It will be a slow start as I'm heading out to Flagstaff for Expo in a couple weeks and need to get ready with the patrol and M101. I couldn't resist getting started though and got the gutting going
This is what I started with, nice and clean!
It might be tempting to use the cabinets as is, although they are very nice they just don't work with what I have in mind for the interior. I have to say though, these units are way overbuilt. The cabinets aren't made of typical plywood but instead with seaboard. At about $14/sqft I'll recycle as much of the material as possible!
Doesn't look like much but there were so many screws to take out I thought they were just screwing with me, took me longer than expected! I was glad to find out all the walls and ceiling are insulated with fiberglass faced with foil. Makes it way easier to deal with than the spray foam.
And hard to believe this thing could fit in the back! So this will be broken down and recycled into new cabinets when possible.
And what's the deal anyway with the E350 headlights shape? I've seen a few of the same year as mine that don't have that plastic surround but a larger headlight instead? You guys can enlighten me?
