PostSubject: Scooby Make Over   Fri Nov 04, 2011 6:15 pm

Hey Guys
We bought Scooby with a number of "extras" already included Very Happy
However, now that we are in to the "dark days" of the year we thought we might brighten him up a little
(not really a make over but it makes a suitable title)
The challenge was to be practical, economic, but with a splash of colour
There are a number of ideas we have not pursued as yet but here is the starter for ten . . .
We have a dark looking interior that needs some colour - see below

So lets introduce some colour via a couple of fleecy throws, add some pillows, and there you have it

We may need to consider some curtains next Wink
When we have the pop top up we use the Danbury bed board for storage only - ie folded in half
We find the use of such space invalueable - chairs, table, luggage, clothes, ruck sack you name it
The bed board is however very heavy - try to lift it - so we thought we would remove it (help the mpg too)
It was replaced by a single chip board cut to size and painted - blue believe it or not Rolling Eyes
On the end we placed some foam pipe insulation to stop some of the "head banging" - we like all types of music Laughing

Now we can sleep under "blue skies" all the time - maybe some clouds or stars should be added!
These are clearly not earth shattering changes, they are very simple, but we like the improvement
What simple ideas have you guys completed to imrove your camper?
Rooby Roo Cool

PS there may be other updates through the winter/spring depending upon progress

Points duly note guys
Dont mention the glow stars!
We've already been through the star wars scenario Laughing
Surfer Scooby goes all over the place - he's hard to tie down
He has also lost his leash to the board - so if you see it let us know Rolling Eyes

The latest part of the "Make Over" took place on New Year's Day
It was not a highly organised, labour intensive or technical exercise
Scooby likes to keep things simple Laughing

The stickers were purchased at the Final Fling in October Cool
(The door strip was fitted earlier - see Downtime Jobs in General Technical Section)
We spotted this fish on another stand at the event - it just caught our fancy!

Considering curtains next - have taken all the measurements
What pattern and colour do you think?

This afternoon we re-assembled the roof rack after treating the wood and applying a lick of paint. Smile
It is far from perfect but it does brighten up the old rack Scooby arrived with.
You cannot beat a good looking rack. Wink
Just before the rain this afternoon we managed to put it back on Scooby for a pic.
Brought it back in soon after. Rolling Eyes
