Furniture Update

So yet again it's been a while since my last post, but this time I've got something to show for the time.

The main cupboard / wardrobe, with the tambour door fitted.

The lower shelf isn't secure in yet, as I need to make a trapdoor in it to access the Leisure battery.

Central  cupboard finished which will house the water carrier and gas cylinder.  Also behind the door will be a small concealed cutlery drawer.

The 'ikkle drawer!

Next up will be fitting and securing the furniture in place, then starting to wire up the electrics.

Start of final construction

After finishing the mock furniture, it's time to start the proper units.  I have opted for a driftwood units, topped with a black granite effect worktop.  All constructed with 15mm lightweight ply.

I've started on the large unit at the back, and the unit to house the fridge and the gas/water.  I'll get some more photos as the build progresses.

Lots to be getting on with over the next few days, I'll try and keep this updated as much as possible.

New stoppers

In a break from the usual blog posts about converting the van, this one is about basic maintenance.

The discs were looking a bit crusty on the front and back, so its time to replace the lot.  Ok crusty might be an understatement, these things were knackered!!

Only one small snag, and that was the NSR calliper was seized, so that's been replaced,

New stoppers all finished!  Now to get back on with the conversion.

Mock Design Complete

I've finally finished mocking the interior for the van.  I've changed a few bits around and chnaged my mind countless times, but I've now finally settled on a configuration that works for me.  I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Now to work out a small cutlery draw
