I'm going to ordering some flashband and 25mm Kingspan Insulation ( I live out in the sticks with nowhere local to buy A: )

How much flashband should I be getting to line the side panels and wheel arches?

How many panels of Kingspan will I need, can you use that stuff behind the roof lining?

Thanks T:

For a short wheel base, I used just over half a sheet of 50mm kingspan and about the same of the 25mm. I used silver foil bubble wrap above the headlining as it would be a squeeze to get kingspan in there unless you are plylining the roof with batons I reckon.

As for flashband, I think I used about 4 or 5 rolls in total, a couple of slim ones, and the rest of the wider stuff. That did both wheel arches completely, and a nice couple of strips on all the other panels and roof sections.. T:

I bought / used:

1x50mmm xtratherm
1x25mm xtratherm (not quite finshed)
2x rolls thermal bubble wrap 15m (not finished yet)
3 x rolls 100mm flash (not quite finished)
1 x roll 500mm flash band (nearlly finished)
2 x rolls aluminium foil tape (do all edges of thermal wrap)
1 x can spray glue
2 x roll eco wool for gaps (85% recycled bottles) - used 1 and 1/2rolls
and some gaffa tape

quite a bit, but has done everything, filled all the gaps, covered all the holes, panels, roof and tailgate. still have a bit left
