    Default jay_'s T5 conversion blog!

    Hi all

    After the previous "advice" thread I'm now converting the T5!

    You can follow my progress at:

    http://www.surfshare.co.uk/category/blog/

    So far I've insulated, put the floor in and carpeted. Next up is the bed and storage.

    The blog is being ran on my new (beta) website which is aimed at getting more windsurfers to share lifts to the beach.

    Hope you enjoy.

    Nicely done!ĘGood work with lining, are you going to install rock'n'roll bed or a fixed higher positioned bed with massive storage space?

    Cheers!

    I'll be fitting a fixed bed with loads of underneath storage.

    Making the frame out of wood this weekend and then there will be a ply top go on, which will also be carpeted.

    I'm going to make a cutaway by the door so you can still step in and sit down if necessary...

    Good work and good choice of bed height, because it still allows you to have space to maneuver during sexy time
