A rubbish day for photography, which is why you see her on the washer! The paint comes alive in full sun, so I'll have to wait for a few days

Might go crazy and enter the MOM!

Cheers,

Chris

Very nice and creative job on this build. Are all the trims BMF or is it a mix of P/E and/or Alclad finish?

All BMF. Chrome for the majority and matt aluminium for the ribbed panel on the rear quarter panel.

Cheers,

Chris

Sweet looking build, I bet that gave you some real challenges doing that conversion, great job on the BMF work too!

The 'interface' between the bed & cabin was the PITA part of the build. The rest was fairly easy,
the roof cut suprisingly so. With hindsight, I should have chopped the roof to get a stock window
opening.

Thanks for the BMF compliment too!

Cheers,

Chris
