Any ideas what this is for?
Well done for winning the interior.
Looks like you are doing exactly what I'm doing - adapting the rhd interior for a lhd van. The trick is to arrange the interior so you can make up the bed
You can have the cooker on either side of the van - I'm possibly going to have mine on the door side and adapt the hinge plate and rollers so it still swings out. That means I'll be making a mirror image buddy seat. Alternatively the cooker could go on the other side which means you would have the buddy seat on the door side - that would mean you would have to make a third side for the seat, but it would also mean that all cooking would be inside the van.
The catch is for holding the drop-down flap between the seats in the upright position. Do you have the flap? If you go for a full width R & R bed you won't need it so you could sell the catch to me as I don't have one
Nice pics BTW. That cooker unit on the right should have a Virr Varr top that lifts off - not hinged. AKAIK all spaceways were fitted with Argyll cookers with no legs - the cooker fits on two alloy rails riveted to the inside of the unit. So yours is interesting because it has legs. The rear clips for the warming rack are also unusual. The hinges on the large door are in fact the rare and desirable hinges for the rhs rear crockery cupboard - I have some NOS correct hinges for the cooker doors if you need any. I'll take some pics of the units I have.
In fact we need to make this THE Spaceway thread so thanks for starting it.
Off for a day on the ocean now - wind and rain increasing nicely and I need to service the engine
