Yep there are electrical contacts on the door that transfer to the speaker and door switch.
Yeah the passenger model already had a speaker and wiring in that location, also uses door pins for the transfer. Converting a passenger model has been great, a lot of great bits I'm re-using.I installed a speaker in the slider on my build as well, but I had to run speaker wire down the wire track that follows under the slider step and into the door (a bit of work). I guess the passenger van has contacts, and the cargo (what I started with) does not (?). The Passenger model probably had a speaker in the door to start with eh?
The theory on the gas strut is that it will keep tension on the mounting pins and keep the bed in place when in the van.I have been wondering what the strut was for. I can see now but what is the application that needs it?
The welds look great.

Thanks. So far I'm really happy with the Sprinter. I'm sure in the long run the Sprinter will be more expensive to maintain then say a Transit but I much prefer the Sprinter over the Transit. We are really loving this setup!
