Great progress. The cabinets look great. Where did you get the hinges and struts for the door galley?

Just read your whole thread. Man I'm sooo envious of all your fab skills!

You mention CLC tiles for sound deadening. Do you have a link or more info?

Thanks,
Robert

And any more details on your shower setup?

Where did you get the hinges and restraints for the drop down door on your sink?

I bought them from sounddeadner.com which appears to have gone out of business. Essentially they are a sound deadening mat like dynamat, fat mat, roadkill, etc... placed in pieces to cover ~25% of each panel. I ran out towards the end and finished using G-mat.

The shower is pretty basic. I have a flat plate heat exchanger for hot water using hot engine coolant. The shower mixer valve is just inside the side doors and the shower hose nozzle is a standard kitchen sink sprayer. It used to come out of a small door just inside the side doors. The sprayer is now coiled up in the back of the galley cabinet. The same line coming from the mixer valve 'T's in the galley cabinet to supply both the sink and shower sprayer. Allowing hot and cold water to both. The tempering valve in the back after the heat exchanger actually works pretty good and I probably could have simplified things and not used the mixer valve. This would of allowed just one water line that would be cold unless the engine was running and the bypass valve was open, then it would automatically mix the water to the set temp.
At this point we just use it outside when privacy and temps allow. I used in the White mountains one night when temps were in the low 30's. We may get privacy enclosure at some point.
We have a small mortar mixing pan that we place in the van for quick wash offs. Still working on a simple curtain solution for inside. The pan fits tightly under the back seat and most of the time is where all our shoes end up. It kind of works like a drawer pulled out to the front.

Thanks. I should have finished your thread before I posted my question! I really enjoyed reading and seeing what you have done to your van. I have a 2001 Express that I am working on.
