Phoebe Too - new carpet

Folks that came to Ouray last week for the FSJ Invasion had a chance to see the new and improved Phoebe Too. We brought her home from Tucson on Memorial Day Weekend with the new body looking groovy but still had to put carpet down. We ordered the ACC kit with mass backing from BJs Offroad right after that. We also bought 19 feet of water heater blanket, rust converter and rust inhibitor paint. We started by removing the seats, rear side panels and cleaning the floor up. Then I went around with concrete silicone crack sealer and sealed up all the body panels where the factory use seam filler first removing any loose pieces. Krista got busy laying down water heater blanket and with carpet fitment. The mass backing is a rubberized coating for the bottom side. It is a bit of a challenge to get to fit & trim some of the tight spots but the sound deadening affect is great. The carpet also came with 3 pieces of 1/2" felt padding cut to fit the cargo, rear and front seat floors. We only used the felt in the front floor for heat and sound insulation. The rubber pad for the cargo area was still good so it went down over the water heater blanket. We don't have a back seat in P2 yet and the rear seat belts and seat latches are not installed. The original tailgate carpet is still holding up OK after 35 years so we have not changed that yet.

Got a few pictures...

Carpet laid in sun to help it relax.


4'X19' of water heater blanket - Krista used 18' and installed it with 3M upholstery and headliner spray contact cement.


The cargo area clean and sealed.


Bob (rstep) had patched a small hole in the RF floor during the body swap and I had some surface rust clean up to do there. After wire brushing and wiping it down, rust converter was applied then 2 coats of flat white rust inhibitor paint. The driver side was much cleaner to start with.

The floor is in great shape for a 34 year old Wagoneer body.






Kudos to Krista for all the detail work.


The wheel wells were tedious work for fitment.


The end result was pretty decent. The door seals are new from Tijuana Mexico and attached with 3M weatherstrip adhesive.

Looks Awesome!

Great job indeed. Krista, could you do me a favor and measure the distance from the lower edge of the brake pedal to the floorpan (in the direction of pedal travel)?

I like it. Now all you need is some inside tiedown points.

HaHaHa! Good point considering what happened. We are not finished. We are never "finished". I will be looking at cargo area SS strip options. All the cargo deck strips we have are beat up and not worthy.

The rollover bent the crap out of the originals where the floor buckled.


When we have a solution for the cargo strips we will also install tie downs and the spare tire carrier. For now the trail runs she goes on will have minimal cargo.

That 's awesome.

The insulation was form fit well. That must have taken a lot of work.

Excellent job! Sure beats the duraliner and diamond plate the previous owner put in mine. It's nice because it cleans out easy but it is anything but quiet. I really have to turn up the stereo to cut out the road noise...

P2 looks beautiful!

I like it..........

I was expecting "Fuchsia" though! You can find tiedowns on Ebay pretty cheap. Mine came out of a Subaru just cut a square in the carpet (Careful..only one chance). Then a #12 stainless screw through the floor, add some bungee's and voila!

How's the sound deadening (Road noise) effect!

The insulation was actually the easiest and most stress free part of the interior! The aluminum bubble wrap is incredibly flexible and forms around curves and into depressions with ease! It cuts well and leaves nice clean edges. I wasn't sure we bought enough insulation so I kept all my scrap pieces and then just "patched" them together with duct tape to make larger pieces that could be cut to fit. The wheel well pic with me shows that in the side piece I'm fitting. The tranny hump took some thinking because there are so many hills and valleys and wide arced expanses to cover but it really was simple. I cut two large squares (the roll was 4 feet wide which was a good width but the foil does come in 5 and 6 foot rolls too). I lined the insulation up with the edge of the floor from the outside and glued flat in towards the tranny hump. Once I got to the tranny hump and started up the curves I trimmed and darted as necessary to get everything to lay down flat. Once that was done on both sides I took all the scraps and cut pieces to fit on top of the hump where I had open space. You can see all the duct tape patches in front picture.

thanks

It really looked good & will improve sound & heating & a/c function.

That rig is really nice. The reincarnation is impressive but we wouldn't expect less from you guys.

Thanks, but we really played a small part in the Phoebe resurrection. The real kudos need to go to the guys in Tucson that did the lion's share of the work.

Appreciate the offer Hon, but I stay far far away from electrical stuff. That is just nasty evil voodoo stuff that I just can't wrap my head around. Especially once someone has started butchering the harness!
