Regarding the extinguisher I decided on 2.5lbs Halotron by Amerex to minimize potential cleanups.
I have been doing fire extinguisher research and love everything about Halon , Halotron, or even CO2.... except none of those agents are good enough for a wood and paper fire....class a fires. The small bottles are only B and C.

The bigger bottles are but we're talking 8 lbs of agent.

Any specific item number or link to what you used? I'm always up for tried and true.

Default Adventure Van Expo

The Adventure Van Expo is this weekend in Mt. Hood Meadows. I will be there for a few hours today with Hein and Kim from 3D Impact . You can see Hein’s HDPE CNC work with 80/20 conversion and ask questions at will. https://www.adventurevanexpo.com/mt-hood-meadows

Yesterday I attended the Adventure Van Expo in Mt. Hood Meadows with DIYVan folks. Hein did all CNC work for me and asked me to be part of his group. They have a lot of great products these days for DIY community. It was great show and a lot of people attended. At 5000’ Sun was brutal but it was not hot.

Regarding my van the most prevailing comment was “wow, this is open” as folks compared it with other "windowless" like layouts. Folks commented that light color of HDPE, aluminum added to this open feeling. beside 360-degree windows.

One fellow looked at it and said “Oh, new Westfalia”, felt good as it was my objective.

I recently purchased these Festoon style, low power bulbs for the Isotemp fridge, see below. I would suggest to search for: Festoon, 12V, length in mm, warm white, for house batteries and add CANBUS for MB powered.

It’s a beautiful van.
It’s one of the best DIY sprinter vans of all time....a classic.
You nailed the desire to create a modern Westfalia.
So much innovation with innovative materials sourcing, attention to detail, and design concepts....plus the fully detailed build documentation set a precedent for others to follow.

Nice to see that people appreciated it in person.

Thanks George - that's for the bulbs, yeah? What I was really digging was the little 3 (or 4) LED unit you retrofitted into the stock overhead light to run off the house batteries. I'll do some more searching and see what I turn up.

edit: found these little guys. One inch square. Should snug into the far end of the stock fixture nicely. Time will tell. https://www.ledsupply.com/leds/12v-led-light-nichia-757
