Have at it! ;)

I just picked up another black one to fix up/convert and sell. I've been thinking about doing that same thing on that van. Gives it a very "GTI" look to it.

Ok - first candidate, this long wheel base - rattle-can matte black - 9 seater! For sale here: http://vancouver.craigslist.ca/nvn/cto/5010381551.html

Storage galore. I already envy vans that have a glovebox.


The always popular, ski-pole shifter mod.


Love the tartan headliner. Also -- notice the reversed double-jumpseat?

Another candidate... billed as a Eurovan Limo - it's a pimped out Rialta with mirrored ceilings! How would you like to pull to grad in something like this?





There is so much to discuss here... See it here before it's gone -- 32 pictures! http://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/detail/610196396/overview/

In all seriousness though -- it is very low mileage and reasonably priced Rialta @ 86k miles.

I placed some great vans with custom paint on a pinterest site:

I am partial to the black and white but have been exploring options to add some color (barely, as my color turns out to be a navy blue).  Any thoughts?  See attached images.

Always like that Martini livery van -- I can hardly believe that van is still for sale on the Samba.

FWIW-- I met a couple who had their long nose EV camper painted an awesome Audi metallic bronze/orange. It was amazing up close -- and I should have taken a picture of it.  >:( 

If anybody sees it -- take a picture. Grad students @ Washington State  or Gonzaga-- I believe.

Clearly your computer skills are better than my fast sketching skills ;)

Just something about pen and paper some days :P

 This EVC has a nice decal wrap -- very cool. And I honestly wouldn't mind something like the bumper rub strips/molding as well -- sort of MK3/4 esque.





Van is for sale, too. LINK: http://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/VW-Eurovan-camper-_25885983

BTW -- I am just linking to image address here, so when the ad comes down -- the image goes too. Sorry.

Just found this one -- and I got to say that I normally don't like 2-tone paint schemes on the Eurovan - its always hard to pull off. Then I saw this and I think this is probably the best 2-tone job I've seen. Amazingly good and smart choices all around -- that little pinstripe makes it (IMHO). I wish I had more pictures -- but it looks like the paint line stops at the hatch -- which I find rather interesting (looks good at this angle).

The blacked out grill adds to the appearance, I think.  Is that some kind of spoiler lip on the rear lift gate?
Thanks,

Yes -- the spoilers are available online, its an after market part.

The funny thing is over here (in North America) -- our idea of painting the van is to spay bed liner on it.  ;D
