    Demolished the interior (again ).
    Original Fridge N Stove now gone .
    Gas bottle N associated gas lines removed for good.
    Bought new 12 vlt fridge freezer about 15 kg ,to replace the old one which weighed in at some 50 +kgs.
    Now to make new cupboard to( fit behind front passenger seat) house the Fridge , microwave and single burner portable stove.As the cupboard will be narrow i will gain extra floor space and also save about 40 kg in weight.
    Will post photos latter.

    Had to curse and swear today, not at volksie but Murphy. You see, I added a 3 meter Blaze Cut that fitted neatly to the underside of the engine bay lid. Bit of a challenge but ended up neat and tidy. Not that I felt bus was going to burst into flames, what with all new bits in the engine bay. But a bit like Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel giving his address on "climate change and the pathway to an electric planet" at the National Press Club, where he read from a tablet but had a paper copy of his talking points (built in redundancy in case of a primary source failure). Just in case ............

    But then only to find when closed it landed on top of the air filter box, hitting hard on the metal locking thingie.

    So, off with the air box, AFM and stuff replaced with a pod. Neat, tidy and hopefully a happy outcome.

    So now you don't have a cold air intake only all that nice hot air from the engine bay
