For those who wanted to know I bought this carpet:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8m-Mega-Stretch-Van-Lining-Carpet-8-x-High-Temp-Glue-/180838211323

I bought 8m of it, but I did have some left over. I also carpeted the floor of the van.

I would love some nice wheels, but finding some to fit is proving a problem.

I remember reading this thread when you first got the van and thinking you had quite a big job on your hands! Blown away by the work you've done on it. Top job

Ok, been away from the forums for a little while, but as Summer is approaching I'm starting to look at the getting the van improved a little.

Firstly, battery is flat again!!! Not sure what's draining it - but I haven't used it much so I will keep an eye on it.

Second, over the winter I noticed the doors/window seals are letting in a lot of water. Particularly in the driver side footwell. Any tips on re-sealing doors and windows?

Petrol gauge is broke, but I know this is a common issue.

Going to change the flooring, as I used van carpet, but I think some lino would be more hard wearing.

Still on the look out for some alloys

Yes, getting it ready for a camping trip this weekend.

Removed the battery and gave it a charge. Give it a little drive around this week then off to Somerset on the weekend.
