Not sure about naming this van. My wife-to-be came up with 'Moby Dick'.

New mobile sink project started

I started building a sink that could be easily be shuffled in/out without much hassle. There are holes in the van's floor already that could be used for drainage, but I'm not sure how I feel about dribbling water near metal and any rust that might appear.

Got this off craigslist:

Got a steam table pan, thanks to a tip from frscke1, which cost a lot less than any other small sink out there. Cut out the drain hole, it was in the ballpark.

Carving up IKEA stuff is easy, because their crap is basically made of cardboard. Believe it or not, it's still structurally sound.

The heater/blower in the back was the only real obstacle. I cut out the back corner, and bent some flashing to fit and bolted it all down. Then used some 3M foil heating/duct tape to seal it up. More pics later, as I'm waiting for the glue/silicone to set after I got everything together. Also the tank I ordered from Amazon had a hole in it, so I'm waiting on a new one......

We will see when you splash water out of the sink ....

I would replace the top with a good pc of wood & seal it, with bar topping resin.

A little work now & save a lot of work later ....

Eh, I'm just going to hit the top and inside with a couple of coats of heavy duty spray water sealer. If no bueno after that I'll rethink the top surface.

My waterproofing scheme came to a standstill when the Ikea laminate rejected the spray sealer. Got a piece of plywood, sprayed it, then glued and screwed to the top. Added a latch for the front. then everything else came together pretty easily, though the plumbing was a little fiddly. Only thing left is to bolt it somehow to the van's wall and add a tie down strap to the tank so it's not sliding around inside the cabinet.
