In the mean time, some pics of the curtains when I had them fitted. Sorry for quality of shots, it's an iPad shot of a photo!

Remember opinions on the seat cushion would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Are both ends of the 'stay' the same? And where do you store/stash it? I have never seen one in the flesh before, something that would easily get lost.

The close-ups of the flush mount bracket and 'stay' bracket on cargo door are excellent in your previous post, if possible could you post a photo of the little bracket just below the cargo door latch and the 'stay' bracket on the table/shelf. I would appreciate a photo of the bottom of table/shelf where it attaches to cargo door, just looking to confirm I have the correct piece?

Cheers

Well I have actually seen and touched Spanker's in the flesh. ..oooeeerrr.. Friend of mine Mark Buckingham has a Velvet Green kombi based Torvette Spaceway.
He donated the bed making tutorial photographs.
I will go and see or email and ask him for pictures and dimensions. ...for comparison. ..
When I return from the tour..

The strut pictured came with the van but I am 100% sure it is not correct as it is too long and looks nothing like the versions I have seen on other Spaceways, so discount that piece. When I get round to it, I will probably make a correct replacement from the correct gauge steel rod.
I will get a close up of the bracket on the underside of the table top as soon as I am able.

Well it is orange. ..odd material and nothing I have ever seen..
Mine came with a pair of tights stuffed in a nook and cranny.. a bar mat from Spain and a plaque from a Scottish VW Festival and five odd old pennies. ..
None waz OG Devon equipment. .
Oh and an odd bent section of aluminium tube. ..which even I cannot fathom a use for..
So nice but I think not Devon...

Thats a shame as I was happy to swap it for an NOS Devon cutlery roll. I will have to keep enjoying its 70s orangey hue for now then!
