    Hi,

    The wall paper in my shower room of my peugeot boxer is a bit tired and has one or two imperfections/tears. I want to seal any torn parts and paint the paper. Any tips on this as I realise that the prep and products are vital or I'll just be doing this again!

    The shower tray has only minor cracks/hairline cracks and I'd like to know if there's a good product for paint this white to refresh it.

    many thanks.

    thanks for your quick reply. If I need to use a little filler/hairline crack filler, do I cover these bits with anything first or just paint them?

    the idea of using bed liner is it is urethane based and the rubber texture flexes with the plastic. if a crack is bad enough to need filling its better to plastic weld it before painting

    use flexible filler on the walls then prime the patch with a light coat of the vinyl silk which is also fairly flexible. when dry coat the whole area. remember you are painting onto a waterproof surface so drying time is extended

    maybe the van is 21 but its an affordable way to enjoy motorhoming. we are not snobs on this forum and whether its a home converted van or a palace on wheels we all have the motorhoming lifestyle in common

    You might have trouble getting the paint to stick on the vinyl W/paper, soap residue, body grease, etc etc etc.

    Zinesser 1 2 3 (the one with red in the label) will make it stick. It drys in 7 mins, and work in a well ventilated van, even going so far as to having a fan on full, else you'll float out the door.
