Default Re: 2019 Sprinter Front Light Headliner Removal

Sorry, for now I'll be keeping the rear headliner. Someday I'd like to put in a wood ceiling, but knowing how quick I am at these kinds of projects, that will happen sometime between a few years and never. Right now I'm just adding thinsulate and a little sound deadening mat. I do expect I'll need to remove the rear part of the head liner multiple times over the course of the build since I'm not able to leave it off for an extended period of time.

One last question - is the van driveable with the overhead console unplugged? Or, does one need the cab headliner in place to give the console someplace to live?

I get it for sure...nothing wrong with the headliner and those wood ceilings are very time consuming and if not done correctly can make a ton of noise with all the flexing.

You will get a light check on your dash saying your lights don't work...however at least when I plugged the lights back in...it was gone after restart. Add more than a little sound deadening...you will be glad you did especially on that HUGE panel in the front and heck you have it down right? You will see on my current build thread how much I use ...my vans are better than most when it comes to how quite they are, type of materials, where those materials are placed, and amount of material I use does make a difference...up to a point of course. I have been in other vans I did not do that where insulated/sound deadend differently, in a few cased a huge difference especially when the wrong materials where used. (denim for example) Typical high roof van I use $1200 in materials and it takes me about 18 hours working very fast. - not including the floor. Figure up to double that time if you have to figure out how to take things apart and back together again.
