Just finished off fitting bits of the headliner yesterday and front curtain rail. Have trimmed the sink top, just needs ball catch fitting.
Then just rear cupboards to fit.

Then the outside gets a little revamp.

Top of sink unit trimmed around side panel- something Devon didn’t do, but was a great tip from Kevin- well worth doing as it looks so much better.

One cupboard left to fit.

Thanks again to Kevin for direction.

Once that’s done I’m going to fab my own threshold strip,bit of detail work and then it’s done.

Onto the outside jobs then.

Joanne at J&S has done an amazing job......

gear shift rod bushes replaced, odd bits of wiring tidied, splash panel under cab has been powdercoated, and bumpers are away being repainted.
