So Laura and I have made the “smart” decision to convert a van. The van of choice, a 1997 2.2 diesel Mazda Bongo, which from now on will be referred to as Barry AKA Bazza the Bongo.
After a visit to Washworld immediately after buying Barry to clean his exterior, we then scrubbed his insides (there was a lot of greasy marks) and made a floor template.
We put the foil underlay and plywood floor in pretty soon after, and with a slight bit of bodging we had a solid base to start constructing our seating/storage/sleeping area.
The boxes are made from 12mm plywood with a 2×1 inch timber supporting frame.
Barrys internal makeover is progressing quite quickly so expect ‘Part 2’ soon.
To be continued…
