Wow, its been half a decade if you can believe that  :o I spose ill update those who arnt part of the Bedford Vans Australia Facebook Page.

Way back when i started this post, id engaged with a brand new online Poker company, something which i was then and even now heavily involved with. I proposed to them, a deal where for 5yrs they would own all signage of the vehicle Both inside and out. (back then Car Ads wernt that common, and a VAN like a windowless Bedford? wow). Anyway, they agreed with almost everything, and as per my comments, i got quotes from cheap to top end ($60K + for the Aotoworx showvan (best in Aus it would have been by far..i mean the worx literally, none would have compared..but easy to say, when it didnt happen lol)

Bottom line is, as per the Automotive industry, people just BULLsh-ted their way, and never turned up. I did the course, but it i personaly failed, as i felt conflicted about Mig vs Tig, and since i did a cheap course, i felt un-confident about my skills.

At the end of the day, I do STILL OWN the van, and it resides in my Garage to this day (a decade). I am blessed in that ive not moved, and thus havnt had to face the conflict of removing it. I am cursed in that its cost me some $6K in purchase + Brakes+ Towing+stuff+getting hurt by trusted people (scroll the story).

Im updating this, as Im about to have to purchase a NEW cra, and i dont want too...it will forever feel like a failure if i do. BUT i need reliabilty and my job, so its set in stone.

Im asking, just 1 last time, does someone know a place of credability that would turn an old Van into a new Roadworthy and 5yr lasting vehicle...Nothing flash, but something quality (my $60K quote included 15K paint + 15K interior...+ 15K full metal custom.

anyhow..im down to weeks i spose lol.
