OK things are now desperate. My absence from these parts can be explained if not forgiven.
May came and went and we spent a good deal of the months in the wilds of Central Australia, well away from the world and thoughts of progressing further.
Then one of us got this bright idea that we should buy a van, and the other of us should immediately convert it to a camper so that we can accompany one of our offspring and her family on a 6,000 k road trip. Four weeks should be heaps to convert a delivery van into a capable camper she said, shouldn’t it?
The one charged with actually doing this work, had hoped to have a CNC machine to do the heavy lifting, but now it looks as though another Christmas will come and go and @vicious1 's package and all the other bits (I think the kit is now complete - even the parts for the table are waiting for assembly) and I still won’t have my Lowrider - or will I?
Anyway, here’s progress on the van - three and a bit weeks in. We’ll rebuild it properly and line it when we get back in mid August. FWIW there are 150 holes in the bed platform alone, and while my heart would really like to have had a machine to do that, there is something terribly therapeutic about mindlessly wielding a big holesaw for an hour or so.
Cheers, and hope to bring progress news on the “real” project next time!
