While im in a 'helping Pete' mode, this is what I used.....

http://www.xtremeplace.com/yabbse/index ... c=288203.0

I happened to have some that I 'salvaged' from a skip....... :lol:

It is used in speaker cabinets as well, and works brilliantly. Maybe some upholstery stuffing? Its a cotton felt, and you can get it way cheaper than my link......it just had a nice photo of the stuff!

I just scrunched it up, and pushed it into any cavity that was showing.....mine has no bulkhead and im impressed with how quiet it is. And its warm enough not to freeze to death in Heff's garden! :lol:

We were freezing mate. I’d like to fully insulate and carpet mine, but because I use mine for carrying camping gear/drums/mountain bikes I can’t justify it.
Better get thermals for September

I’ve bought a bit more super liner and loft insulation today. This will be enough to do the the roof of the cab, doors and 1 of the sliding doors. Whilst I’ve got my A pillar trims off (God, please help me when I re fit them) and headliner down. I’m going to fit a dash cam in. I’ve fancied one of these for a while, and with all the nutters on the road, they’re a damn good idea!!

Today I’ve ordered a dash cam and hard wire kit. I’ll be fitting this when I’ve got my headliner down to silent coat the cab roof.
Tomorrow’s plan is (after work, and weather permitting) soundproof the front doors and connect my illuminated door lights up. I’ll also be changing the levers for alloy ones. Thanks to Stedlocks and Sean1066
