    We normally put plywood and then coat it. A barrier between the the seats and coat 2 foot up the walls and out each door.

    Never had one rust out but once they get over 100k I'm using them as trade in on something newer.

    I suppose its possible but I would guess whatever little could find its way there is drying out. ???

    Ive used the 570 and even had it hooked to 400 foot of hose and it left me wanting more, thats why i'm looking at the 2 big boys. The X-drive is to knew with Pembertons being 3.5 hours away i'm worried about down time. Plus I really wanted that ecoboost engine! That this is a beast. I can smoke the tires with the van being empty.

    My original plan was to pull the factory liner and Linex it and then put the liner back down but theres a padding underneath the liner that would hold moisture so i'm not sure I want that. I was thinking marine plywood and then Linex because I was afraid the plywood would also hold moisture. But i can see having an issue if I ever get moisture trapped under the plywood. I'm planning on getting 15 years out of this van so I want to make sure I do it right.

    Eco boost really gives her some power! We have a pair of Transits and they are always the first trucks taken out.

    I removed the OEM floor mat, had the floor and up the walls sprayed, laid down plywood, removed the insulation on the back of mat and reinstalled it. The mat cleans easily and keeps moisture off the plywood.

    Always hate to see a new machine just bolted into a new naked van, with no thought about proper preparation.

    I agree... I hope to get many years out of this new unit so I'm trying to think of everything I might ever want.

    They are nice vehicles. I drove them both home at different times this week. So much power, room to stand in and modern styling I'm still impressed with them.

    They love it. Bastards want more of them but we are really not in need yet.
    When we do go time to replace other units it will be the 650.

    They have been passing it around just so all the tech's get comfortable with it. So far everyone has just been impressed with the performance.

    Screaming heat which we used at Mikeyfest Aptos on the nasty bar. The vacuum is incredible which I had witnessed at Mikeyfest in Hotlanta.

    It spent all day Saturday on T&G. Then Sunday at a bank doing some more T&G, while the other guys encap'd.

    Its worked out well! :cool:

    So i'm trying to decide between a wrap, partial wrap, or lettering. For you guys that have had your van wrapped did you have the design already done or did they design it as well. The one company I talked to about it can do it all but I'm skeptical paying by the hour for design work if I dont like it at all. Thoughts?

    If you don't already with with a designer, 99 designs is one way to go. The put it up for bid, you tell what you want and anyone that wants to partake in the contest submits designs.

    You get many designs, almost too many from different designers. You have a set amount but at least you know it won't exceed that. Its a cool process, we've used it several times over the years.

    You can also contact Phillip at Sign Amigo. He does great work too!

    That is messed up, I forgot about that.

    I really like the looks of everything. Are you going to build in storage in back for tools and products or just do shelving?

    I'm tired of everything being in the floor and am wanting to do a custom storage bin/ shelf out of wood. Just looking for ideas.
