Hi all,

In the process of redoing the interior of the van!

I have covered the headlining and rear tailgate in red hibiscus, I have a cream (matches the hibiscus fabric) boat lining vinyl ready to fit to the side panels, boxes and sliders.

My question is regarding the floor! I am really after the same rubber mat that is also fitted but unfortunately Mr. VW says that they don't do them any more :(

What have you guys done? Ideally I need it to be waterproof-ish as i'll be changing out of my wetsuit in the back!! (No more cold changes for me :D)

The seats have the mushroom quick release jobbies so i'd need to be able to fit the floor around them!!



Also, does anyone know what red this is, (Tornado?):



Many thanks,

Martin

hi.under the fuse box it says what colour your van is.ie, paprika,poppy, etc. I rubber underlayed my van for sound proofing and insulation then half inch ply.Then stuck down 'altro' flooring.Its not a cheap product but it takes all the wear and tear and its waterproof and comes in lots of colours.I got mine from a flooring specialist.here in cornwall I used tregonnings of Redruth or Dawes flooring in Truro stocks it too. hope this helps, cheers T:

I used some wood effect lino, the stuff that looks like IKEA wooden floors, but is rubber and very waterproof.

I picked up an end of roll from a local carpet shop for £20 and fitted it myself (using the spray glue I carpeted the sides with).

It looks sweet, is very water proof, soft underfoot and real easy to sweep all the sand out!

Sounds like a good plan! Did you put anything underneath the lino?

Any pics would be awesome!!

Cheers, Martin
