You are fortunate to have the ability in your panel truck to just glue the edges right to the truck body and then attach panels that will cover the glued edges.

Okay, that solves that issue--thanks! My hope is to use several panels of Luan , cover with the foam then use 1 piece of material to cover them...to look like a 1 piece. Didn't think about glueing edges past the panels to the metal Guess the hardest part will be the cab area....and thoughts on doing the cab and transitioning to cargo area? Thanks for youth patience...The closest I've gotten to upholstering is putting seat covers on, lol.

Don't use luan for the panels, use PVC foamboard. It's much more bendable and is about 1/2 the weight.

Look for it at sheet plastic suppliers and sign shops. A 4' by 8' by 3mm (about 1/8") thick sheet should be around $35.

Dan, the 8" strips of plywood should run perpendicular to the metal roof braces? Also, should they be one continuos piece or staggered pieces from one brace to another. Next, I would screw the luan bases to plywood , then glue the fabric-covered pvc foam board to Luan?

Yes, continuous pieces, not staggered. Screw and glue the luan to the strips with construction adhesive like PL 300 or PL-400. The fabric covered PVC panels are glued to the luan with top and trim contact adhesive.

You need to look in your local yellow pages for sheet plastic suppliers, and/or sign shops. Don't look at the plastic places on the internet, they are very high.

This place is near you: http://www.eplastics.com/PVC_Foam_Board Look for white, the other colors are more expensive.

thanks for all the info! One more thing, insulation. I will be using a foil-backed butyl for deadener, then a layer of some insulation between that and plywood strips. What is a good, economical material?

Check for sound deadeners on E Bay, they always seem to have specials. Also check out B-Quiet.
