Started the flash banding today. Proper hard work on your knees. Took 8 rolls double what I first brought. Used the recycled bottles insulation (2 rolls). And gaffer tape. Silver bubble wrap not to bad to fit. Goto flash band arches and the rest of my floor. Fetched 4mm ply for the panels. Guna cut them tmoro. I need to order some of them clips to hold the panels on from eBay. But not sure what they called. (Help) Been and ordered my carpet 10 meters. Hopefully enough. Be ea Thursday. If get chance in the week might have look at doing my led lights. I'll crack on tmoro first if my knees feel better.
Helle there,
You say you used 8 rolls of flashband, which width was that? 10mm? I want to know so I can buy some myself. Don't want to come home with way to much. Did you flash band the roof and floor as well?

And what a shame :eek:



What happened? I hope no one got hurt?

Hi rob. My misses was pulling out of a junction and there was a woman indicating to pull into the junction so she edged out and the car ran into the side of her. Wrote it of. Gutted. She had 2 black eyes big lump on the head and sore shoulder. She fine now tho. I brought 9" I think. 8 rolls. I did the ceiling floor roof and the cab roof. Then recycled bottle insulation. Then silver heat stuff look like bubble wrap lol. Then stretch carpet. Easy mate. Goto do this 1 now lol

Good to hear nothing too bad happened.
And building a van looks like good fun too (still haven't begun so can't tell for myself).

Thanks for the usefull tips, this plastic bottle insulation and bubble wrap seems like good stuff. I need to take a look around here in Belgium to see if I can find these materials (or something similar).
