So all the PEX lines and PVC are dry fitted. The pump is mounted just wanting for the some parts (I fell out to the truck with the pump in my hand and snapped off the clip...lol). I built a housing unit for the hot water tank out of plywood and FRP. I'm waiting for carriage bolts from Fastenal so i can mount gray tank under the truck.

I have an 2003 F450 Ford chasis (mini-bus) [22ft x 9ft) That Im converting to a food truck and was wondering where I could get a GOOD deal on Stainless steel panel/sheets for the walls and counter areas.  OR, is there something else I can use instead?  Currently I have a "friend" that can get me 1/8th thick sheets for $80- is that good or what?
Thanks,

Make sure you find out what finish is on the s/s (#4 is a common restaurant finish). I assume you want the steel for the walls? 1/8" is some burly stuff. Weight will add up quick, not to mention trying to handle a 4x8' sheet solo.

That said, smokin deal by weight

Finally finished all the plumbing. Both tanks are in and everything is ready to go. Now moving on to the service window area.

Thanks I am very proud. lol I really do hate that PVC purple primer, that stuff gets every where.
 
Side note: There are two rubber couplers, one by the floor and the other by the hand sink. I put them there so if i have ever have to take out a drain or a main part of the plumbing sink I can do so.

Thanks! Um... the orange thing is a ball valve and the white thing is a drain for the tank. I'll take a better picture. I get so into the build i just never think about taking pictures step by step. lol

It's a strainer to protect the water pump.

Vic,
Not a big deal but those ShurFlow pumps will take a beating when it comes to getting junk in them. I have been testing my Pork Injector Pump with all kinds of spices and just about anything else I can get through the hose and have only managed to clog the hose never the pump. Shurflow makes an amazing product.

If water is coming from the fresh tank and going to the pump then the water heater how is there a chance for stuff to get in it? what is it staining?

The strainer is there just ten dollar insurance policy. My fill cap on the out side doesnt have a mesh screen or anything besides a cap. Its a 1 1/4 inch direct line to the tank. I'm sure I'm going to get something in my fresh tank at one point (dirt from a hose or a bug).

Thanks Marco. I mounted the sink to the wall with 4 screws. The faucet also pinned the sink to the wall. The faucet is held in by 90 degree drop ear elbow which are screwed to the wall. The PVC plumbing also helps hold the sink too.

Well its been awhile but got somethings done on the truck. I did more done in the winter then i do when the weather is nice. lol But I finished the awning and the window install.
" _mce_src="http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/null" />
[image]http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/%3Ca%20href=" alt="" />Instead of the piston arms i used an Aluminum square tubing to hold open the window. I'm trying to use all the stuff i have already to save some money. Plus I can open and close the window from inside the truck. Also the locks are in the inside of the window.

I also made a 6ft work table in front of the service window. Got the wood from Lowes. Its 3/4 by 2ft wide, 6ft long. I cut it 3 inches wider then the wheel well. I used 1 1/2 galv pipe to support the front and mounted 2 inch  "L" shaped Aluminum to support the back. I used Hollaender speed rail flanges to hold the
1 1/2 galv pipe. (Oh i ordered enough flanges to hold my equipment stand table. Just didnt mount them yet).

And the last thing i did on the truck was use Eternabond tape to seal the seams and rivets i put in the roof. It was pretty good stuff, easy to use. It will work on any surface like all metals, pvc, abs,  fiberglass. Read about it from an RV sales mag. They say it will last forever, but well just have to see about that. lol It wasnt cheap. Got it from amazon.

O and i put in another vent in the ceiling.

Table looks good, but..........I bet the hd won't let you have it. It's not nsf, were you planning on cutting on it?
It's going to get wet every time you wash your hands, and crap will find it's way into the bolt holes.
Speaking of washing your hands.... do you need to have separation between the hand sink and the 3 bay?

Thanks. I dont plan on cutting on it. I will have a cutting board. I want to use an  Epoxy over it. We have a wood table at work and the HD says nothing. We dont cut on it. Always have a cutting a poly cutting board on it. As for the hand sink, there is not code about seperation of a hand sink to 3 bay. They just want you to have one.

I'm not going to lie, I filled my holes with weld, but I also only had about 20 holes. lol It worked out great tho. I filled them in from the inside and then sanded the outside. The small pin holes in the weld i'm going to use fine bondo to make a flush finish. I'll take pictures of the filled holes and when there sanded. I'll send you the pictures tomorrow night.

