newbie here for inspiration and help
#1
Hi all iv recently got a 1999 berlingo van in white, I had a land rover discovery v8 which was costing me around 300 a month to run 3 miles to and from work 5 days a week. So the time came and a very hard decision later that I was to sell my pride and joy.
It was on eBay for about two hours before the offers came rolling in, as I have a new baby on the way we had just bought a nice family car for the missus to use so I needed something cheap and cheerful to get me to and from work and also to put the 8 month old boxer in as he seems to find every puddle possible when out, so I agreed on a swap for the berlingo I have sat outside today.
As I have given up a fully prepped off road v8 discovery I feel a bit down in the dumps so iv been looking for inspiration to spruce the berlingo up. I like clean lines and a bit of a fan of the euro look on the vw's any suggestions where I can start?

Look at Muplys white van for starters.
Wheels,Arches and de-badging - great on these - less is more.
You really dont want that "got a halfords gift voucher for xmas" look!

A warm welcome V8 , sorry to hear about your dilemma , its one I currently empathise with :wave:
Anyway , onward and upward eh ?
How far do you want to go ? How about colour coding bumpers ? I'm currently toying with this . Wheels are another big eye catcher though !
Have a look at Eurolee on here :drool:
