The first new timber has also gone in – the gap in the floor has now been filled with new planks, all drilled and bolted into place. Topcoating will continue to finish the body metalwork, then the next job is to build a stud partition wall across the van for its storage role, which will also help brace a weak point in the bodywork which requires strengthening before we go near the roof.
