April 25th Update

On Saturday, I spent some time with a friend at his factory - he runs a shop fitting business - and started work on the bed supports and seats.







And on Sunday I took a trip to the local Sunday market to get some decals and Autobarn for pinstripe tape.

I spent today dodging the rain to get everything stuck on :)

Mission Control build update 6th May.

I managed to spend another day in the factory and with a lot of help (well, I did a lot of supervising) built the seats!





You can also see the genuine vinyl wood flooring ;)

The seat bases lift up to allow for heaps of storage in the boxes!!



The end of each seat has storage for a jerrycan - one side is water and the other is diesel. Just in case.



The TV is up and running!



2 x lighter sockets and 2 x USB chargers.

A little over 2 weeks before I leave and I still don't have a bed!! Argh!!!

Getting close now. You'll make it (with a few late nights)!

Are you going for the table that drops down to fill the gap between the seats and forms the base for the bed concept?

Wowee, thats looking very neat now! If you haven't already, make sure you round the edges of those seats or you're going to do yourself an injury sitting on them for any period of time!

With that much glue, new foam, and new carpet in the back, you might be best off to remove the windscreen and rear doors until you get to Adelaide!

Mission Control build update 12th May.

Well, the seats are all but done!! I picked up the last of the foam on Friday night and have been busy learning how to do upholstery. I think I did ok :) They almost look like bought ones!!





The bed base got built today, too! A little more work to get it all fitted, photos tomorrow :)

Looks like its taking shape quite nicely! This decals look good, but I feel the external appearance isn't quite complete, may I suggest a few minor additions:
