I'm also busy coating the chassis with Duram 88. How many coats did you give it?

I did it with a paint brush and did not add water to the Duram so I did single coat and then just checked for any patches or missed spots.

I had a FR drawer system that I had taken out to fit my fridge. But wanted a fridge slide. So with some scrap metal in the garage a day or two and the end result.

I installed a drawer system. Considering that it's not the first one I've done I made some doff errors. First time in a patrol though. But it was a rush to get the groceries bought before lockdown so I didn't do my usual amount of OTT planning. But anyhoo lessons learned for next time
It has a built in double headed compressor that makes use of the rear aircon for cooling with vents out the top of the compartment lid (under cats ass).
There is also a removable hatch to access the fuel pump

Primary mistakes.
1. Drawers too shallow. I thought I was clever to reduce the depth and now regret it
2. Side compartments narrower than anticipated. Can't fit my intended stuff in them.
So the drawer frame should have been narrower and taller
