    Was too busy posting on here again and now have water with bubbles in it flooding out of me van down the road. Oops!:(

    Well at least the van floors should be nice and clean and smell a bit better now. Lets just see how many car driver flash me or toot their horns as I go to do a gutter & fascia job with water pouring out the back of the van now. I'm sure it will not be the last time I flood me van either :D

    The boot of my car used to be a mobile pond, with buckets of water falling over etc when I was driving. In the end I drilled a hole in the bottom of the boot so any water could drain out. I had one bloke following me once pipping his horn and flashing me. He thought I'd got a leak in me petrol tank :D. I just stuck my thumb up and nodded in a yeah I know I got a leak kind of way :laugh:

    Do you have to coat the insides of vans? won't it rust them etc? the back of my pick up has like a really thick plastic lining.
