When I’m hungry I want food now! Not in 3 minutes after I’ve set up my fold out table and dug through my tucker box to locate all my utensils… so I’ve built a rear door table on my Defender to act as my instant kitchen while travelling. I started off taking measurements of the rear door and my old crumbling vinyl covered door card which produced this..
I sent these plans off to my local aluminium fabricator and for only $99 had two sheets cut to size. I used 2.5mm aluminium flat sheet for the door backing and 3mm for the fold down table. I sent them off to the local powder coaters then began installation.
For about an extra $50 I bought 3 s/s hinges, tek screws, bolts and a latch to finish off the install. Some stainless steel wire was used to hold the table level. I had 2 ex-army pouches lying around which I screwed on to the door adding large washers so the material could not tear around the tek screws. This keeps everything I need to cook up a quick meal.
I installed a strap to store the gas stove close by. A rear door table is a simple great easy to do modification.
