Finishing off the rear cargo area, adding bulkheads on either side of the cabinet to enclose those areas. I thought about leaving the access portals open but decided to put doors over them.

After the insulation comes the headliner. 1/8" Baltic birch ply, had to cut 6" off the end and off the edge to get it in there.

Insulation installed. 1/2" rigid foam with relief cuts to conform to the roof curve. It's wedged into place, then foil tape where the edges hit the wood. It'll be held into place by the headliner panel.

Screen installed, more wood framing around the windows. I'm having to add another layer of 1x2 to give room for the insulation, plus it gives someplace to attach teh bottom edges of the main headliner panel.

14 x 14 Ventline roof vent. When I was shopping for this, the ones without a fan were going for $35 and the ones with a fan were also going for $35. Sure, sign me up.

Undid the straps and installed the windows this morning. These went in the same way as original; reproduction Hehr gasket for the sides and bottom courtesy Vintage Trailer Supply, putty tape across the top. I'll be running a bead of Sikaflex around them and the roof vent when I do the sealant after work -- I do *not* want these bitches leaking water, and I don't trust the putty tape to hold up long-term.

Strapped down until the panel adhesive sets up. $40 Adventure Camper/Adventurewagen top from Craigslist, weeks of fiberglass repair, sanding and painting. Installing with Evercoat 813 panel adhesive and Sikaflex 221 polyurethane sealant/adhesive instead of the original method of butyl mastic and Eleventy-Billion self-tapping screws.

Something I threw together real quick-like, meant to be hung off the neck (or rearview) with a cord. Maybe something like this can help Sambaistas ID each other at shows & swaps
