    Not bad for a re-purpose job. Always satisfying when you can do something for nothing but a bit of elbow grease & some staples.

    I don't know if you have seen that some of the shorter vans with full island beds have the mattress in 2 pieces & a flip up shelf/extension arrangement on the end of the bed. This shelf enables you to lengthen the bed when both bits of the mattress are laid flat next to each other. During the day, the narrower bit of the becomes the backrest of the day bed & the main mattress is pushed up & the shelf folded down/retracted giving you more floor space.

    Thanks - Yeah, know what you mean. Could work for easier access during the day, but would still be back in the same situ at night. Iím not seeing it as a huge issue though.

    Spent a few hours fettling one of the cupboards into place - slow work but should look factory when I'm done hopefully. Pics when it's all done, not much to see at the moment.

    Productive weekend overall. 👍

    I have plates for the 101 that are - VLR 101. Probably canít afford to drop the VLR bit by the looks of it. Homestar's new home?

    I'm busy saving up for the Perentie parts you are going to sell me.

    Got one side cupboard finished. Lots of stuffing around cutting the old bits down but worth it. I did make a big stuff up cutting the top - I made a pattern up - that ended up a bit small by the time I trimmed it all down. I knew I needed to add 10mm to each edge that was showing. A mate showed up for a cuppa before I cut the top and and you guessed it, when I got back to it, I just used the template and didn't add the 10mm. 😩


    Had to use the black quad to cover the gap - same stuff as runs all around the floor so not too out of place but not what I had in mind.


    Bottom opening will stay open for shoe storage, etc. Have some trims to fix around the opening once the glue has dried on the last bit of trim that the clamps are holding on, but that's another day...

    I feel for you but only you know that it wasn't designed like that. When I built my van's kitchen & pushed all 3 big drawer fronts through the table saw at the same setting, 20mm too small!! At least it was a consistent stuff up. I didn't have enough ply to redo so stuck some solid edging on to hide the stuff up. Sitting here typing this, I can see the stuff up & it still bugs me but 3 years later, I still haven't fixed it.

    So keep it as long as possible for as long as possible & measure twice, cut once & still stuff it up.
