    We had it applied to our last van just before we sold it and I have to say I was very happy with the application and the job the guy did

    Yes, we had it applied to our shower tray, about a year ago, very pleased with it.

    It seems that most have had the shower trays done. Has anyone had it applied to the sink and is it a smooth finish?

    Hi DP JAY, Having looked at your pictures I am not sure it would look right on the bathroom sink?

    True, but then the sink is usually easier/cheaper to replace than the shower tray. In ours the tray goes in first & the washroom is built round it.

    We had our shower tray done! Great job. Textured and he matched the grey to the original. Came to the house.

    Thanks for all your help on Speedcoating. I have been told that there is a years guarantee on the work. Of those who have had this done did you experience any problems after a period of time, ie chipping wearing?

    Remember the old term: "Papering over the cracks".

    At least find the price of a new sink before bodging it.

    Hi hilldweller, I have tried looking for an original replacement bathroom sink for my Hymer B584 but have been unable to locate one. I have been told its not an easy job if I can find one because of having to dismantle the mirror etc?

    When I got the shower tray done it came with a lifetime guarantee as long as we owned the van.

    Hi lorger, sorry having the repair and complete shower tray coated, it does come with a lifetime guarantee but just having the repair made good in the shower tray and having the coating on the sink only comes with a one year guarantee. I would have thought that the sink came with a lifetime guarantee as well, will check this

    We had our sink and shower tray Speedcoated recently. It comes with a lifetime guarantee for both whilst we own the van.
