I'm converting an S-10 and am getting into the heater part... your pictures are extremely helpful, thanks. How did you solve the heater next to plastic problem? I'm only going to use 1 heater coil, pretty warm up here even in the winter time, mainly for defrosting use. Do you plan to hook up the AC? Are there any things that you would have done differently? Are you using a DC/AC converter or hooking the heaters directly to your dc?
Lots o questions.
