We have officially spent our first night with Pip! Ok, so we were just camped out in my parents driveway, but that still counts as camping right?
It started off well, comfy and warm despite the raging gales and rain outside. But early in the morning things took a turn for the worst. What is that incessant 'drip drip dripping'? Well it turned out that the skylight's sealant was coming to the end of its days and Pip had sprung a leak! But no matter, we were going to rip the ceiling out anyway, so we will just have to make sure we re-seal it before we put it all back together.
Saturday was spent coming up with ideas for the interior and doing the most basic 'tidy up' jobs in the van. One of the previous owners liked stickers a lot! Time to whip them all off...
I was really impressed with how nicely the dash came up. You can see all the stickers on the 'before' picture below. The stickers came off easy enough with white spirit, but it was all really discoloured. Turns out that can all be fixed with a bit of 'Back to Black' and some elbow grease! Hurrah! We also managed to get that pesky cooker unit out so now we have a bit more space. Thats my Dad below. He's pretty essential to the whole makeover process because we don't know what the heck we're doing!
We have since sorted out the skylight problem and are now getting on to the good bits! Hopefully off to my parents again this weekend to start making some big changes :)
