This listing is also missing the 'eyebrow trim' on the cabin top - that's a plus (difficult to keep looking nice) The only other thing I generally don't like is the tiled countertops, but the rest looks pretty nice. You could do a lot worse, Dave...
Yes, the engine location is kind of cool and after seeing how clean Chef's engine is he could use it as a warming cabinet for food waiting to be served! throw in some surplus scraps of some nice quartz counter top and you would be set.
