Ply Lining Transit Floor


Don Kee

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I've brought a new van and need to paint the floor with a protectacote sort of paint.

The van is already ply lined but i want to rip up the floor ply so i can paint directly on the the metal floor and then ply line it back.

The thing is if i take up the ply line (depending on how it was put in) the chances are it wont be in a condition to put back on.

The question a have is where can i buy just the ply line for the floor of my van?

Ive looked about and can only find full ply ling kits...

Thanks in advance for any help :D

Hey, I painted my transit floor last week, it had ply down, with about 30 screws, there was quite a few screws I could not unscrew, so I had to rip the wood off.. Was scrap anyway and had no intention of putting back down.

 

I'm trying to find a large rubber mat, like honeycomb effect so water can drop through it. I think if your wanting to put wood back down you'd be best to protect it too.

 

I done a bit of shelving out of plywood from b and q, 12mm exterior sheets 2440x1220.. £30 a sheet, but I'd you have flyers take them in and ask to apply for a trade card, you'll get them for £23. Plus can save on other bits and pieces

Up to you it's your van!! I didn't need to seal any edges and the protectakote filled all the screw holes!

Thanks for the replies!!

I would like to get the floor painted, with it being a transit i'm trying to prevent rust as best i can!!!!

(Spent last weekend with it up on a ramp spraying the chassis and sills with anti rust paint!!)

I think you may be onto something with leaving the re plyling and putting these rubbers mat/sheets on though, does anyone have a link...?

Thanks all :)
