      As the van is in the shop and I can't do much at the mo I've turned my attention to the roof lining. I was going to go for a grey alcatara look but the missus persuaded me to think a bit outside the box and try this..... Not entirely sure but we'll see how it looks! ��Click image for larger version

        So the idea is to have the cow print at the front and the tan alcantara (read faux suede!) Behind the cab.

          Different but could look cool.

              Popped out to the workshop today, all the glass was taken out on Thursday last week, screen surround isn't as bad as previously thought (although like a plum I forgot to photo this area!)
              Bit lax at the moment with pics and progress but hopefully fella me lad will get a wriggle on now the glass is out.

                As i can't do much else on the van until body fella finishes i spent today completing the roof lining. Still not entirely convinced but we'll see when it's in place! Click image for larger version

                  Just been to see the van, having to replace scuttle panel. Matey has been too busy to do anything for 2 weeks, feeling a little miffed but hopefully will be worth it.

                        Thanks bud, although I'm struggling at the mo with everyone talking about planning their trips away and I haven't even got an interior, let alone the van!

                                Cheers bud.
                                Thinking of booking a night away in a hotel in cornwall next week, have the week off, cant do anything to the van.
                                This'll be the 1st easter since I cant remember when that I wont be away in it (or previous vans!)
