    First time carpeting.

    In the heat of Tuesday, I finally grabbed the adhesive and carpet and went for it. 2 stone lighter at the end of the day, but a result. I then did the other side with the sliding door on Thursday. I found that side more difficult, but it’s not that hard folks - have a go !

    Evening all, I'm looking to carpet my van tomorrow. Just taping the holes up and wondered if any are necessary for the slam vents? Or when people ply line do they add holes like the factory pannels to allow the air to pass? Cheers, Kev
