Thanks so much for these informative pics. Is that sunroof standard on the CV model tops?

Seeing all of the rot in the rear floors and the rear side walls I think you have made a very wise decision to strip it for parts.

Use heat to remove the aluminum seat rail tracks. They are stuck down using a polyurethane type adhesive. If you use heat and a scraper they will pop right off.

Not sure what adhesive to use to reattach. I am looking at this too with my CV interior....

Are you going to install the Eberspacher underfloor gas heater to the new Van?

Hey all. Been a while since posting. Havenít had time for any work.

Finally got around to placing the seat rails and testing carpet fit.

I took measurements from old van and lined up rails in new van. Then drilled a couple of holes for locating rails, screwed down and checked carpet fit.

Now to remove, clean and glue in place.

Still have to drill some holes and put in riv-nuts before I can glue carpet.

And also need to do something about the heater core which will be covered by the carpet when itís laid in place.
