That interior sheet metal looks pretty mint (after you cleaned everything)........

Thanks. It should at only 23K. The only thing keeping it from really looking clean is the factory SMB spray glue residue, which is everywhere. Oh, I patched all of those holes too. I will not be reusing that drop-in style of table flange, and the 2 big holes on the right were for battery drains, since relocated. I should've taken a pic of the patched floor but forgot. I was pleasantly surprised to not find any rust around all of those holes in the floor. SMB does not take the time to treat or paint em, just drill baby drill and move on.

Wow, reverse engineering! Nice to see one torn apart. Looking really good.

Re: Look what just drove up in my driveway, it's Rusty!

Any clue to where the mice came in? Seems on my van they come in somewhere from the rear and travel in the walls. Wish I could find out exactly what to plug up.
BTW I like what you're doing. Looking good so far.

Thanks Dave. I have no idea where they came in. There is no evidence. No holes, but of course it's possible they got in through battery or plumbing holes. The nests I found were up high, behind the long pieces of trim above the windows (where bullet and fluorescent lights are). I do know that windows were left open on this van for some time when it was stored. I guess they could get in that way.

Re: Look what just drove up in my driveway, it's Rusty!

Update: Finally got one cabinet built. This is really the most complex one. It's back apart for stain now, but it will be in permanent with doors by next week. My shop is littered with about 40 panels at varying points of sanding, staining and drying. It smells awesome in there!



With the face on it, after many hours of getting this piece right with a router





There will be a big open cubby on the top of this cabinet and the one across from it



It's pretty apparent that my saw needs a blade and is burning the wood in places, but that will all be covered with T-molding so I'm not too worried about it.

More to come

So how much will you be asking for it when you sell it in a couple of months?
