Nice work Dave!

Loving the trailfork map on the headlining. i've been thinking of similar ideas myself to try and customise the front and rear as the carpet looks a bit boring by itself.

Cheers Kev- Yeh hence why i went for blue carpet and the headlining just for something a bit different! Just got to get those power sockets in and carpeted and should be looking a lot more 'finished'... going to bolt the bike rack in too as it did move about a bit with the downhill bike on.

This thread has inspired me to carpet the rear of my Caddy.
Well done on a brilliant job, Dave.

Pretty sure CalamityKev has a smart alternator setup. The pre facelift bluemotion and the new shape are all smart alternators I'm lead to believe...

Awesome! Show your progress and get a build thread going!! It's really not as hard as you might think.

Big push last night after work to get bits done...

Wired in usb sockets for the rear of the van - charging phone/bike wash. Wiring goes underneath the side step from the rear of the passenger seat and up behind the panelling.

Holes drilled in the side panel for the light switches and charging sockets

Carpeted panel and pushed in the usb and switches - looks neat!

Had an issue with the LEDs not working but turned out to be a dodgy fuse/fusebox connection so need to swop that around when I get a chance.

I also put a matching set of usb and cigarette lighter in the bulkhead so can use them if sat at the side doors.

Finally fitted up and looking swanky! The main bit of the van is now done!!! Just needs some trim for the side steps and rear step, insulation under the floor. Next job is lowering and a bed putting in over Christmas.
