Mobile Workshop - Kit out a van

DIY - The Van: Transit van High roof, medium wheel base. I built racking from Dexion & ply > Also see Tevo >>>> http://www.tevo.eu.com/
I also used mesh racking to display products. And fitted it to the back doors and roof. Great for display at cycle events. I fitted a awning to the side of the van to work from in all weather. I have my tools in the side and I use the back as a show room. I find this is the best all-around working conditions. There is just not enough time, to work in the back of the van. It is not usual to have a fleet of bikes to work on.
