Disclaimer:Just for the record. I want everyone to know that installing and setting up a truckmount is not as easy as my pictures make it out to be. It's beast work even for mechanically inclined. But very rewarding. It's like creating your own masterpiece. The van is the canvas and your imagination is the only limit.

That's a cool idea. I'm not in the hood alot but one pointed at the instrument panel on record for "what the hell just happen" to the machine is a nice thought.
And @Rob Allen line it. I have the drip pan and stuff goes all over that 1/2" lip from Masterblend when you least expect it. I spend every other weekend washing out the back from spills, hose lint, etc. Don't forget the LED lighting and the insulation.
Slide out truckmount tray something like this. http://www.800toolbox.com/roller_coaster/roller_coaster
I like that roller tray. I need to contact them and see if something can be bolted down to it. Seems there is nothing in any of the samples actually bolted down.

Hey Rob who does your wraps over there? I have been driving around plain for a lil over a year and I think it's time to letter it up. There's a couple places here on the Shore that do it but I don't think their very good.

Nope people don't know what's up with the Nissan NVs. They are half the price of a Sprinter with more power!

personally I like carpet throughout the van. I'm not the type of person to let things leak so itll never be a problem with me. A water leak will dry out in half hour with the heat created by the machine anyhow. Carpet absorbs noise and make things much quieter for the client, Its a cleaner and more professional look as well. I dont want to have a loud machine. I'd also vent the exhaust through the floor. I've actually got about 10 pages worth of design and measurements for shelves and all for a tall NV van I have considered building. But, those plans and measurements are my trade secret. Sorry.;)
We're talking about shelves right?

Rob I had my Nissan NV sprayed with Rhino lining at the floors only then installed a "Bedrug" lining to help protect the Rhino spray from getting scratches, and preventing dents on vehicle it was affordable and well worth it!!! The bedrug also gives you an extra cushion so you won't damage your cleaning equipment etc. I also went with the diamond plate for the sides.
