I have been fitting the wooden door panels and drilled the mounting holes.
After that I applied the back site in two layers of yacht varnish and the visible side four layers.
Yesterday evening I already put the cabin ceiling panels in place.

Today I mounted the front door panel including the box which was glued at the back of the panel.
Before that, I sprayed a lot of ML tectyl at the inside of the door.

All the three RH side doors have a wooden panel now and the cabin door is complete.

I've been trying to make brackets to keep the cargo doors opened perpendicular to the bus.
Prototype three is usable and looks better than the other two.
So I will finish these and bring everything to the powder coater as soon as finished.

After prototypes 4, 5 en 6, I chose to use brackets with one hinge point and clamped with self-locking nuts.
After (too) much force, the doors still can turn a large part of the door movement, so no damage does occur immediately.
All these parts will be powder coated.

I installed clamps for fixing the Dormobile roof and already bought some parts for the cargo floor.

I made the cargo floor from two layers of wood, glued together.
