  1. Hello Ryan and Mel,

    Loving your work. I am actively looking to buy and convert a Nissan NV200.
    I am inclined to buy the NV200 car version, 7 seats, as I need a back a seat for my daughter.
    It’s also less van looking for the everyday use.
    What are your thoughts? Would the conversion work on the van based car?
    Thanks a million

    1. Look on Facebook for NV200 group – many people have used the combi (car) version. Be aware there is more glass, more airbags and different dash options. Also its different tax class. Van is simpler. If you need crash approved seat – only option is the OEM seats left in situ. However you can get belted seats in the rear, like us, but they are not approved (regardless of what you hear) – but they don’t’ need to be. Just be confident in how they are made/fitted. Tough call for kids… (ours vvv seldom used)

  2. Hi Ryan and Mel,

    Hoping you can help! I also have a Nissan NV200 but the combi version which my very clever partner (who is an electrician) is planning on connecting a leisure battery up for me but we cannot find any literature on which wire to connect to from the alternator? The split charger relay we have says to connect to either D or F wire, he’s torn between a blue and a green wire, do you happen to remember which one?!

    Thanks in advance!
