  1. Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi all, just brought a t5 which needs some care and attention to the bottom half the van due to some scratches / poorly done repairs. Orginally i had in mind a respray back to its current colour (raven blue) which me and my partner love. I was getting some quotes yesterday and one guy...
  2. General T4 Chat
    Hi - just a quick one - is there anyone with a 2 colour paint job who'd show me their rear end, please? (!) I'm just thinking over options - do I follow the upper colour and bonnet over onto the whole of the rear doors or do they stay the same colour as the bottom half. Or is there a sensible...

  6. Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting

  7. Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi all, My van is pretty new (less than a year) and having moved from a car to a van i realise, when parking / leaving it places, that there is a lot of opportunity for people to be squeezing past it and cause lots of tiny scratches from coats/zips etc. Obviously prevention is better than cure...
