Welcome to the FOG - excellent van storage layout!

In the pic with your vac - how does that little stop come out so that you can take your vac out?  Does it just lift out or...?

The metal pins is only secured in a pair of holes underlying. The weight of the vac holds it in place.

Thanks for all your images.  I am one of many (some here) who are interested specifically in the Ford Transit due to the fact that it will be introduced here late 2013 or early 2014.

Thinking about the Transit Custom? It is in Denmark introduced at the beginning of next year - though not in a size similar to mine!  Mad

I believe that the Transit Custom in your area is what is called the Transit Connect here.  That model will also become a new model in the Fall of 2013.  The 2014 Transit will look very much like a Sprinter here.

I'm also looking forward to the USA version of the Transit.  Although I'm sure there wont be a Diesel version so its going to have some disappointments from the start.  Sure wish the Hiace was coming to the USA!

Jesus!! Man!  Wish you Americans became more environmental friendly I really don't see the point in a 3.7 litre transit.    

Not like you can even drive fast on your massive roads your speed limits are slow.   Top speed of my van is just under 100mph

I have a 1.6van which holds ALL my festool and it carried 25sheets of 18mm plywood 10inside my van and 15ontop of my van no problem at all apart from when it came to stopping it took a long time but engine size wouldn't help with breaking.

I don't get why we have these huge engines in our vehicles. The roads around my area are crowded and the highest speed you are able to travel before getting a ticket is 65 mph. My Nissan Titan has a 5.6 liter v8 gas guzzler in it, I average 11.5 mpg driving on local roads.  I would love to see more diesel options with smaller but powerful engines.

I was wrong.  It is a 3.2 liter.  Here is a link:  http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2012/12/10/2014-ford-transit-van-fuel-efficient-diesel-option-unveiled/

I haven't had a diesel before but things like "diesel liquid tank" in the thread above makes me wonder about operating costs.

Guys,

Personally I agree with you about the engine sizes.  My gas mileage is about the same as Dave's, but I also tow virtually every day a 5000 lb trailer.  That is why I am interested in the Transit.

I would be all over a 1.6 to 2.4 liter Diesel Van!

Although I am happy to see a diesel version of the Transit even at 3.4 liters.  I wonder what the MPG and price will be?  The Mercedes Sprinter has been my Business goal but maybe the Transit will outperform in quality and longevity.  Sprinter Started with a 5 cylinder but then changed several years back....wonder why ford is going with the 5?

In any case I plan to implement the design and storage methods used in this thread.  For reference check out the following article:

I drive a Transit, almost one year old.  Down here they are only available in 2.2 liters but with different power ratings.  
3 to be specific: 115, 135 and 155Hp.  Mine is a 155Hp and it averages out at 9L/100km.
It's a very pleasant car to drive, max load is 1500kg and even then it's fast and responsive, max. tow is 3200kg

Great van...




WoodguyDK,

Looks great!  I'have plans to outfit mine, materials are already bought but I just don't seem to find the time to get to it...
Well you're pictures have inspired me, maybe with the upcoming holidays...

I am glad that the pictures could inspire you.  Smile
My experience tells me that it really pays to think the build through properly before starting the project.
Both in terms of what tools to bring, but also what has to be good and bad in previous vans.

Minor update !  Thumbs Up

I have for some time wanted to make a drawer in the unused space under the deck at the side door.
I actually thought that I would use the space to store items. But I decided later that a drawer in this position could provide easy access to some of the tools I use most.
To get the drawer to slide properly, I mounted a sliding rail on the lower floor at the front edge of the drawer. In the rear of the drawer, I have installed two small wheels pressing against the underside of the upper floor.
It is the same design as I have used on the drawers at rear doors.

That is an awesome van, great stuff. I'm doing mine on Monday, got the material ready to pick up. Going to have to have to try a little harder after seeing this inspiration. Cheers

This is really nicely done, but i wonder if there is still enough room for materials like panels, wood etc that you need on site? Do you use a trailer or something?

I bought a Isuzu Dmax pick up truck last year, i don't do enough site work to have a van and this truck is also my car. So even if its a 3L 185HP guzzler it is still much cheaper to run than a van and a separate car. I have a closed trailer for it but i am wondering if i should do the interior of it, half the time i use it is is just to transport furniture or materials.

Hi there.
I'm happy that my pictures got you inspired.
The building of my van is in many eyes overkill - But I enjoyed the process and my everyday use of it.  Laughing

Thanks for your comment.  Thumbs Up
Of course the racking optaines a lot of space, but I still have room for ex. 20 full-sheets of 1" plywood or lumber up to 10 feet in length.
I have a large trailer, and strong roof bars on the van. But mostly, the materials are delivered directly to the site or workshop from my suppliers.

At least I think that a way to messy van, tells something about a craftsman's missing sense of order and attention to detail.  Laughing

Really nice.  Especially like the lights, how are they wired ?  Also what is the black material on the floor ?  Looks quite tough but probably expensive.

Looks like phenolic plywood to me the stuff they put on trailer floors. It's not bad for price I'm sure I paid around 30 to £40  for an 18mm sheet from champion timber.

We call it "støbekrydsfiner" here in Denmark. It's used for making casting molds for concrete. It's normally birch ply coated with a phenol film.

Woodguy.

The lightbars are only powered by the main 12V battery. (Directly connectet to the original light sockets) But the LED light is extremely bright and also has a very low power consumption.
The bars are fabricated by a danish company called Raaco.
In denmark the price is aound 30 USD per ongoing feet.

Is that HDO or MDO plywood?  Seems like HDO is used in the USA for concrete forms but usually in white....black is better.

Thanks for sharing.  You've got me all excited to get organized.

Hey Guys

I am new on this site - It's really exciting to see your projects and tools.  Thumbs Up
I have a small carpentryfirm in Denmark.
My new van arrived a few months ago and I just got time to prepare it for work.

This is the most organized work vehicle I have ever seen.  I am an HVAC serviceman and as busy a I have stayed at past companies, I could never get my van to look like this.  Good job.

I know it sounds quite simple, but its easy to keep it clean and organized, if every piece tool has its own place........ AND you remember to put it at the right spot.  Big Grin

The whole build took around 55 hours, including the latest update.
And of course a lot of thinking, planning and drawing before the build began.  Unsure

Som man ville sige i Dansk, FEDT

Wow, what a fantastic job building that van. Nice job getting something out of every single inch of space. The extension cords sure brings back memories, red and green, not to mention the NKT boxes.
