Well, the carpet didn't go on as well as expected. The carpet I'm using is slightly thicker than Megavanmats, so when it was adhered to the outside, it wanted to return to it's original position, so take two involved much more stretching of the carpet, almost to breaking point
First newly trimmed panel fitted, going to get some darker screws to disguise them. Power tails are for light switches. Tailgate (and sliding door) away for paint as the guy who had it before me must have had stuff rolling round in the back as they were dinted and scraped. As they are not going to be carpeted, I wanted them to look tip top. First quote £1000 , second quote a much more respectable £250 (which also includes the mirror caps that look like they'd be done with a rattle can!
Headlining carpetted and all back in. Not sure if I like it, may change it for something a bit funkier further down the line
Ply lining also down ready for the flooring to be put down. Got them to put some Pioneer speakers in the roof at the same time to save me a job!
They managed to get the floor down yesterday and start the wiring up process. So now it's time to get the furniture made up, hence the samples in the foreground! First things first though, the windows should be going in today, and the slider and tailgate should be coming back from the paintshop. May get the van back at the weekend dependent on the lead time for them to get the boards in.
yep you have to make sure also your not over loaded..
When i go kite surfing or just take every thing I make sure I am not going to be over loaded.. by the time a top box goes on and all the other stuff it's supprising how quick it all mounts up and then my fat in the drivers seat it soon goes down I:
looking good I have been meaning to post up how I did mine I will try in the next few weeks for others to see I used Ikea units in the end as I had 3 days to do the whole van but ened up taking 6-7 over two shift patterns at the time.. next one will be made from scratch, units area great I have to say. But I have the skills to make them so I might as well do that..
That looks like a nice job there, keep up the good work. With the lining i recommend hi-flex as its very easy to manipulate, and would have gone round the window edges easy. Out of interest what cutting tool did you use for the windows? It seemed to make a nice cut...
Well, it's been a long time coming, but the convertors have the van again, and are cracking along nicely
Shows the gas locker alu lining
The seats are away with Chris at Trimming Tonic, and should be done in two weeks, the interior should be ready for next Friday, so finally... it's all coming together. Off early July for a week, so need to decide on the maiden voyage!
