pictures last year when my computer crashed, but I hope the ones I have salvaged will be able to show quite well the process.
I decided that I wanted a vehicle that looked like it was a factory conversion and I think that I have achieved that.
FORWARD TO PLANNING
