I continue where I left off in the previous article Van Ceiling Panel Part II. As a reminder, I use an automotive tweed protected against daily wear and UV, very similar in color and texture as the front seats of the van.
Before I can install the ceiling panel, I still have to finish and attach this black foam block above the sliding door, as well as a small cabinet that houses two switches and the gas heater control knob and a top cabinet.
In the process of finishing up the passenger side of the interior, I need to insulate the walls. Before I do that, I pulled the last wiring through the wall cavities.
The wall insulation consists of rigid Poly-Iso, separated about 0.5 inch from the skin of the vehicle with a few dots of spray foam, with the Poly-Iso pressed into it. This void acts, both as a barrier and a way to drain any condensation, without wetting the insulation.
Final part of the Toilet Build. I finished the toilet cabinet and installed the separating toilet.
Some is still missing, such as the drawer front and toilet front panel. Those will be installed at the end of the van build. Another missing part is the connection to the gray water tank; that part of the plumbing will be shown in future videos.
The drawer cabinet is finished and the drawer fronts installed. Now still some sanding and more sanding, followed by a couple of finish coats. Next week I’ll start with the work surface. When it all comes together, it all folds down into a ‘bench seat’ for the desk in my van/RV.
