Update time... and then I'll address the PEX VS FLEX BATTLE ROYAL
These are the cabinets that will go over the wheel well.
Corner detail. My wife put a nice strip of wood to cover the plywood edges, reinforced the corners.
See, I do work too! Made a wooden 1/4 plywood cover for the breaker box. The metal cover was too big to fit in the space we needed. I'm still not sure if this is a terrible idea, or a really terrible idea putting wood in front of power. Hmm.
Flooring almost done. Just need to do the driver's area and the toilet area. They get something special (thick).
Trying to figure out what to do with the back door floor gap. Possible angle to a piece of flat bar screwed and caulked down. Then just a small rubber strip to keep the water out.
We're thinking of just strapping the doors shut semi-permanently. We're going to check with some of the food truck makers in the area since a lot of step vans are becoming food trucks and there should be a lot of windows and hardware from that.
Sampler of they grey stain for the floor. The putty came out looking weird, so we have to hit it with something other than poly. Looks kind of cool and will hide dirt well, I think.
Okay so Pex or no pex. What I'm seeing is that flex can fail under pressure. I have a pressure regulator that keeps me under 50 PSI, so I'm hoping to not have the issue of swelling that Glenn had. I think we'll try flex for now because it's a little cheaper and esier, but keep a watchful eye on it. Everything is very accessible for water, so it shouldn't be an issue to replace if we have to. I'm going to use 1/2" screw connectors hose clamped for all of my tubing, so hopefully that'll help with a nice, tight connection. Right now we're just looking at fresh water in from a city source through a T-connector, and to a sink and the toilet. It's all inside, so the freezing aspect of PEX doesn't really matter so much.
Thanks so much for the input so far! We're getting close, just need to score some sweet front seats and we'll be complete for equipment! Also still looking for ABS - anybody got about 6" of 3" diameter sitting around I can buy off of them?
