    Hi
    I’m going to try and make a day van out of my 08 dispatch but i’m struggling with the ply lining.
    i would like to ply line the van like the photo below but ain’t got a clue how to make templates for the van so that i can cut the ply as close to a good fit as possible. I currently have the usual ply line kits fitted but i’m looking to get this effect if possible.

    1. Using thin pieces of cardboard, make a templates that fits tightly, cutting the cardboard with scissors.
    Flip the cardboard over the make the templates for the other site.

    2. Use a scribing tool to draw the shape of the counter onto the plywood directly.

    I would go for option 1.

    Use a jigsaw when cutting the ply, to round of your pencil lines.
    Use 6mm plywood to allow it bend to the shape of the van walls.
