Did you find the sticky stuff made a noticeable improvement to noise?
I put down cld tiles then thinsulate. The tiles alone do a great job making the structure more solid, when you rap on the outside it completely changes the sound. The thinsulate added some to the equation but not as drastic as the tiles.

The biggest gains in my van were on the floor and wheel wells. Next beyond that were the doors in the rear, the 60/40 and the rears. Once I quieted that down it was all little gains.

Nice, that is an impressive difference. I guess I will go through the trouble and remove the headliner so I can place sound deadner everywhere.

Off topic questions. At 1:30 in the above video https://youtu.be/ce7WpyzlqTc?t=90

You can see three cables bolted to the van wall. Do you know what those are for? Also behind those cables should be a rectangular vent with a one way flapper. If you get a chance can you check if that is really a one way vent? I'm thinking of putting an exhaust fan there on each side. I can't put anything on the roof.

The 3 cables are ground wires to the chassis for all the lighting in the rear of the van.
There are 3 ground wires on both sides of the van in the same location

I looked. I don't see any vent with a flapper

Thanks for looking.

I got the idea from this thread - cabin air outlet as low vent while camped?

Here is a picture of where the mystery flapper lives. I need to take mine apart and see if I can find it.

Hmm, so maybe it is behind the big black plastic molding on the outside panel?

Yeah some have found pics of the van being built and you can see it then. With your van assembled you will never put eyes or hands on it. If you listen close you can hear it when you close the doors. In my thread is a pic of the passenger door - it also has a one way flapper vent.

My plan is to run a window mount fan on intake and pressurize the cabin thus forcing air out the vent in the rear much the same as when the windows are up and the hvac is cranking.

My plan is to put a high performance computer fan in the wall at each side. They are silent and move a decent amount of air. You can also get a cool controller with thermostat and other useful features. Of course a fantastic fan moves more air but I absolutely don't want anything on the roof.

Ah, ok, I saw several pics of the vent holes from the outside of the van.
So if it is a flap, then the flap lets air from the outside to the inside, but air cannot go inside to the outside.

Interesting

When I get my Maxxair fan power up, I'll close the van up and go back and see if I can feel air coming up from those rear sections behind the wheel wells.
Not sure how low the lowest setting is on my 10 speed Maxxair fan
that's why I got the 10 speed fan that goes both ways
Was hoping to have a really low setting for just pulling a tiny bit of air through the van

The Maxxair fan on low may be able to just pull in enough fresh air through those two vents instead of having a window up front cracked?

But a window cracked up front with a vent shade may still be desirable in order to pull air all the way front the front to the rear of my van

Ok, Now I see those two vents as I looked down inside the panel with a flashlight
Check them out in video #2 here
