Hi James

She looks very sweet - love the interior which is next on my list of things to spruce up. Did you pull it out and get it re-fitted? I don't have the budget, skill, time or patience to do that myself so I will thinking more of a paint over on what's there already.

Thanks Sarah.

I stripped it all out and rebuilt everything, inc insulation, carpeting, headlining, woodwork, electrics and gas. I used the old units as a basic template and added bits as I went. Never done anything like that before in my life but just learnt as I went. Took me a year in total and if I'd known that before I began, I probably wouldn't have done it. But I'm pretty pleased with how it's coming on. It's not 100% finished, but it's usable now. When I get a spare afternoon, I'll do a new build thread with proper internal photos.

How's yours now?

Well you should be pretty proud of yourself there then!

Yeh Tink is doing okay, I am sprucing her up internally now and considering a new van for a big adventure that I am starting to plan.

Good stuff.

Yeah, the adventure of it all is what kept me going.
