Seen a few using "plate", which must be heavy.

Is anyone using carpet or rubber matting?

If so, whats your thoughts on it?

I've probably lost it now but I had a link to a company that does a spray-on liner for pickup beds. Was going to try and source that for my buggy when the time came.

Was thinking of using that rubber floor covering with the raised circles on (about 30mm dia.). The stuff oyu often see in lifts.

following on from collies thread I have seen the same spray on pick up truck type liner and have used a diy type kit I found on the net for a friends old pickup..looked good was reasonably hard wearing(considering it was in the loadbed of a much abused pickup) and easy to overpaint here is the link

tell me what you think ?. Will definately have sound insulation properties on all that floorpan/ side wall chequer plate which I know may seem academic in such an open top noisy environment but I for one think it a reasonable bet as an improvement and also perhaps on the aestetic qualitys of the interior floorpan area ...hmmmmm ???

On Mary I had some rubber matting the type you see in front of machinery in a workshop, the one with small ridges in it. Then yesterday I bought a couple of door mats from Wilkinson's sound a bit like Kev mentioned higher up in the post, cost me £3.98 for the pair, not tried to fit them yet.

I think that rubber matting of which you speak Alan is actually called anti fatigue matting (no really) it's the same stuff they use or similar anyway to matting used in front  control panels  etc in large industrial installations where an operator may have to stand for extended periods of time it has insulation properties AND supposed to be easier on the feet and associated joints etc hence the anti fatigue label.. don't know how effective it is but it's tough stuff is it easy to cut and glue ?? how did you fix it in place ?.

I didn't, under the seats the bolts held it solid & the trapezium shape at the front I just cut to size & it didn't move, I did intend to put a few pop rivets in but never bothered.

Hum.. that paint stuff looks good... might even think about doing the frame in it too...

That thought crossed my mind too !!! Was wondering if a liberal application on the lower cross members would make the radii acceptable to Mr IVA  ::)

I either got it on ebay or from Dingbro

I used a kit to do my Pickup's loadbed, and had a bit left over:
