    I have a vauxhall combo van, on the floor is a built in sponge mat. I lifted it today to give it all a good clean. Now I have to waterproof the van before fitting my system. I was just wondering what you guys use to waterproof it? Apparently a lot of you use a spray paint from Screwfix, do any of you know what paint this is? or have any other suggestions?

    Cheers for your help,

    Matt

    I dont know any that use Spray paint Matt, I used stuff called Protecta Kote, (cheapest on ebay) I used a radiator roller to apply.

    Screwfix have a similar cheaper product but I dont know what it's called

    I bought 4L (expensive) and found I only needed perhaps 1.5L and I have a Renault Trafic SWB so you could possibly do your van a couple of coats with just 2L.
