Alright, I've got a new camera and I'm able to take some reasonably decent photos of the new overhead shelf the girl and I finished off a few days ago.
I'm happy with the finish work. We've continued the exposed black handle theme and I hope it plays through the rest of the build nicely. The carpet is recycled bottles, by the way.
So those back handles are fairly strong. She tried to hang completely off of them:
While I'm showing off the rear, here's the popout window we installed a bit longer ago:
We came into a bunch of super wide elastic at the shop. No idea where this stuff came from, but we decided to put some on the shelf. We think this will end up being handy if it doesn't stretch out too bad:
And, finally... The lights on the rear shelf are all installed and mostly wired now. I put a blue light on the shelf and those two white lights are adjustable and have switches on them:
The blue lights will be all through the van and on the same relay. There will be a master switch to turn them on and they'll also come on when the dome lights come on. The wiring takes time, but the end result is very satisfying.
The rear of the van now has a really "finished" feeling to it... the center of the van has barely begun!
