Van Rebuild.


Hi All,

Hope every one is going okay, i have been plodding a long with the van making some headway. Some of the of the pictures in the last post showed the van on its side don't know how that happened but those pics wasn't the only thing on there side i end up on my side whilst carrying some propeller plate for the front stone guard the plates okay didn't get damaged myself just a few bruises. Since the last post i fitted the fridge in place and stuck the foam insulation into the four season vents as they wont be to far away from being fitted. The roof is now fitted and i am putting the propeller plate down the front and sides of the van, the electrician is coming tomorrow to wire up the 240 volt fuse box so i can fit the 12 volt gauges and switches. In the pictures following you can see the fridge compressor which is sitting next to the fridge under one of the seats as opposed to at the bottom of the fridge giving you more room in the fridge, i still have to put the vent in for the compressor so it can breath okay. You might notice pieces of blue masking tape stuck to the van they are there to remind me where the wiring is going through the wall frames to avoid drilling into them. The old car is a fiber glass replica of a model A it will eventually be finished one day but no rush.

Kind Regards,

Alan,20180726_130628.jpg20180726_141733.jpg20180726_130557.jpg20180726_141258.jpg20180729_113152.jpg20180729_113136.jpg20180729_132623.jpg
