STEP 4 BASIS
It is important to start with a good foundation. First, remove everything from your van that you don’t need. This can take two seconds or it can be quite time consuming. This all depends on which van you bought. With a new van you start with a clean slate, but with a used and older van you may have to do some work first. For example, some vans already have a specially made floor or walls. This can be useful if you want to use it again, but can also be stressful as it can take some time to remove.
After you’ve removed everything, it’s time to start making a good foundation for your van, so it can last for years to come. Try to remove all rust and use some ‘water protection oil’ or ‘rust spray’ to protect your van. Fill all the (screw) holes you have and then sand them. Finally, it is important to clean all surfaces.
