One of our biggest wants for our conversion project was for all the components to be cut using our CNC machine. The benefits once we had plotted all the shapes are huge however plotting the original shapes isn't a piece of cake. We have decided to use the Volkswagen T5 + 6 platform for the conversion but there are a fair few different variants of the T5 chassis, Our black van covered the Short Wheel Base, Barn door Model variety but we needed to get the required shapes for all Long Wheel base vans and also plot a Tailgate version.
We were given the heads up about the Irish electricity board using LWB tailgate T5s, not only were they panel vans but also 4 motion! The hunt was on.
We finally found and imported this monster that's affectionately been know as "the wasp" since the day it arrived.
The wasp has done its job in providing us with the panel layouts we need so its about to enter phase two of its life with which we're rather excited about.
It's the last day in its current guise which is a little sad as we've slightly fallen for the empty, tatty wasp. Plus is goes like hell.
