Hey Tim,

I thought I posted this a ways back but could not find.. I posted up the same in mud, here is what I posted a few months ago:

I made a platform last week and finished it up tonight. I used the mat as the template.

I would love a fridge slide but POs are hard to come by around here. This mod cost me under 100.00. Might add a single drawer if my carpenter buddy has time to fab me one..

I used existing bolt holes to mount the platform to rig, so no drilling. Added an extra piece on the forward end to compensate for the dip. I also choose the fridge location because Ben can still recline his seat if tired and I can open the fridge and the lid will stay open.

I added carpet to the top of the drawer over lunch () today. Really hesitant to spray sticky glue on the drawer but wanted to make sure it stayed put and protected the hand crafted drawer.

And I made a platform for sleeping that I covered with carpet also.

I am no carpenter but I am happy with the way it came out. Really simple but functional and clean..

ahhh yes.. Funny it is even a bit short for me, my skill saw blade was dull and I wanted a clean cut so the platform kept getting shorter and shorter...hahaha

Really for all you tall guys, you would need the platform to go all they way to the back of the front seat, but I don't need that much distance..
