Any chance you could post a link to which led roof lights you bought? Cheers.

What do you think to the DA-110? I'm looking to replace my stereo with something a little more modern!

I'm making the bed in mine a bit narrower than aerobic's but with a pull out section so I've got the choice of a narrow bed with loads of stuff in the van, or putting the bike outside and having a decent width bed. The 'static' section is basically the same width as the narrower barn door so could possibly allow enough space for a third bike, especially if you whip the pedals off.

Nice work mate,

Starting a project myself now, just debating whether or not I need a leisure battery as I'm only wanting to add a few spotlights, a 12V socket and twin USB in the rear. Suppose I could always add it later if I need it?!
