Hi Paceman, it is all construction plywood, various thicknesses as I used some new stuff and older left overs. I usually buy 2400 x 1200mm sheets and cut it up myself, it is cheaper than getting smaller sheets.

Top of the lower drawer section (in the car) is carpeted, just a piece of Bunnings carpet.

Cheers
Peter

thanks, mate...

a couple of more questions, if that's ok...

how have you attached the carcass uprights to the base and top horizontal pieces? glued and screwed?

how does the whole thing attach to the cargo area floor?

also, there looks to be a thin carpeted piece that might impede the drawers coming out?

Pic 1, 2 & 3 - bolts into existing child restraint and seat belt points on each side

also, there looks to be a thin carpeted piece that might impede the drawers coming out?If you refer to the small piece of carpet at the front on the very bottom, that is part of the base piece and at the front it is curved to match the actual 3rd row seat space. That carpet is approx 2mm thick, the plastic runners are 5mm high and they are what the drawer base slides on. i.e. the drawer base is 3mm higher than the piece of carpet, if that make sense.
Cheers
Peter

Default New drawers and camp kitchen

Used the new pull out kitchen for the first time on a trip a couple of weeks ago, made my trip heaps easier catering wise. Only problem was making coffee in the rain , I struggled to hold the umbrella in place ! .

A mate on the trip rolled out his new kings rear awning just to wind me up, and it did. So I went shopping when I got back and bought a rear awning. I bought the Anaconda rear awning as I thought it had a smaller profile than the kings awning, not knocking the kings product. Both awnings were the same price anyway.

To fit the awning at a convenient height across the back of the alloy roof tray I moved the side awning forward so one does not get in the way of the other.

So, lesson learned - if you are going to work out the back of the car you need a rear awning too.


Cheers
Peter

I camped out of the back of my 4wd for years and had the same rain issue. Particularly irking when trying to load gear in the rain. Then I bought a Foxwing (there are a number of other similar products now) and it dramatically improved the pleasure of camping in summer sun, winter dew and rain any time. Its a 3/4 of a circle for those who haven't seen, covering one side and rear. Heartily recommend.

Default New Rear drawers with camp kitchen

[QUOTE=1533rl;619708]Hi David, the original measurements off the website said 445mm wide and that is what I worked on, when I brought the fridge slide home it seemed to be wider so I checked the actual width and it was 525mm and I then checked the website and the new specs were already there. Had I sussed the change beforehand I would have made my own slide at 425mm to fit my fridge or even made the kitchen a bit narrower. Either way it was my fault not Kings.
Maybe I should see if anyone has a previous model slide that is too narrow for their fridge due to the change !!!!

Further to the conversation about the width of the new model of kings 60lt fridge slide, I was going to copy another forum member and make a new one out of aluminium angle but when I went to the BGS I had to sit down and use an inhaler when I saw the price. How did ali get so expensive ?
Anyway, I called into a sheet metal place I used a couple of years ago to make some firepits and asked how much to cut the fridge slide down to this size and it was the same as the cost of the ali angle. So they did their laser magic and plasma voodoo and the slide was trimmed down to 420mm to fit the (new) fridge. A spray with flat black paint and moving the threaded inserts in the car and I now have everything back to my original specs - i.e. space to get my folding camping chair into.
The old fridge, a waeco ff40 (yes 18 y.o.) started acting up so I picked up a cfx40 from anaconda as they are the outgoing model, if I get 18 years out of it I won't complain.
So if you're like me and can't weld thin sheet metal that is how you get a slimmer fridge slide !!!
Cheers
Peter
