    I like the way you did the attachment hinge for the opening. I need to re-due the way I threw mine on... It does not stay closed when I drive, I will be attaching a better hinge after seeing yours. Maybe the darn thing won't blow open with a clasp as well?!

    Nice work for sure looking sharp.

    Very nice!

    Very nicely done! Thats the coolest thing about the build of our beloved Van, there are no limitations to what your vision is and sometimes your on the same wavelength as another member or you push open a door in their mind to look at something different 👍 its all good!
