César Aguzzoli is well on his way to becoming a Jedi Knight after converting his family’s 1992 Volkswagen Camper into an R2-D2 look-alike. The 26-year-old Brazilian, now living in San Diego, was inspired to start the project after a Star Wars marathon with his friends. Aguzzoli spent over 50 hours designing the 105ft2 (9.75m2) vinyl wrap.

“R2D2’s body is a cylinder, so our initial idea was to unroll the cylinder and wrap the bus with that pattern. But it ended up not becoming one with the force, I mean the bus…So we chose the hard way and decided to re-imagine and recreate the layout specifically to fit the van,” Aguzzoli writes on Instructables.

The project remains unfinished for now, as César Aguzzoli now lives in the United States. However, there are plans to eventually add a Millennium Falcon themed roof to the old camper.
