Going for satin black bumper plastics and grill and badges colour coded the same as the wheels even thinking maybe the load area roof lining done the same colour

So been a while. Few pictures changes the caliper colour and sprayed the front badge to match the interior. Fitted some iron on vw badges to the head rests that i picked up from camper jam and replaced the old horrid lino and 6mm ply for some nicer lino and 18mm ply.

Planning on getting the wheels and bodywork sorted soon.

Bit of luck the other half will have finish the curtains too.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Some galv conduit bits welded together and plastic bushes in the end to protect fork from the steel

Progress update today i upgraded the headunit complete with GPS and DAB aeriels. Tried to make it look factory as possible even made my own USB socket just awaiting for my reverse camera to arrive. Android Auto is epic!

One question does anyone know which wire at the back of the light switch i can come off for the feed from the side lights to the illumination wire on the backof the head unit. TiAImageImage[IMG]https://uploads.tapatalk-

It screws into the floor using some thumb turn screws and i put some tee nuts in the underside of the flooring so it's easily removable but very secure
