When I first starting working on the van, I was too excited to take any photos.

It did not take me long to start pulling things apart. First to go was the end of the u-shaped bench seat. That was quickly followed by layers of vinyl floor covering.

By the time I thought to take any photos, my Dad, nephew and I had pulled out all the soft furnishings, ripped up the flooring, and removed all the cupboard doors.

Pulling apart the cupboards

Fortunately this was a few weeks after Dad had set off some bug bombs – I met lots of spiders but they were already dead. Sad.


The floor us in pretty good condition in most places (there are even remnants of old newspapers which made for interesting discoveries for my nephew).
