[Renovation Thread] Fhati 600-1961

Hello guys,
After opening this thread:
Any ideas which fiberglass caravan is this?

I have completed the purchase of this Caravan,
And this will be my renovation thread, where i'm going to post updates, and ask questions and ask for tips.
So to get started these are some photos of it now:















If anyone has any tips, ill be glad to hear about them,
Jonathan.

P.s
I still am not 100% sure that this one is the Fahti or is it an later BIOD (like the extase 1971, so if someone knows how they differ, please let me know)

My question is, where would you get replacement windows?

Looks like the door is laying inside, and that's a very good thing.

Jonathan, how are you planning to finish the inside walls? Since you're in Israel, do you have local access to RV parts or will you need items shipped to you internationally?

Cool beans, don't know what it really is either... but it's NEATO!

It looks like some of the windows are inside too! Looking forward to watching this one be restored.
Sorry I can't help you with any information Jonathan.

As Roy said the windows are inside, and except of one, they are all oke, only one is cracked.
There are some parts i can buy around here for the caravan but things like the rubbers or external parts i'll need to find in Germany\Holland.
About the inside walls, there are some ideas, one is using a thin wooden plank that can curve itself, we will see about that.
