Ok so i love to recycle, when i got the gq, the roof was covererd with x2 boards 2200x1400 each and a basket facing left to right not front to back??, either way it was like having a bloody basketball court on the roof, Upside is i think its marine ply, but gunna recycle it anyway.

So after a lot of scribbling on bits of paper, i worked out the best way to run a single back seat, which then converts into a double bed, eventually marine carpet, allum edges, brass hinges, 19"LCD DVD player Subs etc etc.

NOT finished yet, only 3 days down, but here it is so far...get some new pics up when its done sundayish...

Oh yeah, the cost so far,

One sheet 2000x1500x12mm ply - $30
Misc screws, hinges, marine varnish(lotta crap in gge) - $10
Carpet, allum., etc.(lotsa stuff in my gge comes in handy) - $10

The Smile on my face when i see the price of professionally built PLAIN Boring 2 draws - PRICELESS

Sub box yet to be built for around $20, all the wiring amps and subs and speakers etc, transferring from old 'Minime' Pajero

All Done, Just gotta build a Sub box/Arm rest and then its time to wire it all up, inverter power bank and other stuff for the rear...
End up with enough head room with a mattress to just sit up cross legged, oh i miss my old high top Pajero...
Oh yeah turned out to be more like $100 Rear Draws, still a bargain...

Are you a cabinet maker, or just pedantic with your wood work? Looks awesome, can only guess what it would cost to have someone make those up for ya. Love the idea of the false floor too.

Great work, I like the classic interior camper style so you can sleep inside. I'd pay you to help build a set for my GU!

Very impressive!

How did you secure the structure to the floor where the back seat has been removed?

This may save me a great deal of space for my Simpson trip!!!!!!!
