  4. Ok cool . Does it need a fire retardant putting on or is it just plain old hardboard ? I have some of the bags of insulation stuff cheers paul
     
  5. Yea cool I will why not . Will it need a fire retardant applying or just plain old hardboard ? Cheers paul
     
  6. I'd imagine plain old hardboard would. VW tended to use the waterproof stuff - can't remember what it's called.

    When I made them, for some reason I didn't think about fire retardant stuff..
    It'll be something I'll do soon.

  14. I have metal sheets there holding up something looks like wool, covered in PVC. It used to have PVC until I set fire to it. The wool just charred a bit.
