Re: The Dirtybus...

The guys at Ace hooked me up with the rack in front of the sink... This is what they use on their shelving to keep the product from falling off... gonna cut up some diamond plate to weld behind it, then I think it's ready to get cleaned up for paint...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Raping some tool boxes for their hidden treasure...






Had to rework the microwave cubby so the doors would fit without notching...






Started bending up some drawers for either side of the stove... The boxes are being made from the old interior skins from the bus... They'll get an aluminum face like the cabinet doors...






Stole some drawer sliders from a vanity that I got for free, the vanity ended up being to big for the bathroom I'm re-doing...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Got the box for the drawer done and installed on the right of the stove... Now working on the left drawer... I cut out the diamond plate just to the left of the stove and turning it into a drawer... The diamond plate under the sink with the rack will stay...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Got the fronts on the two drawers... Turned out pretty decent... Later on I may find some small aluminum angle to wrap the fronts with... Gonna try and get the upper cabinets skinned today, then all they will need is paint and installed...

Sweet! Gotta love that Diamond Plate look. That's a regular Rollin' Man Cave you got going there!

Re: The Dirtybus...

I cut the hole in the floor for the shitter, then started cutting up the waste tank... I need to use the short wide one, the other won't fit unless I move the battery box and that ain't happening... The tanks are made out of a cream colored plastic with little black speckles...














Also finished up fitting the fresh tank under the galley and installed some lighting...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Got the black tank in place... Still have to finish the mount... Also have to get an extension to attach the toilet flange(to short)...




Started mocking up a wire rack under the stove I got from Zoediak... Thanks Dusty...




Messed around with the framing for the fridge and got the vent installed...












Started framing in the laptop station... The storage for the shore power cord goes under it as well as the fuse/breaker box...

Wow. Making your own sofa/bed from scratch! I'm impressed.
