Nick has been working hard all weekend so we could get the roof back on this weekend, and get the van waterproof. Progress was slow on Saturday (not helped by the fact that I swanned off to Southampton for a spot of socializing) but on Sunday things went much more smoothly and the roof is on.
The new lining for the roof is the same material as we are using for the interior panels. It's a pale blue van lining material and sticks on with spray adhesive. It is such a good feeling to see new stuff going in, rather than just taking old stuff out.
The finished lining looks amazing! What an improvement.
Now here's the part I was looking forward to... new roof bellows! This came from proudtopop.co.uk, and comes in many colours and patterns, and is available for all the common conversions (ours is a Devon). Of course I had to go for rainbow stripe!
It was a bit of a mystery deciding which way up it went, but we figured it out eventually.
Before all four sides are screwed down, the supporting rods are put back in.
And all done! Just need to carefully put it back on now...
Unrelated : the obligatory Hawaiian flowers...
Carefully back on with the roof....
I love the rainbow stripe with the yellow, very bright and cheerful.
Nick then put the skylight back in properly. It looks great, Nick has done a really good job.
Next job is to put the gas struts back, and the roof is finished, and we can start working inside. I can't wait!
