    We've seen first hand some of Mr Finney's work, the Citroen camper we completed 18 months or so ago was started by him and it was a catalogue of errors when it came to us. It was so bad I had to rip out 3/4 of what he'd done and start again.

    In this case, I think the word 'Businessman' is a very poor choice of word.
    In my book a Businessman is in this world to make an honest crust by trading in a legal manner.
    This man was out to take peoples hard earned money by shoddy workmanship to the point of danger to the people he did 'Business' with.

    The storage spaces inside the rear doors and the wardrobe inside were about all that didn't get redone. He built the lounge on a raised floor section using decking timbers to frame the raised floor section. He put the fridge in the wrong position and hacked half of the vertical sidewall joint stiffening away to accomodate it. He put new 12mm plywood floor straight on top of original ply lining floor which was rotten in places and when I lifted that floor the steel floor was badly dented and covered in a 1/2 inch layer of what appeared to be congealed animal fat, it was not good or nice.

    If there's going to imprison dodgy dealers we better build some more prisons.
