    T5 Conversions
    Hi all, I got my carpet to line the van today and i plan to crack on with the lining tomorrow. I am unsure about the wheel arches. I've seem some people do them separately to the van body frame and i've seen others do them in one go using the same sheet. So start at the top of the frame and...

  10. Carpeting - some thoughts

    Spent a busy weekend carpeting the panels and metalwork of the van.

I decided that...

    As I was going through sorting out pictures that got deleted the other week, it occurred to me that I haven't done a thread showing what I've done to the van.
