Finishing somethings up on the gray water tank.
Installed the drain so it goes out the back. Their will be a side storage box that will be in the way for going out the side.
Will use pool flush hose for draining.Think the hose will now take up much space.

Also got the city water inlet installed. Had a cutout that was for the box when it was mounted on the van chassis. Think it was a fuel fill ?
Bent and welded up a box for the fitting. Tucked it inside the box rail to keep out of harms way.

Did some fitting of the track system to the truck box. Using 3/8 x 16 rivnuts . Installed the top one the adjusted the track.
Also made some plastic washers / spacers for the lift trucks. This will keep in centered in the track, this is also where the pulley rides.

Also test fit the plastic track guide's . This is UHMW plastic also used for the washers.

And ran into one problem with the track. Same number but not the same size. One is just a little tighter by .035". So I needed to trim the pins again. The other track,no problem. ???
