My Working Van
« on: February 13, 2014, 06:13 AM »
Hello everyone,  ;)
This is my everyday working van.
It is a Renault trafic dci 115 extended with gallery roof.

Simple but very effective, I hope you enjoy !

Come from France, sorry for my English...

Also, I think that Renault looks really nice!  What year is that?

I like the look of the Renault van, and also the VW that Woodguy has ( I don't know if there are different models of the VW vans).

Nice setup and a great looking van. The Renault Trafic and Opel Vivaro vans are identical in design and I think they are the best looking vans that have been manufactured in years.

Is that an alarm on the sliding door?

My current job for exemple, cutting preparation before final installation and gluing.

Made with the Protool 125 agp (Festool DSG-AG 125 now...) and a hilti cordless grinder.

Really nice racking.  Steering wheel & sliding door is on the wrong side though  [blink]

Rob, my van is the Renault Traffic also but the sport model.

A friend of mine just got a new Vauxhall (Opal) Vivaro & it is identical but mine has the built in Sat Nav where the Vauxhalls don't.  I believe the Nissan Primastar is the same van also.

If its made of wood, i can make it smaller.

Beware with those vans guys. There was some sort of fault that the van could easily be broken into and the alarm would even switch off. My friend had his electrical testing gear stolen from his one and they even locked it back up after.

Not sure if they've sorted the fault yet or not.

I think his was an 07 Nissan not sure if they've fixed it by now. The police told him about it but obviously wouldn't show him how they get in.

Sprinters can be opened by breaking the handle off and operating the door locks through the resulting hole. The panel vans from fiat and Renault and all the other rebadged versions can be opened wet ha long handled screwdriver driven through the door lock. My fiat ducato has been broken into twice  [censored] [censored] [censored]. My new relay is being fitted with deadlocks and lock shields and with a steel bulkhead I am hoping it should be secure. Best part of a £1000 to do but that does not buy many festools. In both my breakins they got nothing as tools removed at night but they make a mess of your doors!
It started with one little sander
