Would love to have etching done but I don't know anybody so probably have to settle for vinyl

Start the flooring today, can't wait

There's companies all over the uk, I'm sure one would be able to create whatever you want. Definitely worth looking into (y)
Would be alot better than a standard sticker setup that would look cheap I suppose

UPDATE

Well today's progress has been eventful but satisfying to say the least.

Started off by fitting the Autowrap Sound Deadening to the floor, was a bit of a mission when there's only 1 pair of hands hahaha, so sticky and if you don't watch yourself it easily splits.
Decided to do it lengthways to minimalist cuts. Looked really good when it was down.

Then it was onto the 6mm ply boarding. Again decided to go lengthways in order to minimalist cuts, the big one took alot of measuring but was worth it. Once all the boards were cut to suit the van I used a trick of the trade from Princess Yachts and dot and dabbed loads of Marine Dow all over the ridges of the Sound Deadening.
The ply boarding was then sat in place and using alot of weight found from in my garage I placed it all over the ply boarding in the van therefore pushing it into the Dow in order for it to seal overnight.

Tomorrow's it's onto the silver foil insulation and heated floor element, can't wait for that to go in.

Also lastnight I ordered my flooring, should be here Friday ready for installation, so excited

UPDATE

Well this morning I am very happy with my progress, I've managed to fully insulate the floor in preparation for the flooring that turns up tomorrow, really took my time doing it in order to get it right without any loose ends or saggyness.

Having finished the floor insulation it's now onto my modification which I feel is a huge Gamble, never seen it in a van before so time will only tell if it works or not hahaha.

Now, even tho it's a heated floor and with my calculations it should work perfectly with what I have in mind, I am hoping it works well enough to carry the heat across the rest of the floor using the metal foil to transfer it, technically and logically it should work hahaha. I am putting a 12mm floor down tho 🤔
It came in one long roll but carefully splitting it and making two runs equally spaced apart shouldn't cause an issue with heat transfer.

Hope you guys like my work so far

I have mate but bugger me that will be expensive hahaha

UPDATE

Well made the first big mistake since I've started the build and it's down to ordering not enough kit hahaha. My bad.
So I started the day off realising that I didn't cut out the hole in my silver foil insulation for my rear blower motor to blow out hahaha, silly boy but all resolved now.

My side step as seen below will be getting painted black and having an inlay with the same wood flooring on the base. The slot you see at the top of the step will illuminate purple.

Also painted my front step aluminium inlays so they match the rear when done

Made a booboo and didn't order enough flooring, plenty of I didn't stagger the joins but it's how it's meant to be done, oh well. Await another delivery I suppose
