    Working on the new van build and wondering what you have done to line the back of yours.

    It really is not essential in a the Trafic or Vivaro vans as they are Galvanized so don't rot anyway.

    In my old Trafic however I did strip all the ply out and line it with ProtectaKote. The new van has lovely ply and I am planning on leaving it in so it helps deaden road noise.

    I am planning on using ProtectaKote to cover it but just wondering if you lads have found any good alternatives.

    I Paul Dodsworth lines his vans with lino but I think I want the brush on solution.

    Suggestions?

    Can't remember who it was I'm sure someone on here had there van sprayed inside with a rubber type compound I saw some pictures but I can't remember if the pics were here or on the product website. It did look the bizz.

    As CHWS said rubber paint I'm sure that's what they use and a throw away battery sprayer.

    I had the floor of my van applied with speedliner it's not cheap but will be done in a day and comes with a lifetime guarantee it was done around 2.5 years ago and still has no signs of ware.

    I used isoflex liquid rubber from screwfix. I think it's really for repairing flat roofs but it works fine as long as you can put up with the smell that lasts for about a fortnight. A 4.5 ltr tin costs £40 I have a Nissan nv200 and used about half the tin.
