The pockets are genius! Been wanting something like that but didn't want a plastic and mesh one so this is perfect!

Hey dude, ah I thought I had the map sussed! Still, two great places, I know the lakes well but have only been to Dartmoor a couple of times. I’m josheightynine on Instagram, no van stuff on there at the moment though, it’s mostly just photos from trips to the hills. I’ve got some vinyl lined up for my roof lining but I spoke to a vinyl fitter the other day and he wasn’t sure it would work, trial and error I guess! Going to give it a go and hope for the best. I’ll get a build thread up on here soon, not much to show yet, sound deadening and insulation done and I had the leisure battery fitted this week. The list just gets longer though doesn’t it?!

Will you attach the vinyl to the factory roof panel?

We've decided to add not leisure battery and just use a decent portable power pack and have some USB rechargable lights. Too used to camping!

I’m cutting a new one out of ply, planning on using some primer on it too to make the surface a bit smoother, and maybe some of the high temp adhesive spray. Watch this space!

I feel you on the camping part, the main reason we bought the van was because we were fed up of arriving at the hills at midnight on a Friday night and trying to find somewhere to chuck a tent up or a campsite to sneak into. I was just going to leave it as a panel van, then I found this forum! I have found myself mourning for my tent slightly but there’s backpacking trips lined up once all this madness is over.

Must have a chat with you about how you did the inside switch on the tailgate, I need that in my life! Great idea!

Testing out another pocket idea which I've seen on the forum.

This is just a prototype, I plan to replace these door cards with some 4mm ply.
