Everything looks really neat, but you could do with a main fuse on this battery (like 60A right next to the terminal) just in-case of short circuits!

Cheers,

Well spotted. :D I have got an inline fuse the other end of that cable in the engine bay. Better off there as its connected to the starter battery and protects the whole length of it. There are grommets where it passes through the sheet metalwork but you can't be too carefull
There's also a little fusebox I've installed for the leisure circuits. My fridge has a fuse on it but I've still run it's socket off the fusebox and I have spare connections for anything I want to add.
Takes some working out.

Sorry for poking up an old thread. But can you put an leisure battery inside a vehicle? should it be in a sealed box of some sort.

Love the colour combination on this, thinking similar curtains / or an Orla Keily type pattern for our bus. Thanks for posting the pictures really given me some ideas.

Where did you get the oak verneer from.
I like the look of them all and that rear cupboard looks perfect with the trim and black doors.

Like it - Dove Blue as well, paint finish inside, looks better than mine.... I'm thinking of putting a seat behind bulkhead, with enough room for cooler to side, but like what you've done. Can I ask how the veneer works, is this glued on, what type of wood have you used ? Where did you source doors from or is that some sort of veneer as well..
Thanks,
SW.

Shame Matt doesn’t appear to be active on the forum anymore, I’m going to be updating my interior over the winter and want to base it on Matts work.
Shout up if you’re still around, Matt, I was hoping you had a few more photos of your build.
