Platform bed build questions -E350
Hello. I have searched and searched these forums and the internet, but having trouble getting some answers for my platform bed build. I have purchased a 2004 E-350 extended with all the windows and want to build a platform bed from side to side in the back, as my wife and I are both under 5'9".
I've decided to use plusnuts to hold pieces of 2x4 angle iron to the sides of the van for support. I've taken all the factory panels off and am down to the bare metal. However, I am unsure whether I can put plusnets anywhere on the metal, or if there are "ribs" or some sort of supports I should drill into. After looking at the van for hours, I don't really see anything that seems like it would be a support.
So my question is can I put plusnuts anywhere on the interior? I want this to be very secure in the event of a wreck and don't want the bed to come flying forward and decapitating me or my wife.
Thanks so much!
