    Looking for input on interior.
    Want to retain a retro look

    Should I keep the existing wood paneling or replace it?

    Or should I take panneling off and wrap some of it with some kind of material. I figure the panelng is all cut to fit already so can use the panel peices as the templates for material/fabric...Diamond tuft. lol!

    I plan to redo the floor as well. Will probably go with Vinyl Plank Flooring as it is flexible and pliable to work with.

    I will also have bench cushions/covers made up, as well as curtains and matress.

    Not sure if I should repaint the sink/stove cabinet/bench seat boxes/table or wrap it in material as well. Guy could do a lot with vinyl wrap and a heat gun. Idea

    For mine I had to remove all paneling, and carpet off the roof. The interior was done in late 70's and the roof had a serious dandruff problem every time you touched it...lol. That's all there was for my interior. Yours looks like it could be a fare bit of work to remove all cupboards and such. I think if it were me I would repaint what I could and rub a little lemon oil or linseed oil on the panels to freshen them up and enjoy it from there. Also go around with a screw driver and tighten all screws and such that hold all wood items together as well.
