  1. T5 Conversions
    A little place to keep track of my progress when I decide to throw in the towel in a few months. Bought this at Wilsons Auctions for €2,600 without test driving it. Collected it 3 days later and gave it the formal test drive on the way home. Its a 2005 2.5tdi t5 4 motion. 246 kilometers on the...

  3. SWB Garage (All Versions)
    New thread to follow my build progress. So now I have the van I'm going to start planning and thinking about the conversion I want to do. I want to do as much of the work myself as I can :) Initial plan Pop top roof with elevating bed. Full 12v & EHU & solar electrics swivel passenger seat...
  4. The Workshop
    So I've finally got one and couldn't wait to start. The plan keeps it reasonably simple as a Kombi with pop top and some additional electrics so it remains multi-functional. We may go for a slide pod in the future but for now I want to make sure its well trimmed out and comfortable with a pop...
  5. LWB Garage (All Versions)
    Gus the bus (my old T4) has done me proud but decided it was probably time to look for a bigger van.... after 3 months of searching I ended up with this beaut! The missus has set up a European wedding planning business so will be abroad for 2-3 months over summer and seeing as I can work...
  6. The Workshop
    Eh up forum readers. For Bully's posterity and your general amusement (and possibly the occasional piece of sage wisdom I:), here starts his build thread. Had some undocumented, basic modifications already but nothing worth talking about here. Headlight loom, pedal box reinforcement, decent...
  7. New T5 Members Forum
    Hi, We're having a 2009 van converted by Bodans of Shrewsbury at their new place in Chirk. Each week we've been going over to see what they've done and take a couple of photos. The spec and layout is to suit 2 people and 2 dogs and we'll also be carrying an awning for extra space (changing...
  8. SWB Garage (All Versions)
    Hi All, Here be our build thread. Partly in the interests of garnering the community's advice, but also partly so we can look back on progress. Enjoy, and feel free to chime in with anything you may think useful for this n00b. :* For those who care. We picked up a nice, clean 2011 in Olympian...
  9. The Workshop
    After getting a new job that required transport the painful decision was made to get rid of my '72 Devon Bay and get something more practical for the everyday. Then the missus stepped up and suggested we get a T4 camper and kill two birds with one bus. Well I was hardly going to say no...
  10. T4 Syncro Garage
    So the long journey of finally fixing up our LWB syncro 'Cuthbert' begins. Had him since 23 August 2010, and done the odd patch up to keep him going, but not alot more - he's done us well though taking us camping in Scotland and Wales. We raised the suspension by about 80mm to fit all terrain...
  11. SWB Garage (All Versions)
    I am relatively new to the forum but have been lurking for some time reading, looking at how to do stuff up until a month ago when I got my trendline 5.1.. I have started the journey of converting and up to now I have managed to put in sliders on the left and right hand side and tailgate...
  12. General T4 Chat
    Just bought myself a new T4 for a slow, long and hopefully cheap project. This is my 4th T4 over the past 8 years and by far the worst condition.... a proper all out project :) Vans in the past have always been of a reasonable standard with nothing but my own stamp to add. This one is going to...
  13. General T5 Chat
    Hi everyone, I've been a lurker until recently when I finally committed to buying a T5 and I got sme good answers to the questions I asked. I picked up my van today and I'm really happy! J: Spent all afternoon cleaning it up. The plan is to get a caravelle interior in ASAP so I thought I...
  14. Team Black
    Original Pics from the Dealership. I guess its never going to look better than these, in terms of polish and paintwork. Hello, This is the Build thread for my new joy, currently named - Prudence. I have to say, the name is still under some debate. If this were a baby, we're probably at...
  15. LWB Garage (All Versions)
    Been dying to have my own build thread for years! So, here goes!... For those that know me, this will be my second van, but the first which is starting out as a complete blank slate. I've had many, many, many epic times with my T4, but I found the right base van at the right time so it's time...
  16. Team White
    Hi All. Start of my effort for Team White. Posting my build to try to give back some ideas as this forum is an inspiration with some great vans! Starting out as a basic panel van (was very dirty!), but solid and drives well. Idea is for a flexible day / camping van. There are 5 of us + dog...
  17. The Workshop
    I’ve started a few threads on here before but as the van is currently with Ed at Celtic Motorhomes having some big changes, I thought I’d start a new one and make this my main build thread. Here's a pic from the for sale ad for my van. It was the first T5 I had ever driven. Buying it was an...
  18. SWB Garage (All Versions)
    Picked this up in September 2013 after viewing a few and hunting for a base van for a new build. Was a Private buy from a lady who had been using it for a small hobby catering business and thanks must go to @Turlough for giving us the heads up on this wee gem! So time for another build thread...
  19. General Van Chat
    Ok so here we go...first post. Got my ex AA T4 a few months ago and it was pretty much a blank canvas. Good solid 2.5 diesel with inter-cooler so I think it is 102bhp.T:
  20. T4 Conversions
    So the journey begins! Me and my girlfriend have just purchased this beautiful w reg vw t4 with 62000 on the clock! It was originally owned by a chap who done car valeting so he kept a pressure washer inside so there is some surface rust work to be done inside. The plan is for it to end up...
