Posted by lenpg (Len Gribble), 9 March 2004
This subject was brought up on the Window cleaning forum, has any one had there vans internally waterproofed? As I am now aiming to have mine done, due to an over site by me it cost me a new CD changer & sat nav system, does any one have details of a company who dose this treatment.

Hi John

Thanks for the CHT hint; you had me stump “ artex bark effect” not a bad idea but I would choose swirls with shells it would be like being at home all the time, Grin Grin Grin

I will be phone the co that Lee supplied.

No Len

it has been found that artex contains a small amount of asbestos so unfortunately you will not be able to decorate your van.

Why not fit polystyrene tiles instead and paint over it's a  lovely finish I know as the house I bought had them every where Grin

Hi Michael

Never thought of that but sorry to say it’s a bit down market for me, presentation counts.
