Study moving forward

Hi everyone, been away but not quit. A couple things I've done in the pass from weeks have been put in an exterior vent in for my compost toilet. Since I rather not do a roof cut I put a 90 degree elbow (PVC) with a reducer through the exterior wall to an 1 1/2 90 degree standard vent capped with a cyclone vent cover. Besides keeping water out I'll see if will assist( 90) in drying the medium. My CT does have two 5 inch fans and a heater/dryer. Oh yah I'm using a Envirolet MS 10 waterless.
I also came up with a Propane tank storage space (created one) for a 30lb. horizontal mount V. fill on the passenger side.
Yes a lot of small things putting Varathane on the ceiling, gallery vent and trimming the shower out. and today doing some wiring realizing I don't have enough chassis grounds that are need for my project so I made a ground bus bar for seven ground attachments everything wants and needs a chassis ground. So I figure I could control it a lot better(low resistance) if I made what I needed and didn't rely on the trucks exiting ground point. even though I will, as time goes on clean them up too.

Propane Storage

Just wants to give you a look at my propane storage area along with exterior access fire extinguisher. It's not necessarily for propane tank but just when ever one is needed It's a racer thing and I had a few extra inches.
One issues or maybe just a change I had to do when cutting the access hatch for the tank. See the large rivets just above the hinge those are going into the ends of 1/4 x 2 x 4 C channel (floor trusses) that the box is constructed on. Had to go that low because the tank is 12.25 dia. counting the weld so I had to clear the top of the hatch. I have around 3 inches above tank. A factory Class C has all that skirting where as a commercial box doesn't always have it.

Walls Going Up

Hi, well things are still moving forward. With 12v wiring in the ceiling and the cook top exhaust fan opening complete I have started stalling wall paneling (light gray). So I can get to stalling the floor covering and ac power outlets which will be on the floor with short runs of conduit under gallery counter top. I'll be using 1/2 battens at the panel seams.
There will be plenty of light with LED's
