Never liked the wood dash, bit old fashioned, had resigned to changing the whole dash

So a thought a might as well have a bash at getting it off

Crossed my fingers and off I went



Started gently heating the fake wood and slowly peeling it off



Success !!! Started on the rest



4 hours later



Well chuffed few marks here and there but a think it looks so much better




Still Needing a new glove box lid tho , someone decided to screw a remote control to it

Gives you chance to see the solar panel as well

I like this, i haven't seen one of these before, I don't normally like high top vans, but this looks cool.

theres a few options for bed

It came with extra cushions for two singles or one massive bed or the traditional king size think we will stick with the traditional king size so we donít need to carry the extra cushions

The door handle was cracked and worn, Autosleeper parts department came up trumps with a replacement, nice easy fit



New one is much better quality with metal reinforcement and parts
