Thanks man. Yes the LEDs are decking lights and i just spliced them into the main cargo bay light so they operate as it does. Ive ordered some button shape rubber mat for the floor. Not the most ascetically pleasing compared with some others, but with 3 dogs to go in the back it was really the only option.

It might actually have been your thread i saw them mentioned, if it was then thanks. Because they were SO easy to work with and install. Hmm... that's a good idea, i might just do that. Thanks again for another idea.

Little bit of work done this past couple of days. The rubber mat arrived for the floor. Not as nice as others floors but with 3 dogs its pretty much essential. Set about putting it in to look as nice as possible.

Removed the floor and sanded all the bumps and whatnot from its surface. Then marked out and cut it to shape for as neat a fit as possible.

Then refitted the ply floor and screwed it down to the bonded ply strips underneath. Lay the rubber mat it for what turned out to be a damn good fit. I wanted the mat held down properly but didn't want to glue it to the ply. Fancied something nicer. Looked for all sorts of options using Stair Noses and other pre made trims but nothing was right for me. So i bought some 25mm right angle aluminium bar and made my own for the front, side and rear. And pretty pleased with the outcome.
