Project bongo

Post by Liam1234 » Sun Apr 07, 2019 1:45 pm

Hi all I'm new to the fourm and new to owning a bongo.
Been looking for a while to buy one and have finally got one.
Things Iv done so far
Timeing belt and water pump oil and filter change and coolant change
Things to do
Sort wheel arches out as some one has replaced them but thay haven't done a very good job.then paint the full van blue and paint the aft black along with the mirrors.
Then once that is done I can fit the lesure battery with my home made battery tray and my solar pannel and controller .all this should be done by the end of next week I will post pics as I'm going
