I think this is the right place. Ok, not a build thread as such, just a place to keep all my changes and personal touches in one place. Hope people like what I do....if not, tough 😂

This is it as it is now.....

I`ve ordered a few gloss black bits so far. First bit to arrive was the rear bumper protector. It`s classed as gloss black but....it`s more like....black chrome??? Anyway, not 100% happy but it`s on now. This was from just kampers.

Before and after...

This is a little tip I picked up on youtube. To stop the pop top canvas pushing out when its closed...tie a length of bungee cord around it. When it closes the cord should pull the canvas in. Wasn`t sure how tight to pull it so not sure if it`s right!

Adding a touch of colour here and there lifts the look mahooosively.

Nice! I've always said the little mods are equally as important as the bigger ones, they all help make the camper more comfy and homely 🤙

😂 it won't just be him, nice one about the lights mate
😂 😂 Yeah....I went for the ones like yours. I liked those the first time I saw them on youtube vids. I`d like some H1 led bulbs too but need to find the ones which fit in the back of the headlights.

I could be wrong but I don't think the LED headlight bulbs give any better light.
I think the lights come with upgraded bulbs from memory. They are the ones `I have in mine.
