How is the plasti dip holding up on the door slider? It looks a lot better then the factory silver.
i'm curious too! And how did you go about it... did you brush it on?
Hey all -
Pretty typical start to our build. The only thing I've done a bit different is using Thinsulate strips in the floor, and attaching our awning directly to a roof rack (and not on the van body).
KO2s size 245/75/16 Was tempted to stick with Cooper Discoverer AT/3s but to be honest I wanted a slightly more aggressive look to offset the "retirement home livery vehicle" vibe.
MaxxFan Deluxe 5100
Sound / insulation
CLD tiles @ ~30%, MLV on floor and wheel wells, Thinsulate all over.
L-track in floor, bolting in an OEM seat with OEM rails.
CLD strips in valleys, Thinsulate strips in valleys, 1/2" ply (3 pieces, finished both sides, adhered with silicone caulk), FloorMuffler, MLV, one piece coin mat. Careful observers will note a different order to the layers in an attached image -- was experimenting. Also, while I did not measure with a scientific device, my ears noticed a big difference in noise w/ and w/o the MLV in the floor.
Roof rack + awning
Aluminess "Adventurer" style, Fiamma 45s (attached to rack)
Plastidipped wheels and door slider
Still to come:
- heater install
- benches / bed out of 80/20
- permanent place for the National Luna fridge (which also gets used in our 4Runner)
- wall panels
- very minimal headliner (at 6'3" I'm aiming to keep as much height as possible)
- removable Pit Bull restraint for my Husky 701
- removable MTB QRs
Thanks to everyone for sharing so much good stuff.
Is that Thinsulate in backwards? I thought the backing was supposed to be facing the inside of the van?
