Trying to camperize my Fiat Scudo (second try)

Hey everyone

Last year I kinda camperize my van on a gipsy style and was not that comfortable.
Using bad wood and an inflatable mattress is not the best option.
Speaking with friends I found that the best wood is the plywood made by populus.
I found a wood warehouse which sells it for a good price (124cmx90cm), 15€.
It has a small water stain, but due that I want to paint and varnish it, it doesn´t really matter.
Actually this van it’ll be just for few months till I’ll get a bigger one, so I don’t wanna invest a lot of money.
First of all, I removed the back seats and measure it carefully. Then I design all the furniture modules.
The worst part was the table, so I had to make a bloody engineering work.
Also got stock cutting the plywood, all the cuts have to be damn straight. With a normal circular saw it’s kinda impossible, so I took a look on Amazon and found a circular saw track.
With it all the cuts are so straight and precise.
Other tools like, self centering jig, router bits, push button lock and so, are from AlieExpress hahahahaha.
Still have to assemble the last two modules, I think tomorrow will be all done. Then next step for the furniture is to sand, paint and varnish.
Next thing is to remove all panels and insulate the entire van.
Also have to think on an interior side surf rack.
These days I might purchase the foam for the bed. 6cm high density and 4cm memory foam. I found a very good deal on a Spanish website, 190cmx130cm cut in 5 pieces for 150€.
In the In the meantime, I also rehydrate all the plastics and remove weird stains.

You certainly put a lot of thought into it. 

And a lot of work too.  Will the units transfer into the bigger van?

No, I'll just sell it like it is. Here in Spain people are getting crazy about campers and vans.

The next one has to be high/big enough coz my gfr wants a shower hahaha. Actually after a surf session in the north of Spain a hot shower is the best thing u can have.

Today I finish all modules. Tomorrow I'll install them to see how it looks.
