    Interior
    I know there are loads of threads about insulation and sound deadening but that’s the problem for a new comer to all this - too much information!! We are now trying to find what we need to do to insulate our van before we put the ply lining in. We will be using the van mainly for day/short...
  2. Insulation advice

    T5 Conversions
    I’m about to glue insulation to my walls and ceiling and I noticed that there are some sort of thin insulation/soundproofing pads already stuck to the walls (see pic). From what I’ve read, it’s preferable that the insulation (in my case cork panels) should be snug up against the surface. This...

    General Technical
    Hi folks, I have just bought my first T4 and it is currently completely stripped out in the back. My question is what jobs do you recommend I do before plying the back out.

  4. Condensation!

    Interior
    Morning all. I have done all the insulating and carpet lining now and for the most part the van is quiet and warm and dry, but the rear door is unlined due to it being exposed to the elements past the seal. So if I kip in the van the rear door gets wet with condensation. I am venting through...

    T5 Conversions
    Hi, Just wondering if anyone has used the B&Q recycled plastic insulation? I keep seeing and reading that people have used the 'recycled plastic bottle insulation' version (white). I tried to get my hands on that as it has been recommended for not holding on to moisture etc but could only get...

    The Workshop
    Hi all! I've been a reader for a while, but finally bought my first t4 last weekend.

    Interior
    I visited 'Classic Acoustics' yesterday for a Insulation and Carpeting Install.. I arrived at 8am, and Paul (owner of Classic Acoustics) and his trusty side-kick Chris, set to work on my LWB T5 GP.. All I can say is what a great job they did. The difference in sound is immense (even did my...
