Morning spent fitting the roof lining to the newly acquired van headlining frame, courtesy of the very helpful M Machine

Still to be steamed to tighten it up slightly but overall I'm happy with the outcome

Hahah, I started off thinking I would just get on with it to get it finished however I lost the enjoyment in it so took a break and now back into it again, this time I am just doing a few hours here and there.
