Interior of my new van - Ford Transit
« on: A year ago at 05:50 PM »
Hey Guys

I am new on this site - It's really exciting to see your projects and tools.  [thumbs up]
I have a small carpentryfirm in Denmark.
My new van arrived a few months ago and I just got time to prepare it for work.

Welcome to the FOG - excellent van storage layout!

In the pic with your vac - how does that little stop come out so that you can take your vac out?  Does it just lift out or...?

Excellent work very well thought out.

You wanna get a nice VW

That's a great set up, but you need to get those tools out & use them ;D

I would be scared to have all my tools on display like that as some toe rag would probably take the van [mad]

You have done a great job organizing the tools and hardweare in your van.  Thanks for showing (and, thus, inspiring) us.

Hey Guys

Thanks for all the positive feedback. I already feel comfortable on this page.  [blink]

For the unbelievers I can confirm that the vehicle is being used as a tool every day.  [big grin]

The metal pins is only secured in a pair of holes underlying. The weight of the vac holds it in place.

Thanks for all your images.  I am one of many (some here) who are interested specifically in the Ford Transit due to the fact that it will be introduced here late 2013 or early 2014.

Peter
The tools in my truck were talking the other day.  The Dewalts, PC's, Boschs, Makitas were not happy.  They also were in the minority.  Their complaint:  They felt unused and unappreciated since the Festools moved in.  I guess the truth hurts.

It's porn! How could you have too many pictures!?!  [big grin]

Do you have any build pix? I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd like to see start to finish.

I have a festool CS70EB-Set, it can be placed across behind the cab.
I had a DeWalt DW743N fixed in my old truck, but this time I have decided only to bring it occasionally.

Thinking about the Transit Custom? It is in Denmark introduced at the beginning of next year - though not in a size similar to mine!  [mad]

I believe that the Transit Custom in your area is what is called the Transit Connect here.  That model will also become a new model in the Fall of 2013.  The 2014 Transit will look very much like a Sprinter here.

I'm also looking forward to the USA version of the Transit.  Although I'm sure there wont be a Diesel version so its going to have some disappointments from the start.  Sure wish the Hiace was coming to the USA!

Plans are to have a diesel for the Transit here.  Looks like it might be a 5 cylinder 3.7 liter manufactured by Ford in South Africa.
