converting a van to a pickup.

Postby mk1joe » Wed Dec 07, 2016 6:27 pm

Hello,
Ive got a van body for my morris but really I want a pickup. so can anybody give me any advice on how to cut it down and make it fit. I know the van body bolts to the ring of bolts around the cab but I don't know how a pickup bed attaches at the front. also im on the look out for a fibreglass cab back, cheap and second hand preferably, any leads would be great.
Thanks for all the help guys.

pickup bed attaches like the van back, then the cab back is fitted

Thank you very much! Step by step instructions with pictures, I couldn't ask for anything better. I did have a look for threads such as this before posting the question but I couldn't find any.

Now just need a cab back.

Thanks again!

Thanks, I might be interested but I have a lead on a cheaper one in poor condition that would probably suit better. If I have no luck I will get back to you.
