Looks nice, and looks like you've gotten off to a good start. It looks like this is an addition to a shiney AS you already have.
Best of luck!

Hoi Denise!
A large work is still ahead , congratulations to the start ! In my Cruiser now I make the central heating and gas installation . All thought to do that at the beginning , but I have during the expansion changed so much that nothing more would fit . Looking forward to see more photos!
Greetings from Switzerland - Werner
