Interesting to know what market this was built for with the air intakes? behind the cab..Built in Germany RHD. Flat bed.. is that wood or steel? Has the original bed been covered with board?
The M-plate details would clarify, but my money would be on it being a SA export model.

Re: interior light switch

If you're looking to power something with a higher load then the original 10w I would use the switch to control a fused relay.

Did the "sound damping compound" go on like stone chip that you then paint over?
The sound damping compound I did spray at the paint of the bus and I kept it that way.
Sorry, not following you there?

I like the idea of the material in the engine bay. Absorb the noise at source and prevent it travelling into the bus. Similar to Bays.
