Large update, i moved house! Finally got my own place, so have been busy trying to get it upto a liveable standard. In the mean time, the van took a bit of a back bench. I did manage to sort the sound deadening out, and now there is a thick application of closed cell foam!

Cut up the choke/heater panel to make a simple one and fitted the Minispares heater unit!

I like the seats, did you buy them done or have them retrimmed?

Also is it just coincidence that the neighbour also opposite also has a mini? 😏

Seats were retrimmed by JCS Custom Trim 👌🏽

As Globule already mentioned, those seats are absolutely lush!
