Cheers I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. And yeah both the recycled bottle insulation and the bubble insulation are easy to work with. You can tear the bottle insulation with your hands and cut the bubble insulation with scissors. There's just a few awkward places in the van that make it slightly more difficult.

So it's been a while since I've posted but I've been collecting a few new parts.

I wanted to get rid of the horrible arch gap but couldn't go too low because of the side bars so I ended up going for H&R Springs & Darkside rear lowering kit. It now sits really nicely, not what you would call 'Stanced' but looks right. I'll take more pics when I get chance. I thought the front springs would make for a bit of a harsher ride, however I'm pleasantly surprised. It drives way smoother than before especially over small bumps.

My exhaust was on it's way out so I decided to replace it with something a little nicer. I went for a Milltek Non Res DPF Back with discreet tip so it's not on show. It's not really any louder than stock, it just has a bit more of a burble / raw sound than before.

Looks really nice mate! I’m in the process of sorting out my reflex silver caddy. I’m in Plymouth too - and Mutley based!

Just a quick update, I thought I would upload a few pics now the van has settled after lowering. I've also included a before picture which shows how daft the looked. It's not massively obvious from the pictures but the front splitter and side bars sit pretty low to the ground. I'm glad I didn't go any lower because I would be scraping everything.

Great work - it’s looking awesome. I wonder if the old builder who put 7 years of cement dust would recognise it now lol
