  1. 3 seater,130cm,4 part,rock 'n roll bed does one exist for a 2005 T30 swb Shuttle?

    General Van Chat
    Its been recently brought to my attention after 18 months ownership that a shuttle has extra reinforcing due to rear seating and in my case 4 of the rear middle seat floor mounts also, still in situ. I've read up on here about removal of these seat mounts, which seems the only way forward but a...
  2. Keeping original Caravelle Interior

    T4 Conversions
    Hey Guys, What are your thoughts on keeping the original carpet in the Caravelle for use as insulation and put my lino/vineer over it? It's a plastic covered foam with carpet over it. I'm thinking if it's good enough for VW it'll probably do the job? Can anybody see any problems with this...
  3. Screw holes left in floor - how to plug?

    T5 Conversions
    Hi all, So I'm putting sound deadening, insulation etc in my T5 as the previous owner didn't do a great job really. There are some self tapper screw holes in the floor that I won't be using. Ideally I'd plug them with a spot weld but I don't have a welder so do put a screw back in, put a...
  4. Holes in floor advice wanted

    Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    We are converting a 2001 caravelle to a camper. There are several holes through the floor where seats etc have been been bolted and now removed. Prior to fitting the rnr bed and cupboard unit and a vinyl floor what do I do about the holes? Block, rustproof, leave? Possibly a daft question but I...

    Hello all. I have just bought my T4 and am attacking a few rusty bits. I have been searching around but can't find an answer. The one that has me a little stumped is this. I had a hole in the floor next to the rear offside wheel tub. It looked to have been pushed up a bit too so I went and...
  8. Flooring batons - Screwed or Glued?

    Im about to start putting in some wooden batons across the floor to screw a ply surface onto. Is it best to screw the batons into the corrugated van floor or can i just use 'no nails' or something similar? If screwed, should i use some kind of sealant to prevent water getting in? Should i prep...

  10. Insulation/soundproofing of VW T5 front floor

    I've been looking at all the soundproofing and insulation options and whilst there's plenty of the posts/comments in relation to the back area (i.e. behind the B pillars) I can't find much in relation to the driver/front-passenger area. My thinking is to add SilentCoat 2mm under the factory...

    Hi guys, Ive had a look round for some info on this and decided to buy some Bonda Primer to treat / paint the floor of my T5, it is not bare metal as it already has the factory paint job on the floor. From what I gather as its a horizontal surface and its soon to be insulated the floor has a...

    T4 Syncro Garage
    Hi. My 2001 T4 Syncro was a white panel van. I notice while fixing some rust underneath it on the rear panel that the floor of the van underneath is a light blue colour. Is this normal colour sprayed in factory on all T4's underneath or was mine sprayed underneath?

  18. Quick release Floor brackets, anyone used them for anything other than seats?

    Got 2 sets of the brackets for my triple seat in the back of the van so I can either have load space or living space dependant on needs. When in the either position I look at the mounts and can't help think that they could be used for something else. I.e. fixing down a table, bed, unit, storage...
