Just caught up with this thread. Looks really good. Well done.


Mind you, and I feel a bit rude mentioning it, you've got a bloody big rat wandering about above your seat! Ha!

Very good... You definitely do have skills and some tools, cos that interior wasn't cut out with a knife and fork!

Its not too bad to be honest, I did the seats higher this time so that the bed runs level with the shelf above the engine it gives me loads more in the length, I just remove the backrest from the seat( see pics)



firstly drop the table between the two seats

Image

then add an extra piece of timber thats kept in the back

Image

lay out the cushions and take the backrest off for more headroom, job done

Image

Image


so to go from this

Image

to this

Image

takes roughly 5 minutes :)
