I've done a few bits to the van recently, finished carpeting the racking and added a few other bits in bobs in the rear. Also decided to plastidip the rear windows and get rid of the rear wiper!

Haven't done anything to the van in a while but this weekend I've had a chance to do a few bits, bought some touran door strips which were already silver but had a few marks so decided to spray them. Not finished yet though as the lacquer I bought was crap any ran out of a spare tin I had doing the rear door handle.

I've also been tweaking the back even more.

Image

Image

Made a drawer aswell waiting on carpet and some sliders to finish it off, I may put a false floor in there aswell with a hinge flap on the front to access my rods and long drill bits then the top half can be for storage or for my drills, undecided yet.

A few more from this weekends efforts

Gave these and the rear door handle a final coat of lacquer
Image

Carpeted the drawers and added some tiny castors as the sliders are shorter than the drawer so they take the weight off a bit.

Added some elastic to these to stop them falling out

Image

I had some spare carpet so decided to sort out the threshold as it was scratched to buggery.

Rear door plinth installed

Image

Forgot to mention the other week I had it remapped 😁😁

Image

I've also bought a snow foam lance which is more satisfying than it should be

Worst job ever!!! I've done mine twice.

There are no magic solutions. Panel wipe and your thumb is the only safe way if you don't want to ruin your paint. A toffee wheel will get it off but I wouldn't touch my paintwork with one personally.

Tar and Glue remover like the detailers use?

It's devastating knowing I have no choice but to the other side now 🤦🏼‍♂️

Yeah I expect that would do the job I guess I'm just hoping someone will come on here knowing an exact thing that basically makes it just wipe off.
