Some pics of my home made interior.

Post by matt d » Sun May 13, 2012 6:59 pm

It's not finished yet but is getting there slowly.
It's basically 12mm ply cut and screwed together and then oak veneered. Father-in-law gets me the black laminate from his work and i glue and trim it in place. No real creature comforts, just the fridge to go in which we will sit next to the bulkhead seat when we want to use it.
Image
Image
I'm going to make another cabinet to cover the remaining bulkhead you can see.
Image
Father-in-law has a nice piece of black laminate for the top of the bulkhead seat which i'm going to trim in the same aluminium edging as the countertop.
Image
Image
Image
Image
A shot of how we fitted the headliner with the channels that usually the boards slot into either side of the fresh air vent.
Image
Going to put the leisure battery out of the way here. I'd prefer it not in the engine bay.
Image
The leisure battery will be powering my new beer fridge. These are a lot of money but are efficient and work really well which is nice if you like cold beer :wink:
Image
Been putting off the awkward rear quarter panel trim. Will tackle it when i've run out of other things to do.
Image

I should be having a delivery of foam for the bulkhead seat and rear shelf tomorrow so i'll get the missus to start on the covers. I have mesh grey covers to go on the front seats but i need to have the frames powder coated and the padding replaced so that's a job for the winter months.
Hope you all like the pics. :D

Thanks. Veneering is quite easy. And hides a multitude of sins. I bought a large roll from an eBay shop for £50 and it arrived damaged although it was mostly usable so I complained and they sent me another one and didn't want the other one back. So I had enough to do the lot :D

Will keep you all updated.

The foam has arrived for the seat and the rear pad for the shelf over the engine

Image

Threshhold strip fitted over the weekend.

Image

Beer fridge split charge and leisure battery wired up (I know the battery has yet to be secured)

Image

The beer fridge plugs in here. I've had it running for much of the weekend and it works a treat. Very efficient and doesn't drain the battery too quick.

Hi, I Got it from b+q. Was in there for something else and it caught my eye, cost less than a tenner.

Mark, there's a few beers in there waiting for you. :wink: that fridge is so good I ended up freezing the milk at croyde a couple of weeks ago.
