So,

what's the plan for the interior then? complete removal or just partial?

how much are you going to change it?

make sure that you seal up that hole in the floor from the sink waste pipe...

You got most right (see above), although the spot lamp cover goes with the spot lamp...

As for the headlights.. I've got a repair panel on the front of my bus which has late bay headlamp bowls.. I already have the single screw rings as a result of this..

Careful now!!!

First it's the late front panel, then it's the seat runners..... Next you'll be adding a brake servo, high indicators and paying road tax lol!

Sounds good to me!

Just what I'd do Wink

Are you going to keep the headlining and panels? I just recovered mine, but need to work out a new rear overhead replacement locker to cover the gap.

I'd like to take credit for the following work, but I won't! The seats were fitted by Mark and his Dad at the Howling Wolf Speedshop, and the canvas was fitted by 'faux' from the EarlyBay.com forum.
