any overspray comes off easy with white spirit T: . the spray i use is in industrial megga cans and knocks the socks off any tinned sprays , still cones off easy with spirit

I used a contact adhesive called Bond Loc which is available from Toolstation. I think it's about £5 a tin (500ml maybe?) and I used 2 tins. It's available as brushable or spray. I used the brushable as I felt it was more controllable and it worked great. Hammerite thinners seemed to clean the brush.

Yep, definitely go for the high temp stuff. I learnt the hard way and ended up doing the roof lining twice:*:* It was fine until the summer!

I've used the same, so it's not scene tax that's pushing prices up is it, I used four tins so my vans now worth £29,000:D

Aerosols are for the low stress areas ideally - and to cover large areas of carpet. Use brushable on high stress areas to give extra grab.

Neither costs the earth and both are available from MegaVan Mats or Martrim. Both HAVE to be high temp automotive glue.

This is the one thing that keeps coming up again and again and again and each time someone says that they got their glue from some local DIY place - and I'll repeat the same reply again.

If you don't use high temp automotive specific glue, your carpetting will be lucky to last more than a couple of years at the very most and you'll have to do it all again.......
