yeah there's a few options, is that stuff self adesive?

Unfortunatley its not. I think its best to stick it up there and get the ply up straight away - unlike me. The tape has failed in the central section due to moisture and temparature changes so I'll have to do that bit again Sad

It holds itself in place pretty well on the smaller side panels though.

You could always get some spray adhesive , as used by us carpet fitters , to keep it from falling down untill you put Ply / haedliner up ??? Smile

Some very usefull info there,,, would be interested to know if its important to treat the paneling against moisture if insulation is used,,, dont really want to trap moisture against the underside of the roof !
My van isnt here yet, but its as far as Holland & is ex California, in all the pics I can see that the interior seems to be lined with tinfoil,,, apparently this is to keep the heat out in the hot climate.

Eventually got all the new seals today... as it was such a nice day i thought i'd start strippping the old ones out outside. it's not often you can work in a T-shirt outside in Febuary! pretty much all the old seals have turned to a what looks more like burnt plastic or charcoal and certainly wont keep a lot of rain out. the outer seals in the 6 popouts took over 3 hours to remove!



Here's a whole lot of new seals...











lots of penatratring oil, flat jaw vise grips and some gentle working get the popout hunges nice and free again...

Tim is finishing the seals, making sure all the controls work, fitting a second battery and a CD player, blowing some paint over the new rear arches.....plus doing lots of stuff that I have no idea about but he does.....then, after Tim's dad has done a fantastic job with the headliner and so on, we need to sort out other interior bits and pieces......he will be ready before Vegas.....

Now then, Superfly was a 70's song from the movie Shaft (?) starring I can't remember who, Richard Rowntree maybe....but it had an album of music from it, or maybe it came from the movie Car Wash....or was there a movie called Superfly........and Superflyguy is a more recent chart single.....by I don't know who because I have zero memory......

Yesterday i fitted the belly pans...

When factory fitted they were welded on but i decided to screw them on because i wanted to get a good soaking of ankorwax all over the underside of the floor and around all the outriggers, cross members etc. there is no way to do that and know you have got it everywhere if you weld the pans on first and the spray the wax through holes. obviously you cant weld the pans son once ankor wax is applied because it's highly flamable. also this way they can be removed at a later date to apply more wax if required...

Are they the same belly pans that came with sunroof or pop top buses?
I take it the advantage is to keep road crap off the chassis.
Did they make them for bays or was it just splits?

Sorry for all the questions Rolling Eyes
