    That's really looking good. I pulled some panels out to sort through and recover inspired by your posts - you deserve a night or three. Keep up the good work.

    Did a few bits on the van today.
    Fitted the old bed shelf in, looks crap but it'll serve the purpose for a trip away until the new one is built.
    Also fitted the mk3 delay courtesy and map light. Also cut and fitted into the caravelle slider cover the light which also controls the leds Click image for larger version.

    Bit of an update as it appears I've done nothing, but we have been using it more than working on it!!!

    finished the rear bed unit which features barn doors on the back and then a flip top which means we can lift it when we want to read in bed.
    (pics to follow as I cant find them)

    Vent thingy de-mossed and fitted with some stainless filtration mesh from the engineers stores...……..

    Then fitted the swivel seat on the drivers side, need to sort proper sized bolts etc but as a trial fit it went well. Sits a little higher but not entirely weird, will see how we get on with it but think it'll stay...…

    Also fitted some little lights for that romantic feeling, not very intrusive and can hardly see them when they aren't on, they are battery operated and last for ages so a good cheap option.
    They have the hard wire between each so just tucked the wire in behind and left the light buld showing.
    Makes the missus happy, although she is talking about bunting!!!
    Want to keep it looking fairly factory...…..
