They look good. Perhaps an indicative price range on say a few standard vehicles, patrol, prado, pajero, cruiser?

Oh, and welcome aboard.

Hi Mace
thanks for the welcome message
and thanks to D4D for helping post the photo .
i will learn how to post photos properly eventually.

i have been building drawer systems for along time for my self and mates
most of them have been nissan patrols, im just starting to sell a few more mostly as a hobby between jobs.
so at the moment i cant offer specific systems for specific vehicles. but i can build to size and  i  believe 
my prices are good.
In the next few days i will be trying to put up some more photos with some prices.
i have 9 different units built and ready for sale that range from small single drawers to larger 2drawer systems which i will post photos with prices .

cheers Andrew

Watching with great interest. I like that last photo with the table.

Have you done a Pajero (NT Exceed) with full wings and access to child restraints?

I'm very interested, looking also at the Drifta drawers.

Oh, shipping to Adelaide, is that possible?

I'd also be interested in prices for the Paj. Can you do fridge slides on top of the drawers?
I'll happily volunteer the use of my NT for a pattern if needs be ;D

You had me at hello :laugh:
I'd be keen fora price on a single draw with the wings for a 100 series. I'll get the dimensions later, but looking to have it high enough that when the back seat is down,it can be a sleeping platform.
Would you do teflon runners instead of the traditional runners? Similar to Drifta draws, they seem to have more draw space than when with a normal runner.

Hey mate, nice workmanship on the drawers, the carpet laying looks great. One thing I would suggest is where you can see the raw wood, give it a coat or 2 of flat black paint. It will make it blend in and look great.

A single drawer around 1000 long x 275 high x 540 wide would be $425
Plus wings for a single drawer $75.
I will have a look into the Teflon slides and get back to you.

I have a set of these draws I purchased a single draw off Andrew about 4mths ago and they are of the highest quality. Gee the bloke even delivered them to my house in Rosebud for no charge. Great guy, great product, great service. If your thinking about getting a set go for it.
