Looking at creating a removable internal shelf so the space above can be kept separate and clutter free/clean - exploring ideas but not worked it out fully yet
I donít think the 6mm acrylic would be a good choice - itíll be way too flimsy unless you went up to 15mm or so and then itíll be expensive and heavy.
Itís also not the easiest material to work with; it likes to crack when you drill it.
Can you not fibreglass some little battens in along the walls of the seat that the shelf could sit on? Then you could lift it out to access underneath and it would be much stronger.
It might also be worth making the shelf in two halfís. That way you only have to half empty it to refill the oil and would give you a bit more space above the batteries (which you will never need to access).
Finally, maybe it would be worth having the oil tank right at the top? That would you wouldnít have to lift anything out to get to it to top it up (presumably a relatively frequent activity?)
