    Unfortunately some lovely people stole our trusty t5 in October.
    The van never turned up so we had to start the job of replacing it.
    Found this 18 plate 150 highline and set to work on it late November.

    All the work is done by me except the roof fitting. 20170802_204250.jpg 20181110_120522.jpg

    I used to be an auto trimmer and luckily I have a machine still in the man shed.
    This will come in handy as I have issues with plastic and the need to cover it up.

    Wrapped all the van shades in leather along with a mix of leather and the suade on the panels. Screenshot_20190112-181223_Gallery.jpg

    Got a Ford boot handle and fit that to the tailgate panel.
    Added more leather and fit that.

    With the camper part nearly done.
    The cabs still full of plastic.

    I took the roof liner out.
    And added more leather.

    Decided I should buy some caravelle door cards.
    German ebay for these.
    Split them all apart and again more leather and alcantara.
    Big job so many plastic welds.
    Also did all the pillars.

    And as it sits today.
    Door cards done and in along with all the pillars.

    Leaves me the dash to sort out.
    This will be wrapped in leather and alcantara.
    I will make a cab carpet and get the wheels on.
    Hopefully be finished shortly.

    Excellent build @Timr. :thumbsup:. Even better that you are doing all the trimming etc yourself. Cracking!

    Need to get the tyres fitted on these may wait for the better weather and road salt to end.
    Trim the sun visors next job.

    Cheers guys.
    It's a big job when you start on all the plastic.
    Unfortunately a bit of a forced project.
    The t5 was all trimmed out.
    This one's better spec and materials so should be worth it in the end.

    Long slog if your doing every bit yourself.
    Think it's moved twice since we got it end of November.

    We have never had anything stolen so a bit of an eye opener.
