Any amount of water though will completely destroy the underlay.

Was this the one from the hills?

Looked like a great buy if it was the one I can remember (Gumtree).

That bay came up well, well done.

Don't know if it's ok to ask for the following in this thread:

Can someone please show a pic or two of how the bottom part of the tyre strap is fixed to the body - I think a tube thing.

I'm not talking about the upper rubber part but the other

Thanks

There should just be a metal bracket welded onto the face of the spare wheel well. It loops through there.

Craig,

When you cleaned the mat did the underlay come undone?

If so, is new underlay just glued on or what's involved?

Cheers

Oops. Sorry. Haven't been here for a while.
Yeah, you'll have to sacrifice the original underlay as it goes to pieces when it gets wet. Most stink anyway.
Just get some new cotton-waste sheet from an auto trimmer, cut to shape and use spray contact to glue it to the back.
