    Default SWB drawer system with fridge slide

    Firstly, the honour of this system is not mine only. Thanks to the following gents who assisted with the building process:

    Piet vd Westhuizen & Andy Faber (Andy put me in direct contact with some real great suppliers and service providers, etc).

    I decided to build this project with ply wood and not use aluminium. The reason being is that I would have used ply wood to strengthen and reinforce large areas of the aluminium carcass, so why use aluminium then...(plus the additional weight)?

    The system provides packing space for small items such as tables / braai grid, etc on the side. This was necessary to move the fridge slide slightly to the left so it does not interfere with the back door when open.

    The system has 3 drawers made from sheet metal covered with carpet. I used 9 mm (or was it 11mm...?) ply wood for the fronts. All drawers can lock and there is also a locking mechanism in place stopping the fridge slide from opening when not used.

    The carcass is made of good quality, 18 mm ply wood also covered in carpet.

    I will add some more pics once the system is back in the car as I had to remove system to transport visitors the next 2 weeks - watch this space!

    Here is my initial design diagram:




    System placed in car, busy with drawers and slide:







    Handles and locks being installed...










    Preparing the drawer front for carpet...


    These are steel brackets levelled with pieces of wood to even out the floor surface area for attaching another small system in fron of the main drawer system. The reason being to mount the main drawer system to the existing holes where seats were mounted and to provide additional packing space.









    I will post some pics of the completed unit as soon as I have put everything back in the Shorty.
