Not everyone's cup of tea, but I think it turned out quite COOL !

"Surf's up dude" well this is unmistakably one to get the VW aficionados talking, all the customers own choice, and as usual at CCC great customers they turned out to be. We enjoyed doing this van, as you can probably tell the Metcalf's passion is anything to do with watersports and the sea, this cool T4 has a full metal-flake vinyl wrap on the outside. On the inside, they wanted to carry on the beach theme, so we stripped it back to the bare bones and started from scratch with full sound kill-insulation (floor and walls), new ply for the sides and 12mm ply for the floor which we then covered in blue fleck Altro safety flooring.

Sand carpet for the walls (not roof panels as it's coming back in Autumn for an Austops elevating roof) new deep side step and long back step, fully M1 tested full-width rock 'n' roll Oz developments bed with smooth glide on heavy duty runners. Outside hook up, many 230v volt sockets throughout and twin USB phone sockets and regular 12v sockets for the cold beer by the beach cool box plugin.  75amp leisure battery, heavy duty split charge - relay system, Sargent electrical system 6 x LED spots, turn strip LED reading light, folding table, front and back bed boards all in Matt blue lightweight ply. We fitted sliding table rail and to finish, it all off brand new blue and white upholstery throughout, with tuck and roll effect quilting and white piping to give it beach hut by the sea feel !!!
