hi, we have just bought a 1992 patrol and i did a search for ideas /plans for homemade storage systems for it, and noticed that the people with them have emailed their pictures to the person asking, so i couldn't get to see them, so if anyones got any pictures of storage that they have made, i would be realy interested in seeing them to give us an idea of the different ways they are made, we have a 40litre freezer to fit in there and not being on the tall side we would like the freezer to not be on the top. my email address is joechris15@bigpond.com if that helps, thanks from chris.

These aren't home made, but have three draws on one side & fridge/freezer on the other.

Hi gonebush SA,

Here are some pics of my drawers in my 200. It has the 40L fridge slide at the draw level, along with my ARB compressor, 60L water tank and inverter.




Hope it gives you some ideas.


Cheers

This thread over at pradopoint is Prado specific but has lots of photos of various home made setups. You might get some ideas from it.

hi, firstly a big thanks to those emails and replies i've got so far, one question though- is there enough air room around the fridge/freezer for it to work ok? it just seems that some don't seem to have much in the way of air flow. and how does the cord for the fridge stay in place when the fridge is on a runner being pulled in and out?
thanks again from chris, and keep those replies coming in the more ideas the better.

gonebush,
Mine is not covered in at the rear and I have an occy strap from the cargo barrier holding the power lead up out the way. Some guys have fitted a computer fan in the enclosed area.

On the Engels, the cooling vents are on the side and on the top at the back. Hard to see in the pic (engels with twozone) but I have about 50mm of room at the end for air. I have found there is more than enough room for the heat to get out (hot air rises).

I have a plug at the back of the fridge slide for the power, the cord just slides under the fridge as it returns, but gotta admit occasionally it gets caught if I don't make sure the cord is in the middle rather than to the side.

Cheers

Captain
