Refrigerator Van Transformation.

Me and my buddy transform this NISSAN NV400 model van to a refrigerator van for his business with a wooden structure of 2×2 and 2×4 pine lumber.
Insulate the whole interior using 2 and 4 inch polystyrene sheets.
We cover it using 1/6 and 1/2 plywood and dress it using plastic flooring sheets covering.
The Van has two doors witch where made by the refrigeration guy.
Refrigeration system for -4° F (-20° C) degrees.

Thanx for watching
