No pictures, but I got the raging hump with mine, after the windscreen cracked, for no apparent bloody reason at all….!

This will be the fourth poxy windscreen since I’ve had it

Got the floor almost finished (just need to screw it down), fitted the Van-X cab divider and barn door curtains. I'm quite pleased with them, just need to fit a couple of extra press studs to the cab divider curtain so it'll stay up in the corners and be totally "light-tight". Tomorrow I'll carpet and re-fit the wheel arch boxes.

And bit the bullet early and ordered a MFSW. I was going to wait until the New Year but I got slightly over excited :lol:

Noticed that the van has started doing something odd when I lock it - usually it'll beep once when it's locked, and beep twice when unlocked. Today, it's either not beeping at all and about 15-20 seconds later the alarm starts sounding or, it'll lock, then beep once about 10 seconds later (the alarm doesn't sound if it does this). Did a bit of digging on here and saw lots of posts about the high level brake light leaking, so decided to start there - low and behold, two different types of screw holding it in (barely though, they were too small to actually tighten properly). So, took them out, removed the light, applied a little sealant to the gasket and re-fitted it with decent screws. By the time I'd done that it was dark, so tomorrow I'll pull the mechanism out of the door and see if it's full of water.

Ive placed some cables for my audio setup. All speakers will have their own channel and I'm adding a subwoofer and 2 extra speakers in the bulkhead.
Still waiting for some extra Dodomat sheets as.
Also routed the positive cable to the enginebay, still need to connect it to the battery.

I've removed the wheel arches this afternoon as I know some dirt and sand may get stuck up there. This really is a design flaw if you ask me.
The amount of sand, even wet sand is ridiculous.
To prevent this from happening in the future I've 3D printed some caps to fill up the gaps in the cowl.

Fitted and coded my new MFSW . Now I just need to buy the interface for the stereo controls and I can call that little bit done.

Also found the issue with the alarm/central locking - it was water pooling in the lower latch "well" on the big barn door. All dried out, greased and working fine again :D.
