Did a little rat killing today,while waiting on shower and countertop fabrication to get here.

Epoxied a couple plugs in the stock floor mounting holes and also cleaned up the wiring that runs through the upper cabinets with some split loom.

I had originally thought I would make aluminum covers, but this split loom was quick and cheap.
I don't care for the split loom, now that it is in and will probably form some aluminum covers at some point.

Looks like I won't see the countertop and shower fabrication till next week.

Yes, carbon fiber.
I used the word varnish loosely, it is actually clear urethane to protect the epoxy from UV exposure and give a final finish.

that will protect from the weathers? usually how long does a new fresh coat is needed to protect the van again?

The epoxy protects from weather, the clear coat protects the epoxy from UV damage.
On the inside of the van where these cabinets are located, the clear coat should last for many moons.

Got the upper cabinet doors hung for the last time and the strike plates whittled to final fit.
Looks pretty good with the satin finish, even with the warts, pimples, skeeters and dust.

Picked up the shower pan fabrication today.
It is a two piece design with one piece being permanently bolted to the floor with the drain.
The domestic water tank will nest in the rear portion of it
