    Oh now, c'mon Geo - spill the beans...


    Has Sooty had an upgrade or has the RV shrunk in the wash?


    (Sorry, couldn't resist - my bad :Sad:)

    Another top tip from me Geo.Instead of matching the wood,paint the whole interior Dayglo orange or pink,you don't have to worry about matching wood colours or anything.Plus the fact it will look nice and bright. If i can be of anymore help don't hesitate to ask.:Rofl1::Rofl1:Another top tip from Martyn:thumb:

    Hi Geo, it looks like White Ash, see here: Ash - Kronospan

    Unfortunately they change the colours more often than you change your underpants, so you will be lucky to get a perfect match.

    Yes, don't forget the varnish, that wood chip can get a bit soggy in the rain.

    You could always use Fablon instead of course :Laughing:
