EASY TO USE
They are extremely easy to install and cut to suit your needs (Windows? No Problem!)
The panels are a sort of off white/cream color out of the box. However, the colors can vary slightly between panels and batches. We recommend that you customize the panels to match the interior of your van. The panels can be painted with spray paint that is designed for vinyl/plastic. Alternatively, the panels can be covered with fabric or other materials. So far we have tested a few spray paints including Krylon Fusion and SEM Color Coat both of which have held up well. We have also tested high quality latex paint applied with a brush which is not as durable but may be an option in some situations. Check out this video where we test various paints and their durability with these panels!
The panels can be attached to the van structure in a variety of ways. One approach is to drill holes into the van sheet metal and then attaching the panels using "automotive push clips" (similar to how the few factory-supplied panels in a Promaster are attached). Alternatively, you could secure the panels with self-tapping screws covered with screw caps. In both cases the push clips or screw head covers can be painted with to match your interior.
Window Cut Outs
For factory glass windows or factory-style windows such as CR Laurence or AMA windows, we recommend you cut the window opening large enough that the metal area surrounding the window is exposed so that you can use magnetic window coverings.
If you're using European-style acrylic windows (Dometic, Artic Tern, etc.) you'll need to construct a 1/2" to 3/4" (15-20mm) deep wooden frame for the window and then cut the corresponding window opening into the panel. After this you can install the panel and finally the window.
We recommend using a jig saw with a high-quality wood blade. Be sure to keep the saw/blade moving so that you don't melt the plastic with the hot blade during the cutting process. After the cut, you can finish the edges with a file or sand paper. You can trim the edges with Trim-Lok type edge guard (1/8" edge and 7/16 leg length). The edge guard can be painted with to match your interior.
The image above shows the older version of the panels installed into a Promaster van with window openings cut out. The newer version has a molded “cubby/indentation” above the window.
