    Ebay. About £7. Had to replace a couple of door card clips as they shattered when I took it apart

    New seats fitted today, kept with the green theme, not to everyone’s taste.

    Fitted the Vw undertray today, as the rain stopped.
    Firstly up on the ramps, as for some strange reason the shape of my 50 year old middle regions won’t fit under the front bumper :whistle:
    Then, 6 off existing M8 holes retapped, as the threads were a little tight and using a small amount of copper slip on the new bolts will help if/when the need arises to take them off again to drop the tray for a service etc.
    For the rear, Vw kindly supply an expanding plastic plug that holds the tray up whilst getting the bolts in. The front has 3 extended lugs that sit on top of the back of the bumper.
    This very easy mod is well worth the 20 mins of fitting time and the expense if, like me you will be keeping the Camper for a very long time.
    This protects the underbelly from all the crud and salt from winter driving that would normally get thrown up.
    Hopefully the little bit of sound deadening will help also. :thumbsup:

    I almost hit the order button on that grille, myself. I don’t know whether I really like it or like the idea of it.
    But the van is looking good, mate. Sounds like a busy weekend paid off well :thumbsup:

    Finally got around to making these into something usable. We put each heated pad into a sleeve which my wife made from spare fleece she had lying around. On the underside of the pad, we put a piece of cut down old camping mat which was also lying around - this insulates the heater element from the van floor. I added a connector which was also in the spares drawer.
    Probably a bit over the top, but since when has that stopped us modifying our vans ;). And they cost £7.50.

    Borrowed a spare ramp in my mates workshop and ran all the cabling in the van for the leisure battery and my powered undeseat sub. Ran out of time to make all the connections and fit everything but at least I can do all these from inside the van with the doors shut even if it's raining. Happy with that

    Finally got the caravelle sliding door cards fitted, retrimmed the centre panels in black alcantara to match the new rear seats (xmas hols project). Pleased with how they look, biggest hassle was getting the metal clips installed, few bad words uttered on numerous occassions 20191130_113453.jpg

    Finished this little project off, more than happy with the result

    Now for the next project... Honestly this being made redundant and on enforced gardening leave before I start my next job is getting quite expensive
