The insulation of the driver’s cab

Well, we bought the car. That doesn’t mean that we had any idea how and with what the vehicle should be built. Ok, a little bit of craftsmanship I can say. This has already ensured that perspiration will not be a permanent condition. The Internet also offers a wealth of information about other people’s materials and experiences. So we have started to look into the possibilities of insulation of an expedition vehicle.

Insulation mats for the driver’s cab

We quickly found insulation mats in our Internet research. But just to get started and think “If the mats are cut and laid, it will fit” doesn’t work. Why? It is  important to note that in addition to heat and cold insulation, sound and vibration insulation must also be provided.

So we have bought rubber mats in addition to the insulating mats. After cutting the mats and rubber mats to size, we glued both materials together to form an approximately 15mm thick surface.