 
How are these weld-filled holes working out for you? Planning on doing the same thing for my aluminum stepvan walls. Only have about 6 relatively small holes to fill...

Thanks for the comments, I hope everything works out for you. Any questions just ask.
Yeah welding the holes worked great. just have to go slow to pool up the weld into the hole. try it out on a test piece.

Its been to long since i posted anything good on this thread. lol Summer is full of working on other stuff besides the truck. As of right now I'm stripping the truck of its paint cause the last paint job was bad. It is the worst part of this build. But i FINALLY got equipment! 27 inch sandwich unit, 24in griddle/4 burner comb, and deep fryer. The Fryer and griddle combo is new. I love craigslist. Nothing is hooked up yet, I still have to add a divider between the burners and deep fryer. I'm also going to add two s/s walls on each side of the hood. I want to try to limit fat and oil from going all over the place.

New equipment is so cool. Looks awesome. Sorry to hear about the re-paint. How high does the wall have to be between your fryer and cook top?

Thank you. Yeah the paint job was bad and the truck on one side was weathered and chipping so i had to do it. Its the worst part. But anyway, I do not know how high the wall has to be. The equipment guy just said there has to be something to seperate the two. I have seen sheilds that chip onto the fry that are about 16inch tall at another equipment store in Newark, NJ. I'm going to have to find out more info about it. I'm guessing i have to talk to a fire marshal or look into the national Fire hand book.

hey, MIke it looks great good job. the equipment looks good. call the Hd he will tell you how high the shield should be.
also the fryer manufacture sells the sheilds for there fryers as an option. but i would make one out of s/s much cheaper.
we should get together call me when you have time.

i think what's keeping it from not being flush may be the gas line hook ups if they are running along the back wall. My grill is about 6 " from the wall b/c of the regulator on the back. I'll get a pic of it tomorrow

There has been a bunch of talk here on that question but if it were me I'd check the local regs. And (lol) before you ask who to consult that depends on your city, county, and state. While your at it ask about what surface requirements are required behind your equipment. SS, insulation, what ever.

If your doing a search here that's very cool, but again I would suggest you speak in person to a local in charge type. And if and when you do be careful. They may say things like we advise this or that. That's code for it's not in the book (the law)  but we think it should be the law.
 
BOCA is a code that is written by lobbyist in DC. It is then adopted (or not)  by cities, states and counties.  
 
Some local inspectors try and enforce BOCA codes even though they have not been adopted locally. That happens a lot here locally.
 
Sorry to say it's a thin line but if you are sharp in your dealings with the code masters (lol) plumbing, electrical, fire dept, etc, you'll do fine. But if you write down a list of your questions and go sit down with them and make very careful notes on their answers you'll be way ahead of the game. If you don't understand the answer ask again and again until you know in your mind that your 100% sure of the answer. Then read their code books to make sure they are selling you the straight dope. Always remember their job is not to help you get into this business, but to make sure you do it right. Your job is to open your doors but in a legal way that is in compliance with the rules and regulations.
 
And I'm not telling you to try and cheat your way thru this process, just that you need to know the code as well as they do. And if you don't they will put you thru a ton of hoops that are costly and time consuming. 
 
Don't think after reading this it isn't worth it it is but you can't go into this business without having your act together.
 
good luck
jack

Thanks Doc. I have the HD on speed dial. I do not proceed with anything w/o asking first. All the elected officals have no clue what a food truck is in my area. There is so much gray area its not even funny. lol

Zhorzh, ask Zarick if he remembers the truck he stretched for Joe.....I drove that thing for several years.  This truck was stretched about 10 feet and had a tag axel.

Got a question for OP. How tall is your work space? I've been looking at used vans and they all seem like you couldn't stand up in them.

unless you are over 7ft tall you will fit just fine in a step van AKA BOX TRUCK  not a regular van

My truck is 73 inches tall. I'm only 5' 10''. So it works for me. Cleaning the ceiling is going to be easy! haha. I fit fine. I don't hit my head or anything. But I know there are 7ft model trucks out there. You can come and see mine if you want.

I'm 6'4" and my truck has low over head as well. I'm hoping that the lower interior ceiling height will allow the truck exhaust fan to remove the hot air more quickly. Keeping my fingers crossed. LOL
