    Hi All,

    I have seen the very smart looking black and white chequered vinyl flooring in the back of a few peoples buses and like the look. Am presuming that it was a standard finish - maybe on deluxes?

    Has anyone found a repro of this flooring anywhere with the right size chequers? I have found some that are way too big and some that are way too small but nothing that would look right in the Kombi.
    Failing that, if someone has original flooring like this, please can you tell me the size of the squares and then I can go ask in a store if they can get something suitable in

    Cheers
    Dave

    You wil find the unoriginal Vinyl flooring you need at Bunnings, that is what was in our Bay. Buy it from the roll. We put it in "Ray the Grey Bay" years ago, and then all of a sudden saw it appear in other kombi's. It does look very good, but nothing original about it "Bunnings option" only i'm afraid.

    You've gotta love it because it's such an easy, but most especially, CHEAP thing to do!

    Happy shopping Dave. :)

    If you use it for camping go vinyl.

    buy the vinyl square, better than the roll, easier to replace if they get damaged.
