Cladding rear pillars?
#1
Total newbie here so be gentle on me. Ive spent an hour on search already and didnt find answer

I've stuck insulation on my  side,rear door  and roof panels and covered them  with fluffy stuff. Think I'll have to have a go at sticking carpet too as its very bitty as is. 
Saw a video of carpet directly app,ied  onto bare rear pillars and you could see every hole and indentation and it didn't look so great. I've a LWB so the pillars are quite big and are full of holes. 

Do i need to cover them with something before carpet? 
If so.what?
Do I need to ply ceiling before carpeting ? 

Does anyone know of a guide or video on how to make the rear window storage boxes. Thanks.

Hello, you probably need to supply some more information to get some replies?

What are you planning to use your conversion for and how often? [I'm asking because of you plan to use it a lot, you probably want something a bit more hard wearing than a bit of carpet, that could get grubby very quickly with a lot of use]

What is your budget?

With regard to rear window storage boxes, what model/year of Berlingo do you have as the rear windows are different shapes/sizes depending on the model?

Thanks a million for reply. I have a LWB Berlingo HDI. Cargo Van. Twin sliding doors + rear asymmetric barn doors. Three seats up front and a frame behind drivers seat.
The rear side window panels I've insulated above the plastic cover over wheel arch. Id love to get rid of these but there are wires sitting on the arch. Not sure theres much room now for boxes. Looking at videos with them.. They seem to be on the car version with huge window sill to rest them on.

Apart from regular getting around vehicle..i sleep in the back when away at weekends but would like option of staying in it for a week or two or maybe longer ( looking at forced retirement soon)  and going abroad doing running races. 

Thought carpet rather than tongue and groove as that seems even more difficult and heavy. Are there other alternatives for lining a van?

I used contact carpet clue in a can to stick foam insulation to the roof of a van  It worked quite well and stopped condensation dripping on me overnight.

This is a link to a similar thing I used. Did not stick carpet over it as I thought it would be too heavy.

Could use carpet on the rear pillars using the same kind of glue

I have insulation stuck on roof already. Did you leave yours uncovered? Thanks
