Got some more done!
Upper cabinet is all finished and fitted. Direct bolt in on adventure wagon kits. just gotta add side framing in and then skin the sides and bottom! Three of these will go in each van for upper storage.

I will finish covering the other fenderwell cover tomorrow and skin the upper cabinets!.

All that is left on the van really is for a cabinet person to finish up the drawers and faces!

Why do both the galley and the fridge cabinet extend under the bed frame? Trying to understand that part! Also, the wheel well covers, is there any storage or anything useful inside? Just asking, not judging at all.

You've influenced my build quite a bit BTW. Last night I built my weld table for my new TIG rig. I've NEVER welded a thing in my life, but I am about to start butchering some metal to learn.

Because i's designed for flarespace users or traditional bed layout users (such as this)
Maximizes useable space for storage and flexibility.

Wheel well covers, you would have no space for storage. They are as tight as possible against the wells, and have insulation in them. Not a reasonable expectation to have storage within honestly.

The fridge units and most of the upper cabinets are done as well at this point

Entire interior is done and headed to powdercoat tomorrow. Satin black all around
Cabinet guy comes friday to take measurements to start making my 5 interior sets.
This van will be a bamboo veneer, not sure about the others yet. He can CNC everything out, and all 5 interior sets are with a 1/16 of each other, so easy to pump out a kit once someone figures out the color they want!

Two will be going in vans i will be building in May. The other two are for sale.

So, one more upper cabinet to install, And waiting on some updated drawer and face boxes. wasnt happy with the edge reveal, so getting them recut at my expense, but i care more than to just let it go.

Once i put that last upper cabinet in, throw the bed in and finish up some small things and it is ready togo. Still waiting on B pillars :/
