This is very nice. 8) I like the little details like the aluminium strips on top of the rear drawers. Hope to see it in the flesh one day. :D

Totally agree with all Will.... Amazing work and certain things just finish it off and make it look that extra bit special!

Very impressed and combined with the bus, puts your lovely previous ride into the photo album.... Bettered, but not forgotten.

Nice one.

I'll post some when I have the van back next week. It's gone for a bit of a tune-up :wink:

The stop lamp looks like this one:

It is mounted on the overhead locker to create a 3rd brake light. My wife drove behind me today and said it looks great :D

The one in the photo will be for sale soon :lol:

Cheers, Will

Had the van out yesterday and I remembered that I never posted photos of my 1930s American truck stop light. These were taken on my phone. It works really well and gives me a bit more confidence that other drivers will notice I'm braking. With 4 servoed discs I can stop sharpish :wink:

Will, the door in the side of your seat is a top idea! Like it loads.

Do you remember what size foam you got as in density and thickness please?

Cheers.

The foam is 100mm, don't know the density though. The door on the seat side allows me to slide the fridge out:

Fruit and soft drinks are optional :wink:

The other door allows me too put longer items, such as the windbreak, in against the bulkhead.

I've seen folk use less. Our previous van had 100mm foam too. It's fairly dense and very comfortable :D

Cool. If you've had it twice that's me sold.

Other people have said 4" so that's me sold. Cheers Will.
