fixing points for shelving/racking in back of the disco?

Post  jay2578 on Sun Feb 28, 2010 12:22 am

right, i want to build a floor to roof shelving unit in the back of the disco to safely store boxes of tools, recovery gear, cooking equipment etc.
i`m making it out of ply and will cover the whole thing in carpet to match the interior, but where/how shall i fix it to the floor and roof? having a dog guard would obviously make life easier, but they aint cheap and work is very slow at the mo. any ideas?

floor

I have the floor in my 90 hindged at the front so I can lift it to get to the area under/between the wings etc. I then have the shelving and boxes up each side. The floor is on a metal frame and has a reinforcement bar along the back to suport it between the wheel arches, but I guess on the disco you wouldn't need this.

what i`m aiming for is a unit to take maybe 4 of those plastic boxes, floor to ceiling. i have to keep one of the dickie seats for the kids, otherwise one would have to walk! i think my main problem would be fixing at the top, as i say if i had a dog guard that would solve the problem, but they`re expensive and i cant afford one with all the stuff i need to do to get the disco back on the road and work being non-existent at the minute.
