    Well done - looks great!

    Must be a fair bit easier to drive with that steering wheel!

    Hi,
    Looks very different...comfy looking seats and the door cards look much better than the ply ones. Great stuff.
    Cheers,
    David

    What a beauty! Sheepskin covers - man I was not a fan at all til I threw some on for roadworthy! Never looking back? Cushy.

    That USB thingo is the goods. Nicely done. Very nicely done. Some people call that a resto and whack it on carsales for twice the dollarz!

    Mick, I'll be interested to see how you mounted the 3 plug adaptor in your van. Mine is stuffed into a hole a previous owner had cut in the dash of OSI. I'll have to look at something similar for Wanda The White Wedge.Is it wired direct to the cigarette lighter socket or does it plug into the socket? I know nothing of this new fangled electricity.:D

    I'm interestred in your skylight

    Hey Ozzie - I have the normal white fiberglass lids that have been sealed closed to prevent water ingress.

    I have been trying to get them replaced with a clear skylight that has a winding mechanism to open/close - but only things close are for caravans/motorhomes and are not the right dimensions

    The one in you photo looks just like what i am after - do you have any details

    Thanks
    Ken

    Sorry Ken no details it was on the kombi when i brought it and mine is sealed shut as well,up close it is a rough job but the main thing is it does not leak.
    I am looking for other ideas so if i come up with something or see something i will let you know.

    Nice job Mick. The timber floor really gives the interior a lift...
