    Haven't posted in a little bit so a couple for more updates for you guys

    I was tired of looking at the state of the step where the bulk head used to be:

    So I wire wheeled it again for good measure, primed it, and gave it a coat of paint:

    (Sorry for the picture quality, most of what I do is afterwork when it's dark)

    I then carpeted it up and it looks a lot nicer now.

    After waiting and waiting for a good size offcut of the vinyl i wanted to come into my local carpet shop, I finally had something:

    Once I got it in the van I spent a couple hours cutting and shaping it into every corner and across every curve until this:

    Unfortunately, on the very last cut, I rushed it and absolutely ruined it..

    So disappointed in myself, so been racking my brain trying to figure out how to hide/fix.

    The options I've come up with are:

    1) As it's a wooden slat design, cut a spare piece, shape it, cut the ruined piece off and drop the new on top with a tiny bit of sealent
    2) By some laminate floor trim from B and Q or something and run that round the edge
    3) Cover it with some carpet we were going to buy anyway

    Honestly kicking myself. Any other suggestions would be very apprecaited

    Here's a couple shots of the vinyl laid down though:

    We’ve all done it, or something like it. The vinyl looks a bit like a colour called black ash. What you could do is get a small bit of an off cut, trim it to shape (it may pay to cut a section out of the actual floor covering to get a good cut, get small tin of black ash wood stain, peel back the vinyl, stain that bit of wood, and fit the new bit. Then have a few beers and forget all about it

    Multivan2's have a 2 piece triangular shaped plastic vent that "hides" the step fitted to vans with the second heat exchanger.
    Tidies the edging up nicely but not a cheap option by any means.

    7D0 819 112C or C U71 to denote colou
