Introducing Tahlullah & storage Q.

Hello folks
After endless tire-kicking we picked up a 1976 1300, bright lemon yellow. She is a beauty with, we are told, an axle in immaculate condition. Phew.

We have jumped into our own renos, mostly cosmetic as we've lucked into a working stove and fridge, and no mold (yay!).

Our inaugural query: what kind of storage systems do folks use under their dinette seats? Any and all suggestions welcome.

To do:
- replace water tank
- update converter from 10 to 30 amp.
- replace interior lights with LEDs
- install LED interior lights (over dinette, maybe over back bench)
- seam repair (3M primer on seams; apply tape. Fingers crossed this works. If not we will DAP and paint)
- insert new FANtastic Fan
- to floor or not to floor? (Nice cheap stuff out there, ie HDepot's Allure line, some damaged click flooring at IKEA)

To date:
- cleaning, cleaning and (sigh) more cleaning
- replace cupboard doors and hardware (cutting plywood, sanding, sealing; spray paint matte silver latches etc)
- paint stove and hood (High Heat Tremclad)
- redo curtains (coolest owl fabric ever. If that is possible)
