These are my draws made of white malamine board (No runners) used packers so it was free. I had to buy carpet and latches. got the vinal off a mate. I'm thinking of changing it to plywood.
The fridge slider is an Engle.

Allow access for the fuel senderunit which could be located in the floor under the carpet.
Not sure about the 80.
Other wise if u need 2 access it you will need to remove the draw system, and thats a pain.

Hey guys. Im starting to think that a metal frame with ply might be the go for me. Ill keep an eye out for some cheap bits and peices because im not in any great rush to get this done. It would just be good to stop stuff rattling aroun everywhere.

Hi Stromb, good idea! I've just purchased two flat plastic boxes from the Reject Shop with clip on lids that fill the bill. They are about 70 x 40 x 15 cm and were very cheap. They are sturdy enough for me to carry a full set of golf clubs and an electric buggy, shoes and refreshments on top. In one I carry stove, gas, cutlery, plates, billys, emergency food, salt and pepper, matches/cigarette lighter, and a few other bits 'n' pieces, in the other I carry some recovery gear: snatch strap, chain, fold up spade, snatch block, fire starters, and also other bits 'n' pieces. They fit comfortably lengthwise, and side by side, and take up the full length from the back of the seat to the tailgate. I have enough room on either side to store things about the width of an average car battery. When going 4wding all I have to put in is the weekend's food, and the Tirfor, handle and cable. It works for me. If you decide to make them, use 1/4" plywood, mdf isn't waterproof.

Like a lot of the work some of you have done but does anyone know where you can get a standard set of drawings/plans to build drawers for individual model 4by's?

Hi-Low-Lux???? Yeah! A number of years back when I wanted a kitchen and centre roof console for my MQ, I went looking for plans and ideas and came up negative, so I went to one of those specialist places that manufacture and instal these things, pretending that I was going to buy one. I took the mandatory measurements, asked a few questions, like "how is it held in place?", did a few drawings, and then went home and made my own and installed them, complete with padded leatherette exteriors, and a few extra features that weren't on the ones I copied. Have a go, you don't have to be a chippy, just hasten slowly and check everything a couple of times.

Cheers for that Tats. I'm not a qualified chippy but handy with the ol power tools and head so I'll give it a go. Think I might just make up a set of my own custom ones. will give me the chance to use the new 6mx6m shed I just built.

Yeah 10/4 LowLux, great idea. Just make sure you have a drawing to follow, it doesn't matter how rough it is as long as YOU understand it; and make accurate measurements, there's nothing more disappointing than to find your masterpiece doesn't fit! Good luck, Mate, while your doing all this building, I'll just have another round of golf or go 4wheelin'!

Default draw runners

i have some in my patrol & they where brought ones and they only have some alloy angle as the runner and even full still slide with ease hint screw in from side so not to catch & also has on top of draw to protect from damage.base of draw is about 5-10mm up so that only the angle to slide not whole draw..
