    Yes the plan is to eventually convert it into a full camper, but for this year it will just be windows and trim to make it a bit nicer to drive and sleep in at the the shows.

    Cutting the windows was a doddle, the carpet is a bit awkward, its not perfect, but pretty good for a first attempt.

    Just got the other side to do now

    that looks great, make everything removeable so at least its still a van!

    i have a 3 seat bench to go in mine but im going to have to buy 3 lengths of that unwin rail stuff. i need 1.8m lengths as well. so the seat will go all the way front to back.

    it will be worth it tho as making it removeable means the van is still a van

    yeh, its this stuff - https://unwinsafety.com/shop/rail-products.html

    no reason why you couldn't use the fixings and use it for everything though. i plan to make a table for mine and see how it goes from there, plus use it for the seats of course.

    Ah yeah I know, the stuff they use in Minibuses & Coaches etc. The Caravelle /California rail is neat solution but way to expensive. That Unwin stuff will have more flexibility as well.

    My only gripe with removable seats is storing the blooding things, when I have my Shuttle I was storing seats from that and my Caddy Maxi Life But like you say, with that Unwin you could slide the seats right forwards so you could still use it as a van

    Carpeted the insert panels.

    A bit more trimming fiddling and the headliner sorting out and it will be ready for Bugjam

    Oh, and I bought the taller Kombi threshold/step to compensate for the 12mm ply on the floor
