Had the opportunity to do a little work on the sleeping platform today. 30 degrees F here today, but I was out of the wind in my nephew's garage.
Today was mostly about leveling the two 24"x36" shelving sections. I used my nephew's garage because I needed a level floor/car to do this right.
I will still have to fill in the inside of the L shape with addition shelving platform so that I may sleep on the diagonal(feet at glove box and head at left hip area of rear seat) which will give me approximately 75" of straight sleeping area. Available width will be approximately 36".
There will be storage available under the shelving of about 7" in height(in the area where the rear seat cushion usually sits) and about 14.5" under the shelving where the rear floor boards are.
Going to try and post pics below.
The first two pics show what has allowed me to do this platform. With the rear seat cushion removed(seat backs stay in place), it allows room to fully recline the front passenger seat with the headrest removed. This allows the shelving to be installed over the front passenger seat and the rear seat cushion area. The long part of the L is 60" (24" + 36"). The short section of the L is 36". Once this L shape area is filled with addition shelving, I will obtain about 75" x 36" of sleeping space.
The following photos in the next post will show L shape in place and the clearances around the driver's seat and gear shifter. The shelving just clears the door panels on the passenger side.
Eggman, could I impose upon you to help me orient these pics correctly? Thank you very much sir!
