Besides, I was on Instagram and saw this cute set up I fell in love with. Because what I am NOT in love with are roof top tents, especially in a storm, or if I forget I am 12 ft off the ground in the middle of the night dying for a pee. Plus, if the rooftop tent WASN'T on, we could dash off easily and still be ready to roll. Or sleep roll.
We have a mate on the coast who has a business doing up VW campers. He had soundproofing he could sell us immediately at trade prices. Very easy to instal and the sound immediately changed on the inside. It will make a helluva difference when we have stones flick up from the road.. dull thuds over tinks any day, please.
You may also notice the laminate floorboards. We had them leftover from a bus build, and they are pretty good quality so we thought they may as well form a nice floor too.
To get a flat surface for the ply to rest on and then continue with the rest of the build, we utilised yoga mats that I had for, well, teaching yoga that I never got around to much. They are dense and will soundproof a little further. Contact adhesive held them in place. We did some test drumming on all surfaces - sounds good.
You have no idea how many vehicle interiors we have done with a handsaw. This time Jamie downright refused to do another build without decent equipment. As things go, Facebook marketplace was full of people selling table saws this weekend, so we picked one up for $120 which was a downright bargain. Cuts beautifully.
First step was making everything nice and flat.
It's quite hard to explain how it'll all come together. On the right hand side goes the 12 volt fridge and the cooker, and on top of that will also be a nice benchtop made of recycled wood from another job. That's gluing currently - more on that next post. On the left hand side, there will be storage and a fold out bed situation - again - you'll see that when it all comes together. I'd love to write more about it now but I'm totally knackered. Another full day of building tomorrow - hope to get it done so we can finally go camping.
Nice upgrades and I like improving car's from what I he factory built 👍

Wait so you drove from Australia to India? How does that work?
Nothing like a few tweaks here and there to make things (a little more) bearable. I'm keen to see it all together and tickety-boo. Nice work.
Are you serious? I have to get an instashit account to follow? Come onnnn [Said in whiney don't want instashit voice.]
May not be original inside, but it will make life on the road much more enjoyable. He, and you, sure do lovely work!
Looking good so far.
Surprisingly roomy in the back!
