Well started on the interior a couple weeks ago after taking a "break" from working on the van from last winter until recently. Short history is the van was purchased new in 1991 and "modified" for use as a paddy wagon, I bought it a couple years ago. Attached photos will show how the inside cargo looked when purchased and how it looks today after I removed the "containment" system that was installed. . Did all the mechanical work first then it went into the body & paint shop for a couple months last fall, got it back completed re-installing all the outside trim & bumpers, lights, grill, etc.... So I painted the floor with POR 15 then installed the Dynamat then the 3/4" plywood over that to give me a flat floor to be able to move my stool around for installing the Dynamat on the ceiling & walls. Installing Dynamat in the doors is next along with the wheel well humps. Plan is to use 1/8" Luan cut for each panel section on the walls & ceiling that will be covered in vinyl to make it easier to install. The side wall ribs are only 1 1/8" wide so I am going to attached a 1x2 piece of pine to one side of each wall rib to give me a good fastening strip on each side of the side ribs (don't know how else to explain it). Luan will also be used for the panels on the cargo area side and rear doors. Will add replies with more photos as I get things done.
UPDATE: 3-13-2024; Couple more photos of test fitted ceiling & wall paneling. Ready to be removed and covered with the vinyl.

I do have most of the Luan panels cut and installed. Interior guy is coming out this next week to double check the ones I have done and to finish curving and installing the rear corner pieces. Once all in place they will all marked, removed and he will take them to his shop and apply the vinyl covering, once that is dome we will install them all.....gettin' there....slowly.... Have not taken any photos of this yet...been too cold (sub zero) for the past week to do anything but will get back to it this next week when it warms back up...LOL...will also take photos....

thanks

Interior work is tedious, know the feeling on the cold and getting work done on one of mine. Looking forward to seeing progress..
