i could make the engine cover another 10 or 20mm wider if you wanted to cut more of the floor out to be able to take rocker covers off and what so ever.

One of the things I have learnt the hard way is don't start cutting, fitting or welding anything till you have all the bits you need in place. There's nothing worse than cutting a hole and finding you have taken too much out. It is a real pain in the arse welding bits back in to resize it. It never looks the same again.

If you're not sure whether the engine cover will fit and don't want to shell out the cash before you're sure measure out the hole you think you will need and mark it out on the floor of the van. Then ask Ben really nicely if he will cut out a cardboard template of the foot print of the engine cover and put that in the post. You can then line that up with your measurements on the floor of the van to give you a better idea of whether it is all going to work before you shell out the dollars or start cutting.
