I've just removed the interior panel on the rear door of my Alto to give access to the fixing nuts for a new bicycle rack.

I'd be very interested to know what good Swift think that the itwo pathetic bits of insulation are?

I don't know why, but I just find that very funny.

While Swift are perhaps known as one of the more "leisurely/slovenly" builders, that is surely taking the proverbial pi$$

Looks like they've fitted it upside down to me :ROFLMAO:

But... it does make you wonder why they even bother.

Insulation

Hi, Martin I think that what you have in your van is not insulation but its there to deaden any vibration in the panels as you tootle along :Smile:If I had a van like yours I would get some metallic faced hi density foamed panels and cut it to size and push into all the spaces I could reach :thumb:

It would be pretty hard to cut kingspan/celotex into those doors.Would be a good idea maybe to fill with mineral roll though

I was similarly disappointed when I removed the inside panel from the sliding door on my Autocruise Jazz, and discovered there was no insulation whatsoever.

It took me 3 months to convert my van and the insulation took me all of the 1st month, I used sheep's wool insulation in the doors along with 25mm Kingspan It makes you wonder what they have used elsewhere such as in the ceiling and floor.
