I'm going to be keeping a couple of the factory heaters, but not the two front ones. They are huge and inefficient size-wise, so I am going to eventually replace them with an aftermarket unit that is about 1/4 the size of the driver's side heater. I'm using one of the front ones, the passenger side one for now, but it is going to come out to make foot room in front of the soon-to-be-installed passenger seat.
The space that was used for the driver's side heater, I've used for my new subwoofer enclosure. This is just a temporary enclosure to give me some decent sound until I get around to glassing up the one that will be permanent. When I make the new permanent enclosure, the switch console will be built into it, but will take up just a small space near the front diagonally. Behind that will be 2 power point for the phone and GPS power. There will also be a cupholder and a small tray for little stuff that I want to keep at hand but not sliding around.
This is the temp sub enclosure I have been building. I don't have a picture of it installed since it is dark outside now that I've finished putting it in. I'll get a picture in the light maybe tomorrow. I know that plywood is not a good material for a sub box because of it's density, but it works for now until I can get the good one built. I just want to have some tunes in the bus while I'm using it for other stuff until the interior construction starts. It's very likely that I'm going to be moving back to Missouri to do the construction since one of my sisters owns a small acreage out in the country and said that I can do my building there. Having a decent sounding stereo system will make the 1600 mile trip actually enjoyable!
Paint is still wet here.
Gasket made from foam camper shell tape. I've been using this for years and it works great! If you look closely, you can see the clear silicone around all the seams inside.
This is how it sits in the bus. The switch console shown in the last picture sits on top of the sub box.
This is the switch console next to the driver's seat after having taken the heater out that was under it. I have also taken out the white metal panel behind the the console. The new sub box covers the entire area that the metal panel covered.
