Hello everyone. My name is Lee and I am new to VW. I have just bought T6 2017 LWB and was hoping you could help me.
The van is currently simple kombi with no carpeting and any additional nice stuff, I would like to take it on as a project.
I would like to do sound deadening, thermal isolation...
My van is due to be converted in about a week by the Bristol Camper Company. I was suprised to learn last time we spoke that they fit thermal fleece but no sound deadening. Not in the side panels, not in the floor, none.
They say they used to do so years ago and couldn’t tell the difference...
After reading a lot of threads on here, I was under the impression that at least some dodo and/or silent coat was standard, then dacron or similar insulation, then ply and carpet lining.
On asking my converter (not placed official order yet) what they were going to use, I was given the...
So I see Kiravans and other retailers with an online presence ar punting a sound deadening layer then an adhesive insulator followed by a lofting layer. Surely there is little value to all this when there is so much glass to let the cold through? And as for dodo mat duo for the floor. IS it...
Does anyone know of a UK supplier of 3M Thinsulate (TM) SM600L?
Looking to use it in my T6 in conjunction with Dodo Dead Mat Hex Sound Deadening:
Has anyone had any experience with applying a reflective surface to the inside face of the ply lining?
TL;DR : Questions to those who lined their van to minimise road noise - was it worth it? does it make a huge difference? Is noise and comfort really that terrible in an unlined van?
Longer version :
Not long started down the road of looking into getting a camper. After a month or...
I was about to buy Dodo Thermo Van liner, only to find a mass shortage. I cant find a roll anywhere.
So has anyone used the 'Dado Thermo liner SE' ? I thought this would be identical to the Van liner, just in sheets. But its only 6mm not 7mm?
Does anyone have any thoughts, or...
Evening All, can you give me an honest opinion on the following please;
I silent coated & applied dodo thermo SE & Thermo fleeced (the thinner stuff) the van roof as we’re going tin top.
I offered up the panel in the process of marking out for the lights.
It appeared I couldn’t get the panel to...
Unopened roll of Thermo liner extreme, selling as it’s a bit too thick for what we want on the floor (but perfect for the walls).
collect from Swindon, or I might be able to meet with it (subject to social distancing, etc). I’m travelling to ringwood tomorrow.
(it’s £80 from deadening.co.uk)
Just in the process of insulating, and was wondering if dynamat tape is really worth the extra cost over normal aluminium tape (which we already have a few rolls of). We are using dodomat extreme and 2mm silentcoat.
Hi everyone, I’ve just bought this van for transporting ebikes to customers and also weekend trips with my kids and our bikes. Possibly will convert to a kombi. Might take out the bulk head and put the seats on turntables if that’s something that can be done and also keep the van quiet on the...
Just a quick one, how much space is there between the front cab headling and roof?
I've silent coated so far but wondering if there is enough of a gap to put either dodo mate or thermal liner over the silent coat?
Not sure if any has taken this one on and looking for advice.
We bought a newly converted SWB T6 last year and I think I want to take out the entire interior and retro fit silent coat and proper insulation. I took off the passenger side back panel and it looks like we just have wool type...
Hello all, just started sound deadening my T6 and wondering which insulation is adequate enough to use before carpet lining. Deadening used is 4mm silent coat. Sooo foam (and what thickness) or the recycled plastic roll that b&q sell?
Looking for some help and advice.
Need to get an Insulated screen for the T6, primarily to stop condensation. After reading lots of posts seem to have narrowed it down to the following:
Minster seem cheapest and they all seem to get excellent reviews.
