MidCity specifically says it is for a 2019 907 (VS30) Sprinter. A call with certainly be a good idea.

Good Luck,

As I sit waiting for Lizard Skin sound control to dry on the front 1/3 portion of the van, I thought I would post an update. Haven't been able to get too much done because of that thing called work, but last weekend my friend helped, well I helped he did, build my partition. Also got my riv-nut gun, L-track, and a few other parts and pieces in so that I can at least have something functional for our trip to Texas on Thursday. The biggest stress right now is getting the lizard skin to dry on the floor so I can put on a 2nd coat before I put on the floor (hopefully tomorrow). Excited and nervous for how the floor will fit or what alterations I will have to make for the partition. My plan of now is to un-bolt the partition, place floor and re-drill new holes to account now for the 1/2" the floor will add. My plans for Lizard skin on the entire floor as well as their insulating spray on the ceiling will have to wait until it gets warmer. As we speak my wife is heading to ACE to buy another heater that will hopefully put off enough to warm the van for the next 18-24 hours. That will be 3 of these that are in there. It's only 45 degrees outside, but the instructions say it has to be at least 60...fingers crossed....stay tuned!

Lizard Skin ordeal done. Didnít have enough to cover floor and walls with 2 coats so I just did 2 coats on the ďcabĒ part and the walls behind the partition. Nothing on the floor. Put in the new KK-Plus floor last night. Everything fit ok. Had to make a few kids to anchor holes as they didnít all line up exactly. All worked well. Now have to put up L-Track tonight.

Mostly Hare and Hound (national hare and hound, AMA District 36 Hare Scrambles) and Grand Prix (WORCS and AMA Big 6-now AMA National Grand Prix Championship Series) Then we'll mix in stuff like Last Dog Standing Hard Enduro, 24 Hours at Glen Helen and random races here and there...headed to Post, TX as we speak for NHHA race...

When I was insulating my van, I noticed the Upper Most Wall (above windows) portion had some loose panels that emitted a lot of deep noise while driving. Specifically the portion you did not spray. The rear/upper panels, when tapped on, were like a drum.

Seats are in...I like them. They are a bit firmer than I had thought they would be, but I am sure they will break in just fine. Really like the mounting plate and brackets that came with it. Makes them secure and factory strength. Good thing! Going to lizard skin for insulation today. I will also put more noico on as I have some left. Didn't do sliding door... Next up after that, Thinsulate, ceiling, and walls. That should be it for a while...

I am thinking about a 170 partitioned mx build as well. What are your thoughts on how hot the van might get? Is like a roof ac a good idea or unnecessary with proper insulation? Also the captains chairs, are they tested for crashes? Where do you get them? What are some must have’s in the garage? Toolbox, air compressor, handheld shower, work bench?
