Insulating The Van Part 9 – Cargo Area Reflectix

We have officially moved to freezer status.  At least, that’s how it looks from the inside.  Today, we finally get around to lining the walls and ceiling with reflectix.  This was put off for so long because we’ve been living in the van and to get all this done, we have to completely empty it, including taking the sofa bed out.

We chose to start from the bottom and work our way up, so we got some funky pieces from working around the wheel wells and struts.  We used the same 3M High Strength 90 glue we used on the pink insulation, holding the reflectix up and trimming as we go, then spraying the glue on both surfaces and sticking them together.  Lastly, foil tape on the seams.

Insulating The Van Part 8 – Front Cab Floor

We finished up the front ceiling area, so lets move on to the front floor.  It’s fairly straight forward, just a bit of work.  So, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.

First up, remove the front seats.

Insulating The Van Part 7 – Front Cab Ceiling

Okay, it’s finally time we stop neglecting the front cab area and insulate it.  This time, we tackle the ceiling, which will get sound deadener and reflectix.  Unfortunately, there is not enough space between the metal van skin and the headliner for any pink foam board insulation.
