You can also get these that are up to 107" long.

I like the pin gauges but I have only seen them up to 12" so if you want to do the whole wall at once you need the long ones the woodworking guys use.

+1 - was just about to post pics of contour gauge - template your radiuses, router quality ply with staggered length parallels then bridge, screw and glue. Lots of labor but geek worthy result. If confusion, blame authors time zone.

This is a lot more difficult than it should be...





curves suck.


My delusions of perfect, curved, inset, seamless window sills are quickly receding.
I think I might cheat and do the equivalent of "crown molding" to make it easier (i.e. hide imperfections.)

2 minutes into this video they demonstrate how the computer pulses the brakes when you are stuck (related to what we were talking about)

If you haven't seen it.. after that they do an ASR demo.. pretty cool:

I'm convinced you posted that video so YT would post up this suggested video.

The Mrs. and I got a few hours in on insulating today..



The final layout will be:
van skin - d-amplifier - MLV soundbarrier - recycled denim - reflectex (air sealed for vapor barrier) - internal wooden wall - closed cell foam - interweave fabric



fully insulated the "pocket" where the door latch goes - because it it right by our heads when sleeping I took extra time to insulate and seal it as well as possible:





The outer layer of reflectex is being sealed:



The ceiling is generally tricky to insulate - and some of the most important insulation of all (keeping the heat out in the sumemr). With the ceiling I bought this stuff that is a pre-laminated sheet/thermal barrier


which then gets contact cemented to the ceiling:


...and then reflectexed-bonded down to the wall's seal.


I'll then spray "expandable foam" into the spars themselves.

I think I'll also line the back side of each ceiling panel with reflectex as well so there is a double layer of insulation in the ceiling with an airpocket between.

Still a long ways to go.. including disassembling each door and stuffing it with insulation.

This is definitely going to make the camping at the Elephant Ride this year (in 2 weeks) a lot warmer!
Last year it was something like -15 degrees overnight and the Espar ran full tilt all night.

22 deg. Heat set to 72. Fan speed as low as it'll go and it's hot in here. Woot!

Those long extended fan mounting screws.... have you and Tweety been able to avoid hitting your heads on those?

The are higher than the spar.. when the ceiling goes in there is a fan shroud that then goes over the ceiling and all of that disappears.
