Companion photograph to this one: [link]

This is actually a fair bit older than the above link though, realised today that I don't actually *have* any photos of the van from the back after it had the "stage 2" clean and polish. Still a lot of big rusty marks and such about...which have since been replaced with mismatched paint...

While it actually looks worse now, it is progress in the right direction.

Just a different angle for those who've never had a proper look at a T25 before, especially given that they're not exactly a common sight on the roads any more.

In the 80s, the T25 was a popular van for converting into campers, just as the T2 had been before it. There were professional conversions sold as new, and quite a few like this which started their lives as panel vans before being bought second hand and converted. While some aspects of this one are somewhat "home brew" for want of a better term, it seems to have been reasonably well done, and everything works as intended.

Don't think there are any current vans out there with this rear engined layout though, which is understandable to be honest, as it does make for a less than helpfully shaped load bay! Not so bad for a camper though as you just put a seat or a bed on the higher bit.

If anyone's interested, I'll throw up a couple of photos of the inside, if not though I'll probably leave this one as it stands for now.

Thanks. I suspect I'm going to have somewhat of a love-hate relationship with this van depending on what mood it's in at any given time!

Lot of work to be done yet, but I am really looking forward to driving it and camping in it.

You asked nicely, so I'll put another couple of photos up over the next few days!
