    No paint elsewhere, did the graphics come off well and the remaining paint just polished up?

    Graphics come of fairly easy, bit of heat and some panel wipe Then mopped the lot with G3

    Just the caravelle seats, some off-road tyres, maybe a bull bar too

    What's the plans with this one? Just a RnR bed, or kitchen pod too?
    Was talking about the o/s caravelle panels, ad the carpet is a different shape because of the o/s slider on a velle.

    A full camper conversion is the plan, but will do it over time (and when I can afford it), windows, insulation and carpet liner first

    I'm not going to bother with the interior panels, just the seats and the rails

    If you going to use the rails you will need to raise the floor a bit with plywood mate, so get the door thresholds from a caravelle or shuttle as well as they are taller

    I went and picked up a wing from Silverlake on Saturday morning. It has some marks on it so will repaint and fit it when I colour code the rear bumper

    Also removed all the original ply lining to find a load of shit under it! Hoovered it out but needs washing down

    Good question! I may keep some of or all of them and get some of the shuttle plastic discs so they sit nicely in the plywood/altro flooring

    kinda like this

    Not done much to this apart from drive it, so decided to get on with it.

    Had to cut the the original bulkhead mountings out which were brazed in from factory
