Very cool setup, Jim! How did you attach the wedged pieces of wood to the metal?

Thanks Kristian!,

I attached them with some toggle bolts.  Didn't want to put self tapping screws
Because the wedges are pretty thick on the bottom.  The wegdes are more or less spacers to give support in the middle of the flat panels that the racking mounts to.

Hope this helps,
Jim


Ahh, I see - that's quite clever! Where the flat panels then attached with self tapping screws?

Yup!   The flat panels are the only pieces that are mounted to the van "permanently".  Everything else has just a few screws holding it from moving around.

Thanks for clarifying! I've just bought a small van and although I'm not sure I'll add shelves and such I guess I still would be a little hesitant to "puncture" the metal... But as long as I don't see daylight or smell diesel I guess it'll be okay‚Ķ.!  [wink]

Thanks again.

Here are some pics of mine. It's not done yet but all the systainers have a home and are really easy to get in and out.

Wing79, I'm about to start building out my Promaster and I'm using what you did as my inspiration. Is that 1/8 tempered hardboard you used on the walls? MDO for the shelves?
Thanks!

Actually I used 3/4 MDO for the entire project, including the walls
