Sorry for the delay Doc.  Here are the measurements for the storage under the bar.

DSCN1313.jpg  DSCN1314.jpg  

All measurements are in mm
The shelf's aluminium, the door and sides are gal.
After the parts were made I fitted in all place then dismantled it that way I didn't have to drill any holes after it came back from the powder coating.

If I can help with any more info let me know. 

Cheers Dave

Now for the next Mod.

Something has to be done with the area in the pantry.
There seems to be a bit of wasted space so the plan is to extend the shelves.

First up is rip out the shelves and carpet lining.

Don't know who put the carpet in but was like a jigsaw haha

Thanks Dave - we're well on our way now so it will have to be a job for once we get home again. Definitely going to do it though as the extra storage space will be very useful.

Watching also with great interest as to your pantry improvements.

Hi Dave

Just a word of caution before you get to far into it.

Ifyou deepen the shelves, you will loose the use of the canvas bags on the door of the pantry. They fit into that 'space' that appears to be wasted. I haven't really looked into it, but find that if my bags are to full, the door won't close properly and the pantry will leak.

Watching with interest.

Cheers

Anthony

Have you seen the write up by Comjero on his T handle door lock mod?

Link - https://www.conquerorforum.com/post/door-catch-fail-8187535?highlight=dunn+watson+t-handles&pid=1302291820

Worth a look - you will need to scroll down to read it.

Cheers

G-Day Anthony
Thanks for the heads up but the bags are going as we hardly use them.
Thinking /planing to mount the table on the pantry door. The table is at a local engineering firm to get 100mm trimmed of one end to allow room for new door locks.
Thanks to the great post by comjero I installed the same locks and have always considered putting the same on the pantry
Regards
Dave

I use ours quite a bit(that's how I discovered they leak when over full).

Look forward to seeing the end result and how you deal with the anti-Luce locks. They are a PIA, especially as they rust a look shabby. I have swapped all mine out to stainless Steel (as well as all the over centre catches) so no more worries there.

Keep us posted on the upgrade.

Cheers

Anthony

New door locks installed on pantry door.

After deciding where I wanted the locks had to line up where to cut slots to install striker plates 
inside the pantry.
The striker and spacer I used are from spare bits left over from other mods, they are pop riveted to the inside with a smear of sikaflex.

The end product the pantry is keyed alike with the other doors.

Hey Dave,
That looks really smart if I do say so . Now I`ll have to do mine to match the other doors, could you cut in the striker plates without removing the shelves?? And is it possible to remove and plug the old door pins or are they too hard to get too?? 
The pop out tee handles are the best thing ,easy, simple and they look good.

Cheers Jeff

Jeff . I removed the shelves as I have modified them , Will put pics up shortly. But reckon you should be able too depending on your jigsaw.
As for the pins too hard to get to as they are bolted inside the inner and outer walls but I'm going to cut them back. Just got to make up a template with some 3mm mdf to protect the side first.

Regards Dave
