Looks absolutely stunning.
Well done @ryan_flea you should be really proud of yourselves.
Now we have a two bed apartment coming up. If you aren't too busy nip over and throw some paint and fabric around.

Bit late now for the OP I know, but...…

For anyone contemplating a similar project, Bedec MSP is an excellent paint - water based and easy to use - and is designed to go on a very wide variety of surfaces - MSP stands for Multi Surface Paint. Available online (https://www.promain.co.uk/multi-surface-paint-msp-1173.html)or through some decorator's merchants. Like any paint finish though, not durable enough for table tops / worktops.

What a fantastic job, we have been putting off doing exactly the same kind of refresh on our 20 year old Roadstar for the past couple of years but when we see the results of all your hard work it makes us realise that we really do need to bite the bullet and make a start, just need to wait for the management to decide on colours :).

That’s a fantastic job, well done! When I saw the first pic, I thought “whyever did they go for that colour?” - glad I scrolled to the end!

Go for it, why not. Like you say bite the bullet and give it a go. Best of luck

Well- It's been a while, but managed to save some pennies to attempt to get a fair bit of welding to be completed.....Just the dreaded "leave it with me, and we will work out a quote" However, pleased that its now in and awaiting a venture out in the van in approx 4 weeks (everything crossed). I have it at the garage too so any tinkering has stopped and I am in need of another project!

Absolutely fantastic work Guys and it looks fabulous.

There is a paint called Frenchic which is brilliant for these kind of make overs. Their Alfresco range is even suitable for painting the outside of your van...
