Lexel by sashco and sheet metal screws with the heads trimmed. My house is nice as well and we all use it me, the wife, the toddlers and dogs… but seriously I spent time on sailboat interiors and have brought over a lot of what I have learned. Everything is much more durable than it looks.

Seems like everything is working okay thus far. The alpicool t60 running and the maxxfan set at 78 degree auto doesnt seem to drain the batteries at all. Like I said I have 1 renogy 100w panel on the roof tomorrow I will put the fridge on a max duty cycle with the lights, fan, and heater fan on full blast and see how drained the batteries are at the end of the day.

Well the roof hatch gave up the ghost so I had to make a temporary replacement which took up most of my day today and some of yesterday. Breaks my heart that it is temporary because it sure came out nice. Before I finished I took some more pictures. Next I need to continue finishing and filling screw holes. Need to tint windows and figure out curtains, need to re upholster driver seat, foam all the holes in the floor, paint with rust reformer and then undercoat. The rear end is an open diff so I am thinking about an E-Locker. Also looking for a winch bumper.
