    Interior painted with a Duram "Texture" paint, very light grey. Doesnt look too shabby I think, very nice thick and easy paint.

    Interior painted a light grey textured paint........damn expensive stuff, but came out quite OK, I think.

    Again, not a pro job by a LOOOONG shot, but looks OK.

    Its going to Tentco on Monday for some canvas work.......zipped fronts on all the openings, etc etc

    Hi Petri.

    I looked through your thread and modification. A very interesting and good looking job you are doing.
    There has been a lot of advice given and suggestions made which you are taking to heart.
    If i may throw a few peanuts! Keep the weight as low as possible. Use aluminium, plywood and composite materials as much as possible.
    If you are not rebuilding for re-sale, then it does not matter what it looks like inside. Satisfy your own needs and do the build as such.
    Then lastly you will need to send us a picture of the smile going around your face, after you have used it the first time.
    Doing a successful build like this is very, very satisfying.
    I will watch with interest from now on.

    Pieter - you Guys build a van from SCRATCH man, this is just playing around. I can do NUTTING with my hands!! But must say, I enoy the planning sort of stuff here, VERY VERY satisfying for me. Not the best job by a VERRRRY long shot, but very very sarisfying.

    I'm not doing this for re-sale again......but must say, I'd sell this in a jiffy, just to take on the next project again!!! (just not now or in Summer, maybe next winter).

    And once again THANX A MILL for all the inputs in here, like Pieter said you guys have really helped me as an absolute "newbie", and this is much appreciated!!

    Quickly popped it at Tentco in town........looking DAMN nice, even if I have to say so myself. The grey canvas looks nice with the light interior.

    Almost done inside, only things left is

    1) Lighting - Roof light, reading downlights
    2) Wiring - multi plug inside and one outside, thats it
    3) Floor covering, already have everything there
    4) Fitment of frame for fridge
    5) Skirtings along walls........will get to that later.

    Once again a HUGE thanks for all the edvise in here, its really VERY valuable!!
