Exterior  Roof and top half of body painted in L90D pastel white, bottom half of van painted in a colour put together by ourselves very close to savannah beige. Very minimal welding carried out during restoration, the following has been replaced: 1.Both lower rear corners below lights 2.Both outer and inner sills 3.Both front steps and arches 4.One rear arch 5.Battery tray Very little for a genuine UK rhd van. All window seals,scrapers and chrome window trims have also been replaced, along with door seals, sliding door and rear tailgate and engine lids seals. Bumpers These were purchased from (no more rusty bits) and are made of fibreglass, painted in L90D they look amazing with the added bonus of never rusting. Roof/Poptop Genuine Dormobile pop-top with new glass and seals, also replaced roof vents and seals with mechanisms. The Inside and outside of roof has been full repainted as well giving the van a much lighter feel inside. Curtains over the glass on the original silent gliss gliders and rails work perfectly. Another lovely original feature is the mirror positioned between between the two windows which when the roof is up is in the perfect position to be used. The original pop-top canvas was unfortunately full of holes and this has been replaced with a colour matching pop-top. The pop-top mechanism with springs and hold ups remain original to the van and are in perfect working order. Interior  Original head lining replaced with light weight plywood sanded and stained with a white wash, added LED lighting working in three separate zones throughout the van. Original Dormobile shelf fitted above the sink a very rare item to find in any Dormobile these days. In the front of the van the two front seats have been fully re-upholstered in off white vinyl with matching door cards, the sliding door card and rear tailgate card have also been done in the same vinyl. Under the passenger seat remains the original Dormobile cooker in perfect working order with the addition of gas isolators in two places. All under seat rubber mats, walkthrough mat and cab floor mat have also been replaced for new using Alan Schofield parts, which in my opinion are the very best aftermarket quality. Top of dash has been fully repainted, new steering wheel and period clock added to dash cluster. A new sub floor was added before matching wood flooring was put down to tie in with head lining, all units are original Dormobile units fully reconditioned and painted inside where required. Still retaining the original cool box, sink, wardrobe, table, bed, rear storage and not forgetting original waste paper basket. I have never seen another Dormobile with this still in place, this is not a copy it is original to the van. Both children’s bunks have been disassembled, shot blasted, powder coated and painted, reassembled using new bunk fabric and matching bunk covers. The rear bed and seat has been fully reupholstered in 70’s fabric giving it an aged feeling of that era. Both original buddy seats have also been disassembled shot blasted, powder coated and painted along with bases replaced and reupholstered in the same material as the bed. These buddy seats are also a very hard to find addition to the van. Curtains throughout the van also in a period material. Electrics Full leisure system using a piggy back battery and intelligent change over relay maintaining a 100ah leisure battery. 12v fuse board running everything whilst not using campsite hookup, with the added addition of a 600w inverter giving you 230v electric on the move. 230v fuse board with mains sockets hidden inside cupboards so not to spoil the look of the van, along with hookup point in engine bay. LED spot lighting throughout with an additional LED bar light above the sink and cool box area, also remote control colour changing LED lighting. DAB Sony stereo with Bluetooth, 2 speakers up front with an additional 2 6x9 speakers in the rear. Heating Original heat exchangers work perfectly providing enough heat to de-mist the front windscreen on a cold day, unfortunately I felt this wasn’t enough to keep me and my family warm, so for that reason I installed a 5kw diesel heater with hidden diesel tank which also works via remote control. (Toasty) I have probably missed something so please feel free to ask any questions, if you are after a Camper you will not be disappointed by this.
