Gaz stove

The camping season is here and I needed to have something to cook a full english breakfast on for the morning. I have made a small unit to hold the stove I bought at Vanfest last year. I will do a proper unit later this year.

Optima Yellow Battery

My leisure battery doesn't hold the charge anymore so I decided to buy an Optima battery. A lot of people are saying that they are very good so I will give it a go.

They call it a deep cycle battery. It can be charged and discharged many times. Apparently it's perfect for heavy use.

Infinity Speakers in place.

It's time to make a new speaker board to match the new floor.

Board ready to be drilled.

One Infinity speaker in place.

And the Amp.

This is the final result in open position.

Seat Position.

And bed position.

Here we can see the recess for the frame of the seat...

And here for the frame of the bed.
Can't wait to go camping now...

This is how the interior looked this morning before I decided to do a make over.

The first step was to remove the carpet to put down some MFD sheet to get a flat surface.

Then I have put in position the first piece of flooring

And the rest...

The board went back in place under the seat.

This piece of wood looks a lot nicer than the previous one.
That's it, job done for today. Tomorrow I will cut the holes for the speakers and I will connect the Amp.

Lap Belt

Today, I have received some Lap Belts. They came from ISP West in California.

I already have 1 lap Belt in the middle so I used the same bolt for the new belts.

I just had to drill a new one on each side.

Bit of silicon to waterproof the holes
