Retrofitting while being protected from wind, rain and cold

To continue retrofitting my two vans during the winter without having to rent a workspace, I built myself a heated tent under my lean-to roof. It protects from wind, rain and the cold. An infrared heater keeps the upper body warm. In a pinch, I can also use a three-phase AC fan heater. At minus 5 degrees I could keep the inside temperature at + 7 °C. That is enough to work comfortably without freezing hands.
I used different magnets to attach the strong and correctly fitting plastic sheets from GeKaHo.de to the steel structure. Especially the rubber-coated magnets are perfect for use on all sheet metal surfaces on the inside and outside of the van as well as in the workshop. Thanks to the magnets, if necessary, the plastic sheet tent can be dismantled with ease and also just as easily be put up again.
