    Could there be a water tank underneath? I am just guessing, sorry.
    Bit of a time capsule there! Wonder if you have any credit left on that mobile phone? LOL
    What are your plans? I hope you are going to try to keep it as original as possible. If the furniture is too damaged, are you going to have copies made?

    They are called belly pans, you don't see they on bays very often

    Yeah since its a devon camper and there aren't many in Aus, I will surely be keeping it original....
    I was having a think about reproducing the old furniture inside as some of it is actually damaged, some badly.....

    The bloke who owned it first planned on going round Oz and put a phone in there, not sure if it works though haha.

    Thats good to hear. They dont look very complicated to replicate if you need to.

    I'll bet she let out a sigh of relief when you took all that stuff out! Weights for weightlifting???

    There is draws and cupboards all over the place, really was built to save space...

    I'd imagine it would get pretty pricey to replicate all the draws, but that will be so far into the future, when I have more money haha

    Harry, that's really cool!
    I was going to build a seat like that facing backwards for the rear of my bus.
    Its given me some design ideas.
    Have fun with it, man.

    You'll have to come and have a look dude, its got cupboards and storage space all over the place, it has these orignal draws at the back which are really cool, pitty all the wood is flaking off......

    But all in all some really good designing and you'd be able to get some great inspirations for your bus I'm sure......

    Nice work Vin. Looks awesome.

    Please just put on a coat of clear :D

    Mmm yeah thats weird how there are belly pans. They are on my double door for extra strength. I dont know why they would be on a normal bay.

    Nice work Vinny.

    Any low-light is a good low-light.

    I think those belly pans were mainly to protect the underside from salt damage due to snow covered road doused with salt to get rid of the snow and ice. It was very common for German delivered busses aparently.

    Cheers,

    Can also find them on double doors and buses with sunroofs to improve structural integrity.
