Thank you Bill. Here's more pictures

#1 Plywood strips screwed down to act as a dam for Bondo. Area behind the strips was filled with Bondo as the gap between the floor and the Corian was wider than the Corian.
#2 Our rendition of a Corian glue Applicator. The clamp appliies pressure to the plywood base which transfer equal pressure to the two tubes (expoxy and hardner) through a two inch wide piece of plastic plumbing pipe and a half inch wide piece of dowel.
#3 Corian in place but not glued down. Corian was fabricated in four pieces but the two pieces closest to the front of the bus were joined prior to final install. This made it one less joint to deal with when we glued the Corian to the plywood. Final gluing was done using PL Premium
#4 Finishing touches on the fridge trim.
#5 Peter installed this maple transition piece to cover the ceramic/vinyl joint

Looks good Rob. Except for that small issue with the mirror.

Rob

Upgrades look really good.....

What kind of seats did you get? I have got to replace mine - a couple of hundred miles sitting on my 20 yo flexsteels is making my bony #$% really hurt.

Rob, did you have to remove the kick toe heater under the fridge for it to fit? How serious were the modifications yo had to make to the fridge opening?

Thanks

Rob I forgot to mention the modifications above and below the fridge. I guess I was just concentrating on the fact that it fit side to side. Anyways I did not have a toe kick heater rather it was a drawer above and one below. I removed both of them so that now the fridge sits directly on the floor and I have a large cavity at the top. This will be turned into storage space later.

Rob here are a couple of pictures to show you how the fridge sits in the hole. As I said before the big gap at the top will be made into a storage bin. We couldn't have raised the fridge and had the storage area below it because I have a drop panel on the ceiling that diffuses AC. The fridge doors would hit this panel.
