Post Wed, the first pic is of this van in it's prime, a few years later in pic 2 and the last pic was recorded 2 years later again, so must be the result of a rebuild, but not sure.............

Yes George, I have received the same information from a friend in the UK, but can't confirm this for sure, but the process would work for sure, might try it on the Black Beddie. ;) I have always liked the flow of this van, even the cab side windows are curved and not straight like most.

There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"

Amazing, the mighty beddy even looks good as a trailer. Just imagine what you could do inside one of them as a trailer.

As for the van with the cast on the back, if you did it Bas, you could do a big KIWI bird, or do the big bedford logo, now that would look good .

Just a recap for George today, this van was rebuilt in 1990 to 1993, the back was done in full fibreglass, back to Bedford vans tomorrow........ ;) For those that want the full size photo for closer inspection, I will put them in my Gallery tonight............
