previous owner had already pulled the headliner so its out in my garage at the moment - have a local shop that will recover and reinstall for 275 - seems fair to me - just going to cut a couple holes in it first for a cb and lowrance antenna run some wiring for interior lights in the way back then have it done - was thinking about sound matting but I think I will just do the floor and skip the roof

I need a little noise to drown out the kids in the back sometimes!

DO THE ROOF!! You will be amazed at the difference it makes. Just go to the hardware store and get some HVAC duct insulation. It has adhesive on it already, just peel and stick with a little 3M spray for insurance. It is a cheap way to make a huge improvement. Plus it will stay warmer inside if you ever leave LA and go somewhere cold. God, I miss So Cal. I was talking to someone down there last week and it was like 80

I made this mistake when trying to insulate the trunk in my vintage BMW when money was tight.
Trust me, spend the extra money and buy some dynaliner from some seller on Amazon. HVAC duct insulation and tar-backed aluminum flashing is weak. That stuff will be sagging and no time and will probably effect your newly recovered headliner. The minute you start making compromises and using building materials for a vehicle it's the beginning of the end. Next thing you know you'll be justifying the use of 10/2 Romex for winch leads!

Take the time to re-seal the roof seams if possible, but definately use the right material for the insulation.

I always get Dynamat and Dynaliner confused. I mean the stuff in Barry's photo, not the foam padding.
Get the pro-pack/extreme or whatever they call it, it should cover the entire roof. I paid $127 delivered. 9 sheets/36 Sq. Ft.

Not really. I notice it more when I did the floor and doors.

FWIW, I always found the 200Tdi to appear to run hot. At least by the temperture gauge. Like 3/4 on the dial, when you'd think that 1/2 would be normal. It alarmed me as well so I asked around and found that these gauges are far from accurate (especially if an engine swap had been done). Have somebody do a infrared or one of those sophisticated thermometers while at operating temp to obtain a baseline.
THey run a 190 thermostat, so that's on the hot side compared to most v8s running 180.

my mechanic said the pump was leaking when they changed the oil so I got a pump and figured I would replace the temp sending unit and they sent out the radiator for free to have it inspected so if it all checks out ok Im going to get a vdo gauge just to check and be done with it - mechanically that should have it covered and she runs good but just want to have someone sign off on the cooling so we can pull some long trips in it - then its just the cosmetic stuff that I can do myself

they might find 4 inches of english earth in that radiator for all I know!

My truck must have had a snorkel at some point since all the body holes were there so I got one just for the fun of it

Also the radiator was plugged had that recored and just drove it for a while and cooling seems steady so going to drive it a little more this afternoon but I think cooling can be checked off the list
