Ply lining mk7

Postby ryankkm » Sun Jul 16, 2017 10:37 pm

I've took all the ply off the floor on my 2008 Swb transit, some amount of dirt and stuff gathered underneath it,
Cleaned all up and now going to fit nice new plywood.
Any tips on what to do before I put it down maybe to keep my floor sound from rust?
What about clear waxoil? Any advice

Fill all the holes where the old floor was screwed down with tigerseal from above and below.
Maybe even put some tigerseal on the raised parts of the floor to stop the new floor squeaking while driving, and while you're in the back walking on it.

As for rust pretection, mine floor wasnt rusty when I did mine so I did nothing about rust.

Cheers lads, there is zero rust on the floor but it was slightly starting at the seal of the arches, so wire brushed back to clean metal, primed and painted that. I have a litre of clear waxoil here might give a light coat around the problem areas, can't do any harm that's for sure lol

I've thought about putting down a thin layer of rubber sheet or similar under my plywood, to reduce the wear on the paint over time. But it's quite expensive to buy.
