    Camper now painted Ivory from its old black colour. Needed bumper replacing and anyway I wasn't happy with the colour match on the coordinated bumpers and mirrors, so decided to go the whole hog and have the van resprayed to a similar colour as my first J reg Beetle. Left some black highlights...

    I have a black LWB caravelle with heavy limo tints. I'm thinking of doing the top half in a lighter colour to make the windows stand out a little, cool it down in the Summer, and also to look much better! I'd consider a partial wrap, or respray, in a cream or light grey, they maybe match the...

    Hi, Can anyone recommend a good bodyshop in the Leeds / West Yorkshire area? Ideally I would like to use a bodyshop that is familiar with T5's. I'm looking to have my doors resprayed/repaired to removed rust etc so would be good it its a shop that would strip the doors down and do a proper...

    Finally picked up the new van after 3 months of searching.... surprisingly hard to find a 4motion with a high roof! Windows going in next week and looking at respray options. Has anyone done a two tone respray before? I'm thinking one of two options..... 1. Spray full bottom half. Logical way...

    Morning all, Any recommendations for a decent body shop for a full van respray in South East London? Obviously I can also push out into Kent (I'm in Beckenham/ Anerley) or further in for a decent place...

    Just wondered what people thought about vinyl wrap vs full respray. My T4 is in pretty good condition but has stated to show rust in the usual places (wheel arches, around windscreen etc). It also has a couple of dents here and there. So I am looking to have all the rust treated and body work...

    Hi all, I am looking to get my T4 resprayed with bodywork repairs and rust treatment and wondered if anybody could recommend anywhere. Ideally near Weymouth, Bridport, or Exeter area. Many Thanks :)
  10. Team Red
    After a bit of rust had reared its ugly head, I had two new rear arches cut and welded in and two new front wings....whilst it was there, decided on a colour change... Just need some nice black alloys and job's a goodun.
  11. What's it worth?
    Hi guys, I'm after a bit of advice, I'm new to dubs and this is my first van. I've pinched the write up below from the sales advert. I have been to a few body shops and I have been quoted £3-£4k to rid the rust and respray in white. I have also been quoted a lot less to grind back the rust...

    I have a paprika red VW T4. The body work is straight and has hardly any rust but does have a few scratches. That van is great mechanically so I'm hoping to keep it for a while but would love to have it re sprayed. I would like to change the colour but would keep it the same colour if it's...

    Hey fellow Dubnuts, I have a quandary.... I've had my 59 plate LWB 2.5 174 camper since new, and I'm thinking it's time for a facelift. Trouble is, taking into account that it's presently reflex silver and I really fancy raven blue instead, I really like the 5.1 sportline look, and I want a...

    My wife had an arguement with an oak fencepost and the result is a massive dent in my sliding door. I very much doubt it is fixable which I guess means I need to look at a replacement, taking the window out of my old one and getting it put into a new one and ofcourse spraying the door. Problem...

    Hi - im seriously considering getting my T4 resprayed ! My first problem in having a hi top, is finding that not every one can fit it in, but i know that can be overcome. My main concern is how to have it done ! In my head i have a light/sky blue van with a creamy white roof with come red...

    Here's my blue beauty, Dimples :D She's a 2.5 TDi with tailgate! Paint still a little "newly born" so have had to refrain from driving her around for now, but I could quite happily stare at it for hours on end lol Team Blue yeow!

    I've just had a full respray and my alloys done by a guy near Abergavenny and the results were stunning. I'd had a few niggles with bumpers starting to peel, a few(barely noticeable, but they were to me!) rust patches, and then the tin hat was a coming together of my trailer and tailgate...
