The van presented on this page is a Ford Custom that Syncro System has fitted out for a door and window installer. The customer chose to install racking on both sides of the van, leaving the bulkhead free apart from a cargo retaining system. The van also features some indispensable accessories. This L2 Custom has been transformed into a compact but effective mobile workshop. Let’s take a closer look.
Before thinking about the racking as such, it is essential to protect at least the most exposed surfaces of the bodywork. This particular Ford Custom is fitted with a floor liner made from marble-look plywood panels. The panels on the bulkhead are made from the same material and shaped to match the contours of the van. Custom liner panels are also fitted to the bottom sections of the doors. The original Ford panels have been left in place on the walls and at the top of the doors.
Racking covers the entire left side of this Ford Custom belonging to a door and window installer:
The Syncro System full-length tray, a popular choice for the top of racking systems, is installed in a slightly unusual way in this Ford Custom. Because the van’s walls slop inwards at the top, the tray has been offset towards the centre of the cargo compartment, meaning that it rests on the racking beneath only for part of its depth. Syncro’s extendable top tray is ideal for carrying long objects. Its fold-down access door with locking bar is always installed facing the rear of the van. Objects carried in the tray can therefore be removed over the top from inside the van, or through the fold-down door from outside the vehicle.
The right side of the van is fitted with a single column of racking consisting of a floor-level compartment with a top-pivot door, an open shelf with adapters for two Euronorm containers, then, higher up, two metal drawers, an enclosed shelf and an open top shelf.
Accessories make this door and window installer’s Custom even more functional and make it easier to keep things tidy too:
