Im glad your getting to ceiling insulation, Ive been trying different things but it all comes falling down in the summer time. Trying to find an adhesive that is strong enough to hold in the hot and cold but wont melt foam insulation has been a tough task. Looks like your using foil backed insulation instead of foam, seems like a good idea cause i was getting squeeks with the foam. Do you have any more info on the name or company that makes the foil backed?
And never thought to use contact cement, I was just looking in the spray adhesive isle.
Thanks for all the great ideas, prolly wouldnt have tried this stuff on my own

The stuff I've used on the ceiling is kind of a "foil wrapped insulation".. it kind of looks like recycled denim.



The guys I bought it from call it "Heat Wave Pro" but in reality they are just re marketing someone else's product.

It came in is "manufacturer's packaging" and it had a name on it (Thermo something?)
I'll try and remember to snap a photo of it for you when I'm out in the shop later today.

During my recent fuel pump replacement adventure I had to cut a good-sized hole through the bottom of the Astro van to access the pump. Locating the pump required cutting through the carpeting in a few spots.
The hole is patched and now I need to replace the carpet. The van has almost 194,000 miles on it and I'm not inclined to spend a lot of money on this. I also camp in the van, a lot, and appreciate the sound dampening and warmth of the padded carpet that comes from the factory.
Help me come up with a creative solution for replacement carpet that doesn't cost a ton of money.

What happened to the pieces that you cut out? Could you just glue them back in?

Not to promote thread jacking... look at CL for carpet in your area.

The carpet is one thing, but some kind of backing bonded to it for warmth and sound dampening is another.

It doesn't have to be bonded, layers makes the difference in insulation. Refletix, padding then carpet would most likely be good for all conditions.

FWIW.. You wouldn't want reflectex under you - in crinkles and crushes out eliminating the insulation value as it loses it's air pockets.

That's my thought. Any insulation would need to be crush-proof.
