JWA I definitely agree, thank you for your input!

Mothgils thank you for your comment, I will
be sure to reach out if the local water I’ve contacted doesn’t pan out! I’m going to price out each material option. In my opinion each having their pros/cons, finding a good middle ground between those pros/cons and price is where I need to start. There is a water jet cutter near where I live that I’ve contacted. I submitted my very first design to them but have since redesigned it somewhat and I need to resubmit my design to them and obtain a quote.

Another possible metal cutter would be CutSendCut.com----they have an online drawing utility that's kinda slick.

Naturally its better having a local outfit you can talk with directly, often times they can help simply your product to reduce your costs of production while maintaining the quality level you wish to have.

Really hoping this turns into something you'll enjoy doing and makes a few side bux too.

Twoxentrix, do you know what/how you are mounting your panel to make it easily removable? I was thinking I would mount mine with spacers to allow removal of any items that were strap/tied to it but I really like your idea to have the panel easily removable

Steve Hunt, I did not think of a fold down shelf/mini table but I really like your idea especially a place to fill the water bladder! Im expecting to have multiple changes/versions by the time Im done so I definitely will attempt to incorporate a fold down table/shelf
Finally took delivery of my van a few weeks ago so I've been crawling all over it, in it and under it. The frame-work space behind the Aluminess box is exactly 2" deep from the edge of the frame-work to the box itself. This would be another great place to mount a bigger fold down shelf/mini table. In fact I'd buy one for here first if you were selling both. I'd prefer to drill into the back of the sheet metal box rather than the frame to mount it.

I think that some people mount a Rotopax fuel can in that spot. Either way, its space just waiting to be used.

So it would essentially work like the door on the box does. Using both of them would be quite a bit of table space especially without actually lugging a table around.

Took a while to get the fab pieces back from the welder, and then my procrastination - but finally got around to installing the Mole Board. Did change-up my initial plan a bit.
Have two 1/2" tall hooks at the top (just above the storage door), and the 1" tall x 14" long tray at the bottom - slides in and out very easily. All four PowerTanks hooked into the mole board along with two small pouches below...works great.
