    Thanks guys - I'm looking at both options.

    Still on the theme of storage is the under tray on my raptor dash - useful for maps etc.

    Absolute bargain Red, I paid £28 for mine and a further £6 on a new lock.

    No there's an inch between the dash and my hand - I checked that before I got it!:crazy_driver:

    Finally got around to fitting the next shelf - it is 12mm ply with ally angle on the sides to reinforce it. The long term aspiration is that the misses and me will go on a long trip and be able to sleep in the back, the new shelf is the middle section of the bed - more on that in the future.

    The shelf is also supported by the green storage boxes.

    Also added some nice carpet.

    Cheers Jason, hopefully get the carpet finished off this weekend.

    I'll sort the rear shelf out next month. Need to move the speakers first......

    Finally finished off the carpeting - although I might cover the door cards yet....

    Back to thinking about fitting a cooker to the back door. As usual I'm not prepared to spend £200+ for a fancy box. Anyone built anything recently?

    Good spot to source some stuff. Too busy this weekend but hopefully next one will allow time for development.

    Following a good measurement, I can't fit a cooker on the back door as there is only a 7cm gap between the door and ice box - I'm happy with the ice box (blood type). The alternative is to source a smaller cooker than I have which can be easily accessed. Perhaps a folding shelf needed........

    That's what I currently have, but it's just a bit too wide. Something similar without the centre grill would be ideal.

    I knocked this together for last summers Hols .

    I have two 12v batteries for the fridge and a charger that I can plug into 240v when available or charge off the vehicle !

    Two drawers go underneath and have a put a 1500w transformer in a box under the cubby box.

    All worked a treat, Organisation a must when you have 3 sprogs, 12mm ply a bit heavy (used over 3 sheets) but you can't have yeh cake and eat it !

    That looks very very impressive mate! Very impressed!

    Only thing i would say, if that's a 1500W inverter rather than transformer then make sure it has ventilation and get a fan on it (redhand very kindly supplied me with a good fan for my inverter)
