Default Bought my first T4 and looking for advice on my plan

Hi All,

Just joined the forum as I have recently bought a T4, ex AA 2003 2.5 tdi. I've wanted a van for ages but always sat on the fence, so I've finally taken the plunge and very happy!

I plan to convert the back into a simple camper with room and a mount for my mountain bike. So far I have gutted out the AA stuff, swapped a failed alternator and added the obligatory gearstick extension .

I was hoping you could take a look at some (very crude) images I have done showing how I plan to insulate and quieten the back, if you have any advice or comments on my ideas that would be great. Otherwise I'll order these materials this week and get going.

Hope I've uploaded the images correctly:

Here are links to the materials:

Sound deadening mats for vibration/panel resonance:

Flexible insulation for harder to cover areas:

Celotex insulation for wider open areas:

Other plans are to make a bench which slides into a single and further for a 3/4 bed. A fridge and as much storage where I can.

Cheers for looking!

Hello and welcome on board, seems like your plan is all good to me, I used recycled bottle insulation instead of celotex, not saying there's anything wrong with celotex, plenty of people use it, as they say, each to their own, nice van too
