As this wall will be solid, took the opportunity to let a little light in :)

With a bit of luck (and my tendency not to throw things away - its NOT hoarding!!! :hmmm:) have managed to put together a full set of ironmongery for one side of the van :)



The bolt has a bit of a bow on it, but the woodtink knows a fellah who can take care of that & hopefully manufacture a couple of "Tee's" for the bottom of the door too

I initially didn't recognise the staple, such was its "as-found" condition





Just need to scour the WWW & countryside to find a set for the other side!

Looks like its going to be very secure.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Yes, and a very good think, too. I'd also add at least one a motion-triggered electric light and a video camera linked to the Internet.

Looking very good. :thumbsup:
Is the coarse sheep mix good as a rust remover? ???

Time to do something with the other side that will be the way in



Also got the other end fully prepared for painting, rubbed back with the grinder & rust barrier applied
