    Makeover time, bored of the old interior, my needs have changed somewhat so I've started to rip it all out.

    The problem with building the van furniture in situ is that most of the screws that fix the first battens in place that everything build onto are often obscured by later additions or designed to be hidden or just buried under the final trim.

    Final got the cupboard out, it wasn't giving up without a fight though, chunks of the floor came up with it

    Not sure how I'm going to lighten the interior, previously it was a bit dark, a sea of dark grey veltrim four way stretch carpet

    might bring some more wood in the design, ideally the roof lining needs to go, I'd love something like sausage has for his roof - he owes me a few hours....

    It's not started well though, the plan to lighten it, what am I replacing the black leather upholstered rock and roll with? Yep even larger black leather seats,

    A bit like these

    wish I'd hunted down some cream versions or maybe some two tone ones, they were an impulse buy, cheap and fairly local.

    mmmmm maybe not, they look a little too DFS for me. two tone might work

    ne'er mind, I've got what I've got now - and they've got some neat folding tricks that will work well for an occasional camper van.

    Nothing radical I guess, the base hinges forward and the back folds down horizontal, potentially forming a section of bed and a headboard.

    Just nicely designed and very neat.

    Also the bases lift, so when I fit a base to lift them up it'll make a hidden storage area with the seat being the lid.

    Plan is to put everything on rails, the seats will go in with a low height, removable storage box behind.

    When I go camping, the seats and the storage box will come forward giving enough room for a separate camping pod to slot in by the back door. The camping pod should have a two ring cooker with grill, the gas bottle and maybe a couple of drawers with kitchen/camping tat in them.

    At least that's the plan..... for now the van is empty

    very noticeably lighter, the rear end has popped up about 20mm and I have some rake going on.


    That's my new car in the background - a 3 cylinder corsa given to me by the neighbours, not sure what to do with that yet, but my boy is 16 soon and driving lessons wont be far away. He has absolutely no interest in cars so a corsa should suit him.

    My youngest Josh (who a few met at Action) loves cars and seems to think he'll have a R32 skyline as his first car, he'll be decimated when he realises insurance will limit him to a very similar box of misery like his elder brother endured.

    There may be two chassis but you need to divide by two to get one working car.
