Cupboards are in for respraying, so I've been getting wiring pulled in and conduiting installed to carry wiring from the front to the back for Audio, video etc. The Nav system is in and working, but I will finishe it off once I have all the peripherals installed and they work. This system supports a reversing camera, and inputs from other cameras, which I'll possibly add a hidden external Camera for security purposes.

I also saw a bargain on Gumtree, a set of nice Holdfast Kombi Roofracks for next to nothing. I couldn't turn thgis chance down, and managed to collect them from the old gent who had sold his Bus. Fitted them yesterday, perfect, and with the raised legs putting the crossbars above the Devon roof, this will allow me to carry kneeboards ontop with no problems. Once we reach campsite, remove boards, and pop up the roof. Sorted.

For those wondering about the bed system in this bus, it doesn't have that fancy "Rock and Roll" mechanism which costs a fortune. It's a simple but clever design of hinging the rear back and the base as one unit. To fold out, simple, un-latch the rear upright position, and simply fold the bed out. The temp leg support will be replaced in time.

Should get the new cushions in the next few days, which will then complete the rear. I need to glue in some white hardboard panels to act as the back and bottom of the cupboards on the left hand side, and hopefully will get the cupboards back from spray-painting in the next week. Then they can get installed, and the DB and wiring can go in.
