  1. Next...

    Some interior work.
    Here are 10 hessian coffee sacks from eBay.
    Inside at the moment there is a load of drab grey material that doesn't match the bamboo beach hut look. So I'll cover it in coffee sack, some have interesting logos on them. Should look good.

  2. ...also I've found (not that I was looking very hard) the rear seat belt attachment points, so they'll be going in too and we're going to replace rear rock n roll bed foams and have them covered.
  3. She must be a few stone lighter now I've took all this horrible carpet and insulation out.

  4. "Performance modification". I love removing unnecessary crap from my bus. :thumbsup:
  5. Finally got round to putting some hessian on my sliding door card.


    I like it!

  6. I got myself one of these off eBay.
    Have you seen them?
    I've finally got round to making it look like my Bay.

  7. Love that - quite fancy one - who did you get it from?
  8. Nice one, thanks!
  9. A spot of insulating from Monday evening.

    Here are some pics from yesterday's work. I stripped out the old grey stuff, had to remove the bed front to find the speaker were holding it together. Oops.
    And I bit of rot turned up...

    Love the use of hessian sacks. Does your van now have a mild smell of coffee about it? :)
  14. Sadly not.
    They have an interesting yet pleasant smell, but not coffee...
  15. Today I have a coffee sack door on my cupboard.
  16. Had a very productive day today.

    I put some flooring down.

    A read seatbelt got fitted, I didn't photo that I'm sure you can imagine it. I started putting more hessian coffee sacks on the walls with help from the wife.
