Nostalgic on wheels

Once in a lifetime you do a job just for the fun of it.  My beloved bought this 1965 Commer Camper van recently and we decided to renovate the outside and then try to keep the interior as is but add a fresh overlay.  What you see is all the original interior wood cladding with fresh upholstery and a few smalls to make it pretty.  She is not just a show piece but in full use for camping weekends.  She is also earning her keep with a TV commercial here and there.  The West Coast locals call her Fugly – you work that out.  For me – my most interesting décor installation.  If you wonder why Paarl 314 – that is Jannie’s lucky number and on all his vehicles for his love for mathematics.

I start with a “before” picture.
