I purchased a 1.8sqm pack of laminate flooring from Bunnings.
The planks lock into each other.
I ran the planks width weights over the floor ribs.
I had to cut into the floor matt that extended past the front seats.
On the last plank I had to route a channel for the cable to the starter battery as the channel between the ribs ended.
A strip of aluminium right angle tied the whole thing together. The floor is essentially held in place by the trim that surrounds it.
I needed a way to contain the polyester insulation batts on the ceiling. I see most people installing tongue and groove boards or sheets of plywood. I didn’t see the benefit in this mainly due to the extra weight. I chose to suspend the boards with battens of Tasmanian Blackwood.
I had to cut the Blackwood down to size from 25 x 125mm stock with my Brother’s Festool plunge cut circular saw.
The strips would then hold up sections of calico.
The battens were attached with bolts into threaded inserts with a nylon spacer.
Side panel and trim
I crafted these battens out of Tasmanian Blackwood.
9mm ply was decorated with an old piano book.
The batten pair will be used to hold a shelf while a TV will be mounted on the other.
