    Really not that bad, as far as rust goes. Still, you've done the right thing and piece of mind is worth Its weight in gold.

    Sorry for the delay, haven't had much time to get on here.

    So here is the picture of the floor pan that I couldn't find; painted by the misses.



    Once the floor was painted, we cleaned the sides, and starting insulation.
    We used foil backed bubble wrap and recycled plastic insulation, and made a sandwich. So foil glued to panel, insulation on top, then sealed with another layer of foil and aluminium tape; should keep us nice and toasty.



    This shows the idea.

    Not much was done after that, between work and a new baby I only managed to sort the sliding door out. At the time it was more of a dragging door and this is probably why.



    Had to do this to each bolt.



    Maybe I didn't have to, but I really wanted them off.


    At the beginning of this year I started doing some bits that would make it look nicer, such as carpeting.

    This is what the van is like now





    I really need to tidy up that step into the cab, will probably do that this weekend.

    Yesterday I pulled down the roof lining and started lining the roof with foil backed bubble wrap. That's all I'm going to do for now as there's not enough room for any insulation between the roof and the lining (pictures to come). We'll see how it is during spring as that's when I want to be able to camp by.

    Regarding the floor, I've decided against any under ply insulation after talking to a local, and looking at hundreds of posts on forums.

    The main thing we want to avoid is rot, so we're making sure there is enough airflow under the ply to dry out any condensation, and the insulation will come from vinyl and a carpet we're going to get made that we can leave down or roll up if we have to.

    Cheers!

    We settled on 9mm ply, but we're talking about maybe swapping it out for 12mm or 14mm... Not sure yet
