    A little bit of progress to share. We have been working on the floor which is pretty well complete, although it will need to come up again to route in the under floor heating piping and to paint the boards.

    Insulation (20mm marmox board, the aft part made up of 3 6mm sheets temporarily as we ran out of 20mm):

    Followed be 12mm marine plywood:

    Machined to fit original floor fittings:

    Fittings installed:

    Its turned out well, and should give a nice sound base for the rest of the interior build.

    I finally got around to purchasing and collecting a new sliding door. Our old one had a crease in it which was rather unsightly. Fitting of the new door meant that the last window could go in:

    You may also notice the Mercedes roof bars on that last pic. I decided fitting these would enable easy fitment of things like solar panels, awning, work lights and driving lights as the build goes on.

    On the inside, we're currently working at lining out the whole van with silent coat sound deadening:

    We've finished the load space roof so far...its quite a time consuming process.

    Couple other bits and pieces been going on behind the scenes. I got all of the plastics back on, however before I fitted them I pulled all the rubber bungs out behind them and sprayed dinitrol into the sill space. Before the plastics were fitted, a slop of wax oil applied for good measure:

    From what i've read, these things rust...from the inside and the outside. Hence the OTT rust prevention measure going on.

    And here is a pile of things that have turned up:

    Just need the time to crack on with the interior now! In that pile somewhere is the hot water system (hydronic II, helios fans, 40l surecal calorifier etc.). I've no affiliation, but so impressed with the service I want to acknowledge the company I got it all from...melloronline. Above and beyond help, some very challenging technical questions, and if he (Stuart, the owner), couldn't help, he got in touch with Eberspacher directly to make sure I got the info I needed. So thanks to Stuart!

    Thats all for now...more in a couple of weeks I hope
