first stepvan build Wed, 01/23/13 9:02 PM (permalink)
I just bought my first step van an 89 gmc Grumman with a 5 speed and 350 for 2200. Truck is in great condition with 2 ton axles and I will be converting it into a full kitchen for catering. Already have a brand new 8x20 concession trailer and wanted to build a truck myself but I have some questions. Behind the seat I have 13 and a half feet and 8.5 wide but the ceiling is only around 72 or 74 where am I going to be able to find a low profile hood for a decent price hopefully used. I called dept of health and they said I can run all electrical in conduit on the outside of the wall so I wont worry about where to run what wires before I put the walls up but where do I even start... What size pinkboard should I put on the walls if any followed by how thick of plywood 1/4"? should I lay down the floor first like you would normally in most things or save that for later on?ill be posting pics of the truck as soon as I can but would like some tips along the way thanks for reading!
