Hand raised ...
Did you install a vapor barrier?
Did you insulate the roof rails? If so with what?
What thickness did you use for ply wall panels?
What are the lines on rear windows?
Did you leave the oem lights on door switch and what did you do for can lights? Dash, wall, three way switch?
I know I’m gonna regret not doing solar. Also I’m just up the coast from you, in Newport Beach.

Will use double bubble temp reflecting/vapor barrier on back of interior panels for barrier. Used thinsulate over entire van, including under floor, in doors, pulled through every channel, nook a cranny. Used 2 60" x 30' rolls. 4 boxes of Noico 80 mil 36 sq ft sound deadening. Van is ultra quiet and doors close like an AMG
1/4" birch panels backed with double bubble then covered with 1/8 inch 4 lb high density foam covered with tweed fabric. Glued and stapled. Plan to explore Alaska/Canada so.... LOTS OF INSULATION

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

OEM LED lights "center row" still on door switches and console switch. Can turn on and off with light at rear door as well. Outside 8 lights are LED dimmable pucks powered by aux battery and have on/off ..dimmer slider combo switch mounted in headliner. draw 1.4 amps full bright and .18 dimmed.

Lines on rear glass is the defroster grid

Got it, thanks. I have gone thru a 30í roll of thinsulate myself. Used polyiso in the ceiling but havenít done the rails yet. Was thinking spray foam but might try thinsulate since you got it in there. Still need to do doors and above cockpit head liner Also.
I have the same or similar can lights, Havenít decided on location but was thinking three way switch by slider and rear door? thanks for the links.
