Arrow KongBus E350 Build Thread

I'll document some of the work since purchasing on the 4th of July weekend.

Installed a Weatherguard 3063 Pack Rat Bed Drawer Unit.

Insulated the ceiling.

Installed 200w Renology solar system.

Reclaimed redwood planks on the ceiling.

Create a queen bed platform (that I intend to improve upon).

(soon i'll learn how to embed more photos into a post than just than just the 5 attachments allowed)

Next up is mood lighting and upholstering the walls.

Homemade swamp cooler. Wasn't as effective as I would have liked but kept the van at a somewhat acceptable temperature

6x9's and they fit without cutting the doors. The new door panel held them far enough off

Cool, I only ask because it looked similar to mine that are 7x10s but I definitely had to cut.

Found some Yakima racks collecting dust in the back of a bike shop... $60 for the whole setup with posts & bars!

And I got the rear & slider windows tinted to 5%
