DIY Deckadence/Spaghetti Mat

I've seen a few posts about Deckadence in here with some references to "Spaghetti Mat", so I looked into that and want to pull the trigger on a roll of it to do my own install. Anyone on here gone this route and have pictures and advice? Specifically:
  • What brand did you order? I'm looking at Crown Matting Technologies 131 unbacked spaghetti mat
  • Did you paint a design on it? I want to make a big MC shield stencil to make it look like factory
  • Did you add buttons? My current snap in carpet buttons are still in the floor and I want to know if I should use them or get rid of them
  • Any other advice and gotchas

Here's the best price I've found so far...either going to order a 4x20 roll or get a custom cut. http://www.discount-mats.com/spaghetti-mat.html

I dunno about that spaghetti mat. It says that it has a foam backing to trap moisture, and that's exactly what you do NOT want.

I am getting the unbacked version, which is similar to Deckadence.

Eesh...not looking to spend that much

So if I split it up into three pieces (and then sew them back together using PVC glue and fishing line), I can fit it on a 4x10 sheet of this stuff. $5.14 * 40sqft = $205.60 + shipping.

this stuff is interesting not sure how it would glue I would think maybe something like a sticky tape underneath along the seam where your attaching two pieces then

I personally would not glue it. My factory decadence is very heavy and well made and stays in place while traveling. You want the ability to pull it out and shake the dirt out.....It's very easy to clean.

The line and PVC glue method was described here by a Deckadence reseller: http://marineflooring.net/how-to-seam/

Gluing pieces together, not gluing it to the floor

Did you ever do this? I'm looking into this for a winter project.
