When you think you've seen it all

This conversion request came into us at CCC from a lovely couple called Sam and Sam, I thought I'd seen it all until I looked in their base vehicle which already had full windows and had been a disabled vehicle which is not uncommon but this 1 had been sprayed with textured rubberiser from cab to the back doors and full floor rails for obvious reasons from the previous owner, after a good chat they told me what they wanted and we agreed to turn it into their dream camper.

Now we knew this was going to take a while to strip out (10 days is what it turned into) and a load of cursing and blisters later haha we got it back to a base van after removing the contents which had been to aluminium panels riveted in, aluminium floor stuck in with windscreen sealer (never again ha). see pics.
We finally got to start on the interior which started by cutting the roof out ready for an Austops elevating roof to be installed (TUV approved and 5yr warranty) fully insulated, new ply panels, smoke grey carpet throughout, blackout curtains and screen wrap, new 12mm ply floor covered with black fleck Altro flooring, custom HAND built bespoke furniture all done in the CCC workshop in Vohringer lightweight carbon fibre effect ply and matt black worktops, table and front bed board. 

We also fitted Sargent electrical management system, heavy duty split charge relay, leisure battery, mains hook up, 110watt solar panel to roof, Waeco CRX50 fridge freezer, smev 9222 sink/hob unit, gas locker, fully M1 tested easy glide rock n roll bed with lime green diamond quilted stitching and piping, 6 x LED spot lights, LED turnstrip reading light, double 230v mains and 12v socket, extra single 230v socket and 12v on passenger side for easy use in awning.
All that's left to finish this transformed base van into their dream camper is our CCC custom built aluminium wrap around fridge front and the front seats re-upholstered to match the bed, which they are coming back for in the summer !!!
