|Hwyhogg||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?|

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

|Hwyhogg||Wow, I hope a local store has it cheaper than I've been finding on line|

|DanTwoLakes||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.|

|Hwyhogg||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?|

|DanTwoLakes||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.|

|Hwyhogg||okay...will Google it to find sizes and prices.|

|DanTwoLakes||Don't use luan for the panels, use PVC foamboard. It's much more bendable and is about 1/2 the weight.|
|07-02-2013 04:39 PM|
|Hwyhogg||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.|

|DanTwoLakes||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.|

|Hwyhogg||I did look at trying to use a headliner from vans, but all I found were the molded foam boards that would bend and crease when I tried to reshape them. My biggest issue has been formulating system to tie in a headliner with the side panels and a way to trim the seams that doesn't look totally shadetree|

The older panel trucks were very utilitarian. It would not probably have had a headliner. I'm sorry if I have somehow offended you, but I do this for a living, and what you're suggesting would be more work with fewer design possibilities, and less possibility of success. I'm not saying what you suggested would not be an alternative if he was doing a car instead of a panel truck.
The head liner would not be done on plywood, the base for the headliner would be plywood. This would give him the opportunity of doing the headliner in three or four pieces. The headliner itself would be done out of the vehicle on PVC foamboard and then glued to the 1/4" luan plywood base.
