    Looks sooooooo sweet! From floor, to galley design to seat hardware!
    I'm also curious about the floor material. Looks great.
    Did you also insulate the sides of the dog house, or under it?
    I'm lovin this build... One of my favorites on ExPo. I love seeing masters fabricate what they're imagining!

    Default Washers

    Not sure if this is what MG used for the washer some of you guys are asking about, but this is very similar: http://www.mcmaster.com/#92538a340/=z01smw
    Little spendy in stainless from mcmaster, but wouldn't be too hard to make.

    Thanks everyone for the comments!


    The combination of fasteners I used on the step molding are:

    McMaster.com - 92538A330, 90585A237, 95105A119

    The washers aren't cheap. I don't have time to make stuff like that though.

    My dad went a little Dynamat crazy on the doors today...



    Meanwhile, Cam (the van's owner) is in town to check on progress and lend a hand. He worked on fitting the factory headliner to the penthouse top...it just works a lot better with our interior plans this way.



    We fit the factory dome lights into the sides for a factory look.

    Oh heck yeah those factory dome lights work very well there.
    Looks so much cleaner without the tacky SMB-granny-headliner.

    I predict those domes lights will start a trend.

    Work continues on the SEMA van...

    I've got the interior cabinet framing roughed out and starting to get down to the final details on the seat frame prior to sending it to powder coat. The bed extension and slides work out nice. The seat folds out just like I planned and I added a gas cylinder to assist the lifting/lowering of the seat back.

    Here are some shots of the interior renderings and then the real thing taking shape....













    The renderings don't show some of the panels that fill in the cabinets but they'll be there. The drawers in the back extend 32" but they're actually 34" deep. Under the seat is a large subwoofer enclosure, otherwise I would have had more room for drawers. The rear platform has some L-track for tie down points.

    Holy smokes!!!
    From concept to reality just like that.

    Is the yellow box in the rendering the sub?

    How is the extruded aluminum inoskeleton framework att'd to the van?

    I am speechless...
