The refit begins

The exciting bit!

I have now started to refit the parts of the campervan that have been painted. Items like the back wall, bathroom/kitchen wall, the kitchen and wardrobe doors, etc. It’s probably best to show you, so here goes…

This is obviously the view from the rear, showing the bathroom and where the gas and water containers will live, which is going to be lined with rubber matting. Oh yeah, and that is the back of the fridge in the middle.

From this angle, you can see the little access door for the hook up socket (bottom left, next to the wheel arch).

A closer look.

The bathroom. I’ve yet to silicone seal where the bathroom cabinet meets the window pillar.

From another angle, showing the fitted bathroom cabinet door and the 12v strip light, which was another eBay bargain. It’s a quality German made motorhome strip light and normally costs around £45, I managed to get it for £7 delivered! Don’t you just love eBay?

Here you can see that all the doors on the kitchen units have been fitted (that reminds me, I must clean the front of that fridge).

The grill pan lined and ready for some toast!

Wardrobe back in and doors fitted.

I’ve also made new side panels because the original ones were pretty crappy and I don’t need the ashtrays! I re-covered the panels in some good quality upholstery fabric that I got from our local charity shop for £1.00.
