Lightbulb Resources for modifications - conversions

I just realized I keep ending up back at a few sites/ youtube.com videos etc for great ideas and excellent work being done on vans.

This guy has a Transit so it's really helpful: http://cargovanconversion.com/

then: http://www.backroadsvanner.com/

and the guy that does the Rolling Earth-Ship at youtube has some interesting ways to get things done

Feel free to add your own resources in this thread!
(I've tried hard to use the search engine but many times it doesn't come up even with what I know I posted myself! My apologies for duplicating anywhere!)

It occurred to me a while back that the Sprinter DIY forum (http://sprinter-source.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=3) has been around much longer than the Transit forum and there are many non-vehicle specific things that are covered as thoroughly or more so on that forum as ours, for example Insulation and solar panels etc.
