  5. It's been a couple of months so I should really post a pic just to prove I am still working on the old girl :)

    It's all taking shape now, the seats are pretty much finished just finishing them off with laminated tops and Devon trim which is fun!
    All my cushions are finished along with matching curtains!!
    Hoping to have ago at making a headliner and over head locker this weekend....supposed to be done by volksworld so I'm cutting it pretty fine.

    Struggling to find photos as my photo bucket account is playing up but here's a couple of randoms

    Back rest that doubles as a usable surface and storage. Laminated with black Formica.

    Iv made 2 tables that together drop between the seats to create a bed , they are both laminated in Formica and will have the Devon trim.

    And here's a couple of cushions!

  9. Good work! I really like it.
    Was it difficult getting the profile of the bulkhead on the rear of the seat?

  10. Cool cheers Zedders, that's exactly what I was going for :)
     
  11. Cheers dude!! Not to bad, used a compas to scribe the shape and then cut with a jigsaw. It's being covered tho as there's going to be a small panel between the seat and b pillar which will also be cut to profile.
     
  12. Looking awesome dude

  13. Managed to spend the whole weekend on the bus trying to get the interior finished in time for volksworld.
    I recently scored myself a new job as a joinery apprentice which I started 4 weeks ago...luckily my new boss is really trusting and gave me a key to the workshop this week so I could I use the place this weekend!!
    so me and my mate Jon took full advantage :lol:

    We ticked a few small jobs off the list but the main thing was to make and fit a rear over head locker.
    I forgot to get a photo of it finished but here's a couple of process pics.

    I machined up some lengths of hard wood that are now fixed to the underside so the table will hang underneath.
    [​IMG]

    We also made infil panels for either side of the front bench but they still need varnishing before they can be fitted.

    That's it for now..... Headlining is next on the list.

  16. Another update and so soon since the last......
    finally fitted all the cushions week before last in preparation for volksworld along with my curtains which I forgot to take a photo of.
    The interior is a step closer but still not finished.
    We had a "crack" at the headlining using 3.6mm ply and it cracked :lol:
    So I've now got 3 sheets of flexi ply at the workshop waiting for the next headlining attempt.

    Unfortunately a few days before volksworld I started having running issues which we thought we had solved by re setting the valves as they were quite far out but on the way home it started playing up again and I started loosing power on the motorway. Luckily it didn't completely cut out and spung back to life pretty quickly so I drove home slowly trying not to demand to much power. Not sure what the problem is at the moment so planning to work through everything changing leads etc. Probably doesn't help being on a 009 which I may change and I'm debating changing the single 30/31 pict for twin Webber 34ict's but I'm still undecided.
    So yeah.....finishing the interior is kind of on hold now until the running issue is sorted.
    Apart from that, Volksworld was awesome and it was my first time sleeping in the bus. Defeinatly beats a tent :thumbsup:

    Here'sa few random pics.
