Carpet for the rear advice.

Post by DanHughes » Tue Mar 12, 2019 9:05 am

Hi all, Just ordered some carpet and led light strips for the rear of the van. It's already all ply lined but i'm just wondering if anyone could give me any advice when it comes to carpeting (i'm all good with the electrics) I have never carpeted as of yet though, currently building a camper van Peugeot boxer that is ready to be carpeted soon as well so any tips may come in handy. Going to do the Caddy first for a little practice :D I have oredered the correct van/stretch carpet. Thanks in advance :)

Cheers mate, I need to take the ply out to sound deaden anyway. So you carpet the ply while it was still out the van before putting it back in? I was going to go over some metal panels so never really thought of that, suppose I could cut some carpet separate to go over them once I have put the ply back in :D I'm not doing the floor which is a bonus because it's got some hard proof foam matting down for the pooches! No point carpeting it, will just get wrecked :lol:
