Give me about another week. I should have the roof rack and awning on and enough other stuff buttoned up so I can back it out of the shop and get a picture of the whole van.

Start referring to Ingot Silver as "gray" and she'll change her mind about the color
Nice try...she's a color guru (Pantone) so that won't fly... and her car is silver too...

Really looking forward to exterior outside photos.

Threw a little cabinet together to hold the inverter, light switches for cabin and exterior, solar controller, and the ARB compressor.

I will build an access door on this side and this is where the compressor will be mounted.

Built a little console to hold the fuel gauge and the controller for the Webasto water heater.

More plumbing and electrical today. the water heater loop is ready for glycol.

Electrical is pretty much done except to trim out the plugs and outlets. Still have to do a little clean up on the wires. Converter is fired up and charging the batteries.

Got the Cherry Wood panel installed next to the boxes and hooked up the ceiling lights.

Thanks for the compliments. I'm getting closer. I'm guessing 2 more weeks to finish. 38 days today.

Hey Skinny -

BEAUTIFUL work. I sure wish that I had the space and time to take on a build...

Where are you ?? I'd love to see your coach in person.
