Having driven vans for years and owned a fair few.The bulkhead makes all the difference.The other day was using a new VW caddy with no bulkhead what a racket.Made worse with crap roads but that’s not going to change in this country. 😀
Flashband is what a lot of the t4 owners use. I did my wheel arches in it, and put the odd patch in the lower panels to try and stop the drumming/resonance noise. I can’t really comment on how much the Flashband helped on its own as I insulated and ply/carpet lined at the same time….
Strips of flashband stuck to the panels to stop the resonating. You can prolly get it ply lined cheap enough. Or spray glue some cheapo camping mats to the sides which will also work… Cut them to shape the contours of the panels.
got myself a berlingo van. not for anything else than slinging the bikes in the back of. but by heck it is so bloody noisy,
it has no bulkhead fitted, dont really want one fitting.
it is not ply lined either, which again, i am not too fussed about.
got a load of spare wool carpet and underlay on hand. thought 2 layers of underlay and a carpet on the top.
would doing the same to the side eliminate much more noise?
Cheap rockwool and plywood lining kit off ebay, a heavy lined curtain behind the cab. The curtain will hide a surprising amount of banging and squeaking in the back and it means the cab heater is much more effective.
