Now onto the build portion.
I have until December 23rd to have the van prepared for a week long trip to Utah between Christmas and New years (Any recommendations?!?!)
So tonight I am tearing out the existing interior, sans wood floor
- Install industrial dot flooring. I will have a piece 10'x8' left over if anyone wants to buy it.
- Install D2. Fuel pickup and pump already installed when I had my new 43 gallon tank installed. Now to install the heater. According to the install instructions, It is better to install it to a flat surface, which obviously makes sense:
So my problem is if i install it ontop of my wood sub floor, I do not have a good seal to the underside of the van and would need to seal it off somehow. I have no problem removing the wood subfloor, but most of the back of the van is not flat to get a flush mount. Behind the driver could possibly work, but there is not clearance under the van right there to run the needed tubing/ducting. Any ideas? I forget where the flat spots are in the back. I remember behind the rear wheel wells, but I feel like the hoses would get crazy dirty back there.
- 52" Duchess sofa on order, to be picked up hopefully next week
- 80/20 interior
- Use speakerbox carpet where possible
Still figuring out my order of operations for sound proofing and insulation. Id does not need to be perfect as it really just comes down to how much the D2 will need to run, but want the overall look to be simple, utilitarian and clean.
