… was the panel van and the panel van is now mine and the panel van is ready to convert. Welcome to my Self Build Campervan blog. I would like to introduce Vinny, he’s my van. I didn’t name him, he was named by the previous owner and his wife who had planned to convert him to a campervan themselves but in the end he wound up with me. His full name is Vinny VanDiesel hence the name of the blog. I am going to stop referring to the van as him now. I shall be adding pictures and updates when I get a chance.
