I made my own (well had a mate do them) and the difference is unreal, cab is like a sauna and no rattles from the back

at the price he is asking it must be worth a punt

I've done exactly the same as Jimc and as he's mentioned it makes loads of difference and well worth doing, only difference is ive removed the plastic mesh as well.

Yep, they were the first thing I fitted to my van when I got it, carpeted them so they look a bit less ugly, work a treat at keeping noise down, dust out and heat in :D

I thought about taking the mesh out but couldn't be bothered, i like the idea of carpet in the back but then i thought i would have to hoover it so this was the easier option for quietness :D and cost me 2 quid for the draft excluder

Ordered some of these last night. I'll probably carpet them to make a nicer finish.
Need to order some carpeting stuff anyway to smarten up the rear ply lining so this will get done at the same time :)
