Fibre glass van lining

My old man bought a new van and today iv lined it out with grp fibreglass
I did the course a few weeks ago, this is obviously a system designed for roofs but works brilliant in the back of the van, it’s now waterproof, impact resistant, seamless and hard wearing

I suppose it would be a little slippy, the surface is rough though so not too bad, saying that I don’t tend to run around in the back of the van so I don’t see why it matters

Probably means tools sliding about etc, but it’s no different with ply. Most people put some racking etc in anyway

Did a boat years ago... well, helped a mate's uncle.

So far as I remember, we topcoated, sprinkled some fancy sand over it and topcoated again.funnily enough, I've done exactly that with floor paint today.

You can get an aggregate you throw on as you roll on the top coat, this is for if you tile over the top of it to provide a key

A grip system on the floor and that’s a good sell Tom. Nice little sideline.
I used to do a lot of resin work but I’m allergic to it now. Can’t go near it.

We made a f**k**g killing doing roofs during the boom. Mate was the only installer on IOM of a particular type of system and we had a tame architect - topseal I think it was called.

Architect specified topseal, customer rang us, we put in a price that just about beat getting anyone over to the island and we laughed all the way to the Leeds.

Haha yeah I k now a few people who have lotus Elise and they drive them like tarts because they are scared of crashing :)

With the kit car if you start worrying about the crashing then you would not bother :)

I never dove it like a tart, I did loads of track days in it, I was always just scared of someone getting jealous and sticking the boot in it
 
Yeah not done a track day in the buggy yet... I am ok with crashing but on a track day i will take someone out....

The buggy is short wheelbase so when it is controllable it is ace but sideways is fun but my god when it snaps you are doomed....

Always preferred the vx220 look so damn good

Could have done with this recently. Left my van with my dad when I went away for his use. He was going to make a makeshift roof rack. Then didn’t but loosened the brackets on the roof. Forgot about it. Anyway they twisted off in motion. I didn’t know anything about it until my van flooded in the rain! I’ve. I e botched it with sealant n s**t. Seems to be holding!

@JessThePlasterer calls me an illiterate toad and I don't get full of 8 Ace and offer her out in bus stops.

Wise up.
