This was the only job I managed to get done today, it looks and will perform much better than the old foam mess.

I used this in our loft conversion at home, cracking stuff but expensive!
I insulated my old panel van with it, the difference was night and day you couldn't hear the radio or have a conversation with out shouting over the diesel racket.
Then it was almost like a modern quiet car, except far cooler!

If I was doing a proper job of this thread I would have shown the panels made and the edges done with the foil tape

I was pointing out the tape to Keith :idea

I've done behind all the side panels and inside the slider and tailgate. It's a bit thick for under the floor as I used the 19 layer stuff.
I'm sure I had a roll and a half left and it has done my camper the syncro and my old panel van which had it full length behind the roof lining sheet as well as all the panels and doors, one roll will be more than enough for one van

Nowt much happened for a few weeks, the van never made it to busfest unfortunately due to too many small jobs that I would rather was done before I took it a 650 mile round trip to find out the it wasn't ready plus I still only had about 150 miles on the engine since fitted and didn't fancy tuning it in on the way there. First ever busfest tho and I thoroughly enjoyed it despite drinking too much whisky on the Friday and spending most of Saturday in the van.
Over the past two weeks I've got through a load of the jobs and got it pretty much done.
Just been out in it tonight and put another 60 odd miles on it.
It drives spot on I'm well chuffed with it.
I got the roof bars and tent on for a trial fit and see how it works, I think it is going to take a bit of practice and patience.ImageImageImage
