How did you find fitting it into the closed ribs? Were you able to fish it through or just had to pack it in?

At 3.5“ thick, do you have to compress it a fair bit? I believe the ribs/ cavities of the van are about 2” deep?

No problems getting it into any parts of the van. I didn't have to fish it, it was pretty easy to get it in. It's really easy to cut out pieces and pull it through. The size of the wool will keep it in place. Super 77 for any bits otherwise.

If it was a small cavity it would have gotten squished into there.

I understand that an airgap is part of the insulation process. There is not always an airgap, in the closed portions. Although if wanted you could not use the full thickness of the 3.5. It is pretty simple to separate it, and if you wanted to make a thinner it wouldn't be hard.

3.5 was what I could find in my timeframe, and happy with it so far.

Finally had some time to finish off the drivers side deatmatting and insulation.

All of the factory lower trim now is insulated.

Luckily I could work around the seats being installed in the van.
