Not planning on using all of the caravan interior, using water heater, shower, shower tray, cold water system, &c.

Mostly filling and painting left now on the metal work, few patches on the cab to be done at a later date.
Got some more colour on yesterday, bit patchy looking in the pics but it'll get another coat yet.

Where is good to get fibreglass supplies from?
The roof has 2 terrible car sunroofs in that leak like hell and are too heavy.
I need to remove them and fill in the holes and make a few smaller repairs.
TIA.

Started the first part of the refit by putting some insulation in.

That was a load of free kingspan from work, a load more picked up today. It's being pulled out of a house we are renovating and would be skipped otherwise so it's a Billy bonus for me. Not cheap stuff, especially at 40mm thick.
Normally 40mm is special order from the merchant.

Also got the first of the "insert choice expletive" sunroofs out.
My flabber is completely ghasted at who thought they were a good idea to fit.
Leaky, heavy and couldn't be opened for ventilation.
Goodbye.

I did other small insignificant stuff and took no pics so you'll have to believe me on that.
It's true though.

You want some old coach skylights for that - preferably with the bright orange tinted glass...

That interior shot really does show how vast this thing is.
