I'll make an MFT style top, similar to the seat cushion, for the vacant slot at the bottom sometime.
I need to get some better labels made up too if anyone has any suggestions?

Great van!
Is this Melamine plated birch plywood?
Color looks nice and professional for the van build!

Also, you can definitely disguise as a carpenter... ;)

That is an awesome build for your van.  Welcome to FOG and great first post.

For my Systainer labels, I use a Brother P-touch labeler with 1" clear tape and a large font.  I stick clear tape with black letters on the T-loc green twist handles and it's really clear to see what's in them from across the room.  Here's one on Amazon for reference - https://www.amazon.com/Brother-PTD600VP-PC-Connectable-Split-Back-High-Resolution/dp/B00OCEKCDA/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1535833243&sr=8-5&keywords=p-touch+labeler

I tend to overdo it sometimes.
I started printing labels with name of the tool, colored pictures of the Tools and a rough list of what is inside the Systainer.

I print them on thicker gloss paper, laminate them and cut them to fit the label slots. 4 per Systainer, so you have front, left and right side labeled.

I like it, but it might be too much for someone else’s taste. ;)
