Hi folks, I am looking for some help.
Looking for pics how and where Mercedes located the the pivot point of the radio box.
I found this picture on the web..jpg

It looks like that the cross member rests on top of a normal bed support? Are these the battery cable I see on the right in the picture?
This box looks like it is missing the floor panels? The floor support seems to be bowed, at least not straight... Is the floor in the box curved?
Is this the front mount directly behind the cab?
Is there another one like this on the end of the frame?

Anybody a link to better pictures or willing to make pictures ?
Anybody has these parts laying around?

Many Thanks.

Johan
Any pictures of the hardpoint connection of the box to the frame?

Oh sorry somone elses bed frame....i think the problem you will run into putting a school bus body on is the twisting of the frame....the cab has a three point connection...the bed frame also....they have to flex separately.....the hard connection beween the two i dont think will work....im not an engineer....but knowing how the unimog frame twists and the cab and bed three point mount is....i cant see a hard connection between them together.....
