Preliminary Design Ideas (PDI)
In the similar boat, read your post, took a nice nap and came up with this.
Do you know how tall your upper cabinets will be? How deep?
Suggest making a template of the wall curves for end caps and sectional dividers based on your cabinet height and depth concept.
On the drivers side, going the full length.
The plywood skin forming up the back of the cabinet will slide in from the back side for wiring changes, can be in sections to make it easier to slide in and out. Thanks for the idea RDinNHandAZ.
Face plate with door panels is built like a ladder (imagery) doors hinged on top with hold-em ups and lock-em down closed.
Cabinet bottom will be attached to the bottom of the face plate and a cleat on the back to the van.
Top of face plate will be attached to a cleat along the top to the van.
Construction concern in case of a crash, butted up against the front bulkhead to inhibit driver headache.
