File size limit is a joke.

Large lid and small lid.

Almost forgot. I got rid of those spasmatik double roller shades and got a friend to modify some light blocking, thermal drapes I got off Amazon for all the windows.

Nice work thrutraffic!  You have a lot of imagination and talent.  I cannot think of the things you did, let alone, do them!

Great Job!

Interesting!

I once looked into the Ford Econoline E150/E250/E350 cargo van OEM insulated rubber cab floor covering, but had no luck finding a part number to order from a dealer.  I always thought that item would provide excellent insulation to address the hot floor and also offer a perfect fit and good finish for the front cab to eliminate soiled carpets that insulate very poorly.

If anyone knows the part number for that rubber insulated OEM floor covering, please share it.

Looks like the factory mold to me, even comes with jute padding to install.

I just installed this product a few months ago. The good news is that it looks good and the extra heat and sound insulation should increase driving comfort. The bad news is that the pattern wasn't close to the factory pattern. Took lots and lots of trimming but luckily it wasn't too short so no gaps anywhere.

Iím just following in VOLKEMONĎs shoes really.  He did his cab and living area in floating and a nice garage mat flooring in the cab. I got the same sound insulation he used and I think it may decrease my fuel mileage cause itís heeeaaaavvvvy!
