A few notes:
– The actual cost below is NOT FINAL! It will be updated as the project moves forward.
– Installation hardware and misc are included in major components
– The hours shown are hands-on time spent on the van; we probably spent over 400-600 hours of research and planning which is not accounted here…

    How much did the van itself cost?

    What sink is that? Looks lovely. Trying to gear out my Sprinter. I’m at that phase now. Time to build the counter.

    When you post the labor hours, are they taking into account your combined effort?
    If you spent 100 hours working together, do you count that as 100 hours or 200 man hours since it’s two people?
    I’m trying to figure out how long it’ll take me to complete a build by myself.

      We first wanted to account for the man-hours, but we realized it would be too difficult to track. The hours shown on this page are not man-hours they’re estimated combined effort. For example, if it took us the whole day to install the Maxxair Fan, we entered 8 hours in the table. That being said, I don’t think that two people is twice as efficient, so don’t multiply the time by two! Also, we did our best to provide accurate time, but as we work part time on the van it’s very difficult to track… hours might be a little off…

      Good luck with your conversion!
