Hi guys,
just finished off my LWB T4 with a camping/surfing interior but I'm not happy with the way I have fixed the seat panels to the base of the r/r bed. They are bolted on and then I screwed the foam base (already glued to hardboard) onto the plywood bases. The problem is, there is plywood on show and I want to make sure this is hidden; anybody got any brilliant ideas out there?

not good with the picture thingy, camera and IT knowledge is rubbish.

my r&r has a pelmet covering ugly bits, just like a curtain pelmet covering a curtain pole.

the pelemt a piece of ply 1cm thick est, covered with matching lining carpet and screwed to wood of the r&r bed, looks effective and does not stop the bed from working:ILU:

I placed the foam on the ply bases with the covering fabric over the lot and then a 1" overlap of the fabric stapled to the underside of the ply. The ply is then fixed to the R&R frame with bolts into 'T' nuts pre-inserted in the ply bases. This way there is no ply on show (Ply from Wickes - 'T' nuts and bolts from B&Q....).

went down the road of removing the bases and securing T bolts to the topside of them and then screwing the bolts in from the underside which has done the job-no more ply!!!Thanks for the suggestion.
