As much as they are lovely to look at I think its time for one or two to go. Definitely could do with room in the garage and extra cash could easily fund a few new additions to the Caddy. One of my first race bikes was an SE Quad Angle, mid 90's.

Any pictures of the seats @Cgiorgi , do you mind me asking what you paid for them?
The sound deadening I used is in a post earlier in the thread, its from a place called car builders in Victoria, they have quite a few distributors though so theres probably one local to you. Prices were quite reasonable and the product is good quality, I sourced the carpet locally though just to save on the shipping cost. As for hours I've put in, not exactly sure, quite a lot though. Sound deadening was the best part of 10-14 hours, takes ages to cut around the wheel wells and line inside the rear panels. Carpeting, cutting the timber for the floor and windows and the suede headliner was 3-4 days, not full days but still plenty of hours. I went a little over board though on the sound deadening(SD), the roof and floor are now four layers thick. roof has SD sheets, original headliner, 6mm foam and suede. Floor is 12mm Acoustic sound absorbing foam, 9mm marine ply, 6mm foam and carpet. I made the floor in 2 pieces so its removable, that way I can pull it out to clean plus if I want to carry anything dirty or heavy then it can go directly onto the original metal floor and not wreck the carpet. I would like to maybe show the van one day so I took my time with everything, plus this was my first time doing most of this stuff so was learning along the way.

I'd happily have put my original one on show, but have no desire to buy a new one since I'll never ride it! Self control does exist haha!

Seats were $750+$250 freight, VW said they have a van coming next month with most the specs I was after, so gives me time to get all my parts :D

Great work on the van mate!! And loving the bike!!

Is the ply floor secured down with anything? Or does gravity just keep it in place?

I’m currently sound deadening mine and having pulled up the original ply flooring I’m not sure how to re-secure once carpeted.

Cheers 👍🏼

@Rigguz Thanks mate, can't wait to get the next few things done but finding spare time has not been easy!
I've made the floor in 2 pieces and I wanted it fully removable quickly. So I took my time (a good hour or more!!) to trim the timber to fit very snug, now with the carpet and foam layers it stays without the need for fixings no problem. DM (or just post it if your comfortable) me your email address and I can send you some pictures if you like.

Oh and good news on the potential van @Cgiorgi
