lets start with noMy only suggestion is not doing this; observe how many people elect to remove their roof A/C unit because of the additional weight up high. A higher center of gravity changes how the van handles negatively.
I just created a new thread in the VS30 Database section containing the MB Body and Equipment Guide (and addenda).:Looking for suggestions or previous analysis on accommodating heavier loads in the upper areas (walls/ceiling) of the van, similar in footprint to the upper cabinets many have made and installed. Thanks in advance.
The entire previous generation did,which he was referring to, since I dont think anyone has, or actually will remove the rooftop ac for weight.....on vs30 yet anyways. Im sure there is some weirdo that did it on a ncv3Imaginings, or do you know of actual accounts of VS30 Passenger Vans leaking?
A bit off topic but I would not use MDF anywhere in a vehicle. MDF absorbs moisture like a sponge. Take a look at expanded PVC instead.Kind of interested in this myself. I have been looking a lot lately at different systems but I think I am going to mount MDF directly to the ribs for the shelf I plan on making on both DS and PS (think grayhound bus overhead storage). I am going to do the same across the back. Above and behind the back seat (depending on where the rib is). I figure, 2 bolts on the side rib and 2 bolts on the top rib all on the same piece of MDF.
