My shelf isnt totally done i just made it and hung it up. Still have to make it work. Its 6ft long 14 inchs wide. I used 3/4 inch aluminum square tube as the support, a S/S continue hinge. The lights are 12 volt, have 2 fluorescents 8 watts and give off 600 lumens. They have a switch on the fixture which i liked. I have a master switch in the front of the truck. They work great. Next on my list is the propane!!! I'm tired of talking about hooking it up and just want to do it already. I'll post pictuers step by step of that.

So i completed my service shelf. I used s/s 1/8 cable, "eye" bolts, and s/s clips to hold up the shelf. As for locking it down to the truck i used rubber stoppers from keeping from banging out the side of the truck and 2 mini rubber hood holddowns to secure it down.

are the corners at all remotely sharp or pointy ? if so get some rubber on them, that stuff will cut you like a razor blade, so many times I caught my arm on my gen top and sliced myself before I rounded the edges.

Yeah the corners are sharp I'm going to round them out. I'm going to add Black edge Trim Lok. Its snaps onto the edge.
Thanks Doc, the holddowns were a 2.99 couldnt beat it.

I have a 27inch sandwich unit at the front of the truck across from the sink. It has a very deep compartment. I also have a frig going on the right side at the back of the truck next to the table.

Lol thanks. It was the first time i have ever bent metal. Beginners luck i guess. I used 22 ga S/S I used 1/4inch bolts and wing nuts. So the side walls can come off and come apart for easy clean. Oh code says you only need a 8 inch shield to seperate open flame from a fryer. The walls are 15 inch high. I wanted to make it higher then the fryer. Just in case.

Again good job. Can you still hang your baskets in the back? And I just thought of this.....your going to have a high lift to swing your baskets out to dump your fries or what ever. But still good job. Looks great.

 I can still hang the baskets. I took that wall bracket mount from one i saw at a restaurant supply store. lol  And i was thinking about how high i have to lift them but that was the height of the s/s i had, so i used it.

Sweet hopefully they will. Texas is a cool state. worked in houston for a few months on an internship.  Loved it there. Hope you find some cool trucks down there. There will be a lot of taco carts and tex-mex cuisine. let me know how it goes.

After running back and forth to home depot a million times, i finally plumbed all the propane lines. I used 3/4 inch black pipe. I have two high pressure and one low pressure regulators. A local propane place made me flexible pig tails that connect the propane tanks to the regulators. I am just waiting for the 3/4 inch flex hose to connect my stove top and fryer. Will post pictures soon of the final outcome. Oh... I checked for leaks.... and there wasnt any! Plus i had someone install propane for a living help me out. lol What a few burgers will do. hahaha
