Sweeties Cupcake Van

Sweeties Gourmet Treats needed a mobile confectionary dispersion system.  We just call this a cupcake van.  With a new Nissan NV we set about adding a serving window, RV sized air conditioner and a monster Kinetik based power system to keep everything running on location.
The van came to us freshly wrapped but with a little too much sheet metal.

Once the sheet metal was removed a new service window was installed. The window has double locking latches and two gas shocks. Here Brandon is testing the serving window by soliciting punches.

Next we moved on to the power system. To keep the air conditioner and various other electron consuming devices running we needed 4 Kinetik KHC-2400 batteries. Each battery weighs 69 lbs. so we decided to fabricate a nice little battery rack. To do this we started by letting some sparks out of the steel. We then put some sparks back in.
Cutting some steel
Welding Battery Rack
After the pieces of steel were joined together we ended up with a rack that can handle some weight. Each shelf was tested up to 200 lbs. using our extremely scientific test where one of our technicians jumps up and down on it. We cleaned up the rack, primed and painted it a nice black.

Now that the rack is done it was time to install and wire up everything. The 4 Kinetik KHC-2400 batteries went in without a hitch. We ran 2 1/0 awg power cables from the added 260 amp alternator that we added to the van to the batteries. We also added a ctek multi 25000 to keep the batteries charged and maintained. And last but not least the Wagan 8000 watt inverter.

Keep an eye out for the Sweeties Gourmet Treats van. Wherever they are the van will be chilled and have plenty of power.
A special thanks to our friends at Kinetik tech support for the help in designing a power system worthy of our friends at Sweeties.
