FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FOR SOMEONE WHO IS READY TO TAKE ON A DIY VAN BUILD LIKE YOU ARE LIKELY TO DO, WE EXPECT 2 DAYS FOR 1 PERSON OR 1 DAY FOR 2 PEOPLE TO COMPLETELY INSTALL THIS KIT. FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH RIVNUTS AND VANS IT CAN BE DONE IN AS LITTLE AS ONE DAY!

YOU WILL NEED A RIVNUT TOOL THAT WORKS WITH ¼” RIVNUTS (WHICH MOST DO), A DRILL, ALLEN WRENCH, SHARPIE, AND BEER. FIND LINKS TO THE TOOL RECOMMENDATIONS ON OUR SHOP PAGE.

EACH FABRIC HAS ITS STRENGTHS. BOTH ARE WASHABLE BUT THE SILEATHER IS SUBSTANTIALLY EASIER TO CLEAN. WE RECOMMEND THIS FABRIC IF YOU HAVE DOGS OR KIDS THAT LOVE TO MAKE A MESS! MARATHON FABRIC HOWEVER WILL HOLD UP BETTER TO ABUSE FROM SKIS, BOOTS, AND SURFBOARDS.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCOMMODATE ANY CUSTOMIZATIONS PAST THE STANDARD ADDS THAT YOU SEE LISTED. ANY EXTRA OPENINGS YOU MAY NEED YOU CAN CUT IN AFTER THE FACT AND PUT SUPER GLUE (PROVIDED) ON THE EXPOSED FIBERS TO PREVENT FRAYING.

BECAUSE THERE IS NOT A “STANDARD” LOCATION FOR THESE, WE ARE UNABLE TO BUILD THEM IN. LUCKILY, FVC HAS AN AWESOME PILL WINDOW TRIM THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO CUT OUT FOR AND INSTALL AFTER THE FACT SINCE THE FLANGE COVERS THE CUT YOU MAKE. BUY THEM ON OUR SITE UNDER SHOP!

RIGHT NOW WE ARE NOT PROVIDING A WOOD CEILING, BUT WE HAVE SEEN SOME CREATIVE CLIENTS USE ½” SLATS OF WOOD AND SCREW THEM INTO THE UPHOLSTERED PANELS ONCE THEY ARE UP! IF YOU DO THIS, PLEASE USE 1” SCREWS MAX.

AT THIS TIME WE DO NOT HAVE A COVER OVER THE SLIDING DOOR.

WE DO! EMAIL US FOR MORE INFORMATION ON CUSTOM FABRIC OPTIONS.
