Well its now a seven year old base vehicle!!! So what would it be worth when completed???

If you then factor in the hundreds of hours it will take an amateur to complete all of the work I very much doubt it would work out as economic. Especially as its almost certain you would fit one item and then find out many hours later that it (and everything fitted after it) needs to be removed in order fit something else.

FAR too much work for me (and I'm an ex mechanic so have a bit of knowledge)

Andy

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

It's a process Andy, and you leave access panels for later problems as do the converters, ours was 2007 van too, and you just work your way through it all the time think what is to come after, your ex-mechanic learning isn't actually much help believe it or not, more useful is domestic DIY skills, and joinery, joinery being the more difficult for most folk, and not one you can affordable hire in like a sparky or Gas safe bod for a day or so.

Assemble it all with flat pack fasteners so you can undo, to redo bits?

Err no, the job needs to be done properly or you arrive with it all unpacked again.
