    Having done the bedroom and toilet it only left the lounge to finish the project.
    Link to bedroom
    This is how the original looked with a crappy piece of wood inlaid between habitation and cab floor, this always gave underfoot due to lack of support.

    So the first job was to strip this out completely and add a batten to support the infill.

    Here with batten fitted

    Then with infill securely refitted I lined the rest of the floor with 3.6mm ply which made everything the same level.

    I then took a considerable amount of time making a template from old wallpaper to mark out the new carpet exactly.
    Here fitted with trim on step edge and between lounge and cab.

    I had to take 8mm off the bottom of the plastic pillar trims

    Thanks. Now I just need a new cab carpet making for left hand drive. Even the original is a rubbish fit.

    Oh great one we are not worthy.....

    Andy you are putting my Dunelm £3 rug to shame.

    Another brilliant job, well done, you talented chap.
    And thanks for posting, the vicarious pleasure I get just about outweighs my sense of worthlessness!
