I've been moving forward with some build items. For a while I was waiting to purchase my batteries, wiring, separator (ACR), etc. but the funds aren't there right now. I moved on to installing the final flooring and I have a plan to install the battery wiring through the floor after I've got my final plywood and flooring material installed.
I have also removed all the panels in the headliner area and installed reflectix throughout. My plan is to install two layers of reflectix and also some unbacked insulation in the areas of the roof/headliner that will have deadspace.
I purchased a 6' x 12' piece of Loncoin to put over my plywood flooring. The specific type is called Lonpoint Moonwalk. I looked at several different types of flooring including what is available locally at Lowes, etc. I almost went with a cheaper garage vinyl type flooring available for about $200 from Home Depot. In the end the wife and I wanted to add some color to the van so we chose the Lonpoint in primary red. The van is sea of gray so we thought it would be fun to mix it up. We plan to add some wood stained cabinets and some other fabric colors/patterns on the wall panels and headliner. Here are some photos of where I'm at now. I plan to re-install the plywood flooring once I have all the holes sealed up, etc. I'm excited to get the lonpoint installed, put the seat back in and reinstall the bed for a few upcoming trips.
The Moonwalk has rough raised coins, somewhat smaller coins that other Loncoin products. It comes in primary yellow, blue and red as well as assortment grays, tans, etc. With shipping to TN, 1/2 gal of epoxy and a trowel I paid right at $450 for the flooring. Quite the expensive purchase when other lesser quality products could have done the trick. However, you only do this once, ever, so that was my selling point. And the red color was a big driver as well.
I ordered the epoxy form Lonseal. More than I need but wanted to hit the easy button.
I patched the existing seat holes with RTV Silicone with gorilla tape on top. Not the best way to do it I'm sure but should be fine over the life of the van to seal out water and help reduce road noise through the holes. If I has a welder I probably would have just welded over the holes but I don't and I didn't feel like paying someone to do that.
This is one of the threads welded in for my seat install. This was the first time I had personally seen the welds as the flooring and seat were installed over top when I got it back from the fabricator. Continually impressed with the work. The bench seat and mounts unbolted with ease, none of it was forced together, etc. Hopefully it goes back in as easy as it came out.
You can see the reflectix up top and all the patch locations on the floor.
