Looking good Ben. We are both on a mission just now !

For your overhead locker, have you come flush off of the sliding door runner housing, or lifted it that side ?

Been thinking on mine for a while. I kept the top part of my bulkhead, so deliberating on whether to keep it level with that or just secure it flat to the runner housing,....

Going to change my dash speakers as well. Current ones are shoite
Vanfest 2011 - Skittles Vodka
Camperjam 2011 tug n chug team
Camperjam 2013 - Lost to the Bodybuilders, but delivered in a Syncro
Tough Mudder - Fried Piggy For - Charity

So, Rae is a girl then yeah.

The tambour door I had made up from Gallant. I had to modify a couple of 90 degree channels to work in the way I wanted. Thy're not a cheap solution, but they should work well.

The dash speakers are these http://uk.infinitysystems.com/product-detail-new-infinity/kappa-429i.html, though I got them from an eBay store for about £50. Was a 10 minute job to take old one out and fit these, I had to cut off a couple of the tabs and obviously not use the grilles they come with. Fitted the original dash grilles back over and to look at its no different, but the sound is day and night!

Yes it's flush with the top of the sliding door runner, sits on top of it at the left (as you look at it), I re s
Used the original cab headlining stuff in the cupboard and carpeted it over, looks neat and I'm quite pleased with it, it's definitely a useable size locker

I've been flat out working on the van at every opportunity - but not had chance to update here for a while:

Built the back wall - this bit will divide the van so I can build the shower room 






I was then also able to fit the fridge




Then install the overhead cupboard I made:




Had a couple of bits of stainless steel cut to form a splash back:


Sorted the electrics, now have lights working and connected up water tank and pump etc - have running water too!



Fitted doors and drawer




Getting there now - Still have some shelves to fit in the cupboards, hot water system, shower and bog room etc.  I'm probably going to just fit solar panel in the next couple of weeks and leave the shower room and seats upholstery etc until next year - just want to have a break and do some camping!
