Thanks Steamo & Superlogo the wood doesn't take too long to do, still to give it a coat of matt lacquer.
I have been burning the candle at both ends the last wee while! Getting a few hours kip most nights!

Tonight was a good mile stone got the rear swing arms on and the vans back on the deck.





Going to get van pushed out of garage at weekend for a clean down and a chance to view it from a distance Happy

You asked for it!
Got the van pushed out last week & blew the dust off and cleaned the garage out a bit.





Whilst the van was out decided to strip of the old paint from one of the seats & re paint it using Bradleys leather paint from Frost, I got then to colour match it to the dash colour I'm using.



Ready for the paint



The paint is real thin so its lots of light coats, had to use the airbrush to get into the folds of the leather.




Well happy with the results, one down one to go!




Had the interior bug so had to sit the dash in place.



Kev finished off the rear wiring, all power going through maxi fuses.


Lights are go! the zenon's are amazing love


I have to say a big thanks to Kev for all the wiring work, all circuits are live and well & he is a happy man(see below pic)


To keep with my green theme here is my screen wash bottle.

Looking ace - really like the smooth painted dash, suprised me because I wasn't sure about that when you mentioned it.
