  1. Also managed to get the inserts for the drawer cut….. it’s like thunderbird 2 - will have different foam inserts depending what we are doing.
  2. Finally got to do the extended piece. will be using it to give somewhere to sleep when camping.
  3. For anyone interested I have created an Insta for Luther - would be interested in peoples thoughts on changes made ( and fully aware lots of people will be horrified about some of the changes). https://www.instagram.com/p/CN-GPp0BBKj/?igshid=52t1z0jdwo3l
  4. Was going to add for the thread where the wood came from. As I said, I did cheat - which ended up saving a lot of time. 2 sets of oak bench slats from eBay. I went with the 120cm long but having built the back now I could just have got away with the 100cm - which also would have opened up a couple of other options on the type of wood. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12-Solid-Oak-Hardwood-Garden-Bench-Slats-1220mm-4ft-2-Seater-/313378934426?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286 Have been building the extension over the weekend to fit when seats folded forward - photos to follow if people are interested.
  5. No problem Filbee, we are all here to learn and understand- and if the answer helps save some ones life then all the better.
  6. Mike, just cargo tie down rails. managed to find some with flat sides - which fitted better with the wood. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Airline-Van-Trailer-Pick-up-Motorcycle-Load-Securing-Rail-Square-100-cm-Long-/333901286298?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286 im sure could have found them slightly cheaper but service was good from these guys.
  7. Thanks for the response and completely agree. If this was for seats it would be more important. Think I will have to make sure that if I sell then the person buying will need to know that fact.
  8. I was going to varnish - but maybe you are right, oil might be the best option. Would also mean that a quick sand and re oil would bring in back to life. the cargo tracks have 14 screws into the board underneath. Do you think I need to go further ? I could actually take bolts through the floor.
  9. Some further work. all the wood cut, cargo rails installed. Just need to stick and screw. (I am also going to make an insert for when the seats are folded forward.
  10. Will do. I have cheated a little. Found some diy oak benches on ebay. Means I don’t have to shape the wood much.
  11. So, this weekend I made a start on the wooden load area.
  12. I think multiple levels of coated wood would be worthwhile. I was contemplating using some vapour barrier of some kind - but in some ways more worried about water coming up and under. the othe4 question is how to anchor it in. Will bolts into the arches be enough ?
  13. Yes, exactly. I thought that the drawer under will give me a wide, flat load area. great point about using decent wood and coating it.
