So how did you guys go about it? we have a 345 LE too..and although I spent countless hours with a wet vacuum rented from Home depot sucking out the grime - dirt looks really good...but i just don't like it anymore...I am thinking of either removing the carpet totally...then removing whatever paint/glue is on the aluminum underneath...all which seems like a really long process...any thoughts?

We have a 2003 safari with the mouse fur. We have pulled back the carpet from about a 1/3 of the wall so far and it was easy to do. There is adhesive underneath which you can choose to clean off or not. We found a green adhesive remover which isn't toxic and doesn't smell called "soy it" and it works great. Unfortunately, the grade of alum. underneath isn't as nice and a bit dull so I don't think we are going to leave it bare. We are considering putting a no VOC wall covering on it possibly with a membrane between. Since the aluminum bleeds through and there were several spots on the carpet that were darkened by this. We assume the same thing could happen with a wall covering even the thicker kind we are considering. We have also been tossing around what other thicker materials we could put back on the walls to help with insulation and sound. Any ideas? We will look into the formica. There is an eco friendly material called marmoleum we have also considered. Comes in a million color choices.
