How Heavy Am I?

Hello! I am a brand new member to CFUK and owning a CF so know absolutly nothing about .... well, most things. In a fit of stupidity(?) I have just purchased a CF Ambulance/Minibus beast. Now, my first question is, what exactly is it? I understand she had 8 passenger seats in (all long gone), with front sliding doors and a double rear door. She also has a double rear axle and 2.3 petrol engine on a 3 speed autobox and is 17'9ish long. Does that make her a 350L? Now, here is the more important bit. She is registered as a disabled passenger vehicle with gross weight of 4574kg and i am wanting to change her to a PLG and down-plate her, preferably to 3000kg, certainly to 3500kg. Does anyone know what the unlaiden weight would be and has anyone done anything like this before who can advise me how?

Hi Ian & welcome to the club.First off,there's nothing stupid about buying a cf.Unless we're all stupid.....Ah,actually you might have a point there!
There should be a plate somewhere on the van,usually on the passenger door pillar that would give you the details.Failing that a trip to your nearest weighbridge sounds in order.As for down-plating,sorry mate I ain't got a clue.
Gethin will probably pop in later this morning,he'll know more about that.
Got any pics?
