    How do you seal a wall?

    So I am building a wall in my SUV which I have never done before. I have the design and all but of course there are air gaps that need to be sealed off.

    Exactly how do you do it? Do you make panels around the entire box to trap the air from going to the back?

    ^^^ i did like pr_festiva, or you can use painters tape on the headliner and panels, then use expanding foam so there is no damage done to the vehicle, and that would be pretty much the tightest seal. then cover it with panels to hide the foam

    It doesn't have to be like completely sealed.. I'm not a stickler for perfection lol I just need it stop most of the air flow. I will probably use the mdf with tape idea
