Lets talk van conversion carpeting

I have had many questions about what the “gray stuff” or “fabric” is on some of my van conversions. Well here is a video of what it is and how I attach it to part of my woodwork. This is the build where this piece of carpet was used: https://youtu.be/LqKyvAv_6II

Awesome Video

Rob Vann says:

Great instructional video but not something I would use in a van or other RV where there are pets.

In which Huntington do u live at Ca or Long Island?

M R says:

Buy a duofast carpet stapler gun, they’re electric. The staples disappear into the carpet so you can’t see them unless you’re really looking for them.

great video thanks

Polymat carpet and 777 glue are perfect for this: https://www.bargainshore.com/Felt-Carpet-Liners_c_47.html

and *wear a respirator!* spray adhesive is some of the most nasty stuff you can breathe.
also, you spray about 4 times the amount necessary, IMO.

Mallory McGuire says:

Are you doing other people’s vans yet? I emailed you and never got a reply.

Roy Vannoy says:

I would like to see how you store your wood stock in the shop. Thanks for your time.

MrMeanderthal says:

staples should be continuous along each folded edge.. 3/8″ crown staples around 1/4″ – 1/2″ inch apart.. the thinner the vinyl or carpet the closer the staples..

Luke Pille says:

Hey…excellent video. You have a real talent! Thank you.

Cameron Garcia says:

Verticle and horizontal surfaces are fine; but can you do a video on how you would cover a Van’s wheel well cover? I think that for some of us who are looking to cover this item, we’d appreciate the information on how to cover a wheel well.

Lee lim says:

Thanks for making the vid great tips

laura j phillips says:

Stuart Horner says:

Could you show the backing board that you said you were adding to cover the edges? Thanks
