    Its been in the workshop for just over a month Henry, all the chassis, running gear, flooring etc is now sorted and I am about 20hrs (30%) into polishing and straightening her.
    To be honest I have only just found this site through a friend, otherwise would have started the thread a month back.

    Are you going to replicate the original interior or go with your own ideas ?

    The hardwood exterior plywood flooring is now complete, bolted as per the original build using over 200 coach bolts to secure the flooring and body to the chassis!

    Not sure at the moment Evil, the original was dated but functional with the rear 'wet room' design.
    I have kept all that was salvageable, which was mainly just the corner bath and a couple of sinks but I will probably end up putting them on Ebay to be honest and go with something completely new.

    The interior panelling had to be removed to get at the insulation, which over the past 48yrs had taken a bit of a hammering from a host of weird and wonderful critters!



    With the exception of the 2 front and rear upper corner panels (which are fibreglass on this model and will have all the holes filled and repainted before been reused) the interior panelling will be replaced, mainly due to the amount of holes left by the various original heaters, fans and vents which i am not going to put back in.

    And this is where i am at present folks, after a month on it with about 20hrs into the body restoration with regards to polishing and the odd bit of panel beating as i go.

    - Before -



    - And after -



    Realistically i would like the polishing, rear lights wired (so its legal to tow) and all interior panelling (inc the roof vents fitted) done in the next couple of weeks.
    I will keep the updates coming

    The 2 broken original roof lights and the bathroom fan have now been removed as well as the 100kg+ roof mounted aircon unit!
    4 new 400mm roof lights will be fitted to add a bit of ventilation as well as bringing in more light.
