Caddy Maxi (the chicken van)

Recently purchased a Maxi. I gambled and bought the cheapest I could find. I have a limited budget & will be doing what I can to keep cost down.

Inside was a mess Image. I am not sure it had ever been cleaned. Clearly owned by a plasterer for a while everything is coated in plaster dust. Ply was in bad shape & smelt like chicken poo so had to be ripped out immediately.

Foil backed high density foam. Found a eBay deal Image.

Bonded wood batten on to secure ply inset panel.

Love a bit of camo and it’s really cheap & hard wearing.

I decided to carpet straight to metal work as it was cheaper & I prefer the look. It was however more difficult to get a good finish than I anticipated.

Recycled bottle insulation stuffed in wherever I could fit it. More camo for the factory ply.

I used the old full height ply to make the inset panels.

That's a good start! 8) What other plans do you have for the van?
Good luck!

Thank you. Working on the floor at the moment, will have a removable bike rack. Need to figure out some storage. Collecting some bits for electrics slowly too.
