    Anyone know where to get something like this?
    I ideally want a strip of it so I can bolt it to the wall down the side of my drive.

    Sorry not really.. people usually fix some carpet to their garage walls. But i guess this wouldnt be appropriate.

    You could probably just use some generic rubber mat/floor protector as cheap as you could get from somewhere like robertdyas

    I take it we are talking about external of Garage right, not inside where one(usually) parks their car?

    Get a couple of lengths of pipe insulation from B&Q, cut them in half down the length and use "no nails" to stick them to the wall.




    *Sidi's tip of the day*
    Don't stick them to the car doors because it will look silly and people will point and stare and you will end up with a pic on Barry Boys with everyone laughing at you.
    I know its probably a good idea in theory to stick them to the car doors to help prevent damage in multistory car parks etc but don't, its just wrong. :thumbsup::laugh::laugh:

    Yep, I used pipe insulation inside my garage. You can screw it to the wall rather than glue - just stick a large headed washer over the screw so it doesn't rip through.
