Damn, seeing that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. It almost makes me want to tear out my interior and start over.

My big fat interior (re)build

I know, right! Super cozy....but hold that thought at least until after Baja, I can tell you from recent experience-tear down, prep and pre build stuff took a lot longer than I had anticipated! And lots of 8 hr days!

Might have to start putting in some weekend time to catch up, itís kind of a pita, as I have a 45min+ daily drive each way to get to/from where the rig is up in Loveland. But Iíve got myself my own huge heated garage space up there across from AVC I was able to rent for the month. Good thing, itís been chilly and rain/snow all this week.

My big fat interior (re)build

Moving on to getting the columns wrapped...It seems that sometimes before I can get to items on my list of things to do requires 10 steps before I can even think about getting that item done, yesterday was one of those days!
I first had to sort some electrical stuff, the Ford wiring harness, moving speaker wires, and tucking as many things in to reduce bulk.
I then stuffed the rear column cavities with insulation and covered the holes with Noico to avoid having visible sunken holes when Iím done.
Next was wrapping the columns with foam for some cushioning behind the fabric. I doubled up the foam to build up around the Ford wire harness so it wasnít a big hump and covered the seam with foil tape to smooth it out a bit before fabric went on.
The extra fabric on the wall side will get tucked behind the fabric wrapped wall panels, the extra along the door seal gets trimmed along the pinch seam.

My goal for this week is to get the floor and the wall panels in, then things will be able to move forward much quicker.
We are flipping the locations of the fridge and potty to be able to fit the larger TruckFridge in and still be able to recline the drivers seat. I realized I had to do something about the fuel filler hump that stuck out quite a bit right where the new fridge was supposed to go. You can see it here if you zoom in.....

I used my multi-tool to make the cut, made a template before making the final, gave it a coat of paint, made some cuts along the top, screwed it in and sealed it with some roof sealant, gained about 2-1/2Ē

My big fat interior (re)build

For the floor, I decided to go with Bedrug vantred version for a layer under the new ply. It comes pre-cut, it contours the floor ribs and is available for most vans. I knew I didnít want something that would hold moisture so this fit the bill. It also adds another layer of soundproofing and heat shielding. The added bonus was that I was able to use it as a template for the ply.
I first laid some strips of Noico in the valleys for added noise reduction. You can never have enough in a diesel! You can see the cut I made to the fuel filler here too

Hereís the ply sitting on top of the sheet vinyl Iím using for the floor. I used 1/2Ē birch ply for added strength. I was able to use just 2 sheets, 3 pieces. Nice!
