Any tips for carpeting and boxing the front and rear sections in its a side opening fitted on a lwb t4
Made it in 3 sections as I didn't want it in the Van all the time(18mm quite heavy)..2x24"long and 1x21"long covered in carpet..lift smallest 1 up(at back) to access by climbing on R&R T:...still trying to get photos uploaded:* and will post when(if) it happenshow did you make the bed ?, then access it ?
I have managed to upload some photos at last and you may be interested in the results of how I have managed to finish it off...just need to get some curtains for the roof now..T:Hi,
I have seen the pics of your roof. I also have a lwb t4 and have been looking at the West Dubs side elevating roof, can you recommend. Have you managed to get yours carpeted and a bed in it yet?T:
Thanks Jo...took my time and thought about what I wanted..Stew at Westdubs puts in strenghners which need covering and the edges of the headlining have to be tidied up, but the stretchy carpet is easy to work with as you can pull it about a lot..really satisfying to do all the work myself on the Van...of course, I don't know how handy you are but give it a go is my advice, and if you get stuck there's always myself and the Forum to askT: Just noticed you are only over Newquay..if you need a look let me know, i'm over there now and again..That's liking really good T:
Just got my van back, now have finance for roof, scared
Did you have lots of work to do when you got it back?
Carpeting looks good, but looks like you need a bit more tension in your Canvas...This is mine, it has 6"wide strips of 6mm ply, rivetted to aluminium strip folded into a 'C' section and then carpeted, this ends up as a J section that overlaps on top of the original steel roof, covers the cut edge and then covers inside the headliner to where the original roof panels were. Its held in with self tappers, I wanted it to be easily removable to run wires in the future. I dont have aroof bed fitted.
At 2metres wide I got 4metres of the 4way stretchy carpet..worked out I had some left over, but good just in case you make any mistakes...make sure you get good quality spray glue(high temperature)...post pics, and good luck T:Hi all
Had roof fitted by stu yesterday. Quality job for the money. Gonna have a crack at carpeting the frame and bed boards this weekend, but unsure how much carpet to buy ????
Any pointers would be appreciated
