Hi all. Just ordered my first van, a vw T6 swb highline panel van and looking for places in/near london where i can have it sound deadened, insulated & carpet lined. Any ideas which companies do all this ? :)

I've ordered the van to be ply lined but now changed my mind and i want it carpet lined. Shall i call the dealer and cancel that or shall i let them fit the ply lining and then remove & keep them after. New to this and not sure how the carpet lining works (if they use ply or not).

Also thinking if its worth having the van PPF-ed (pain protection film) to help against scratches etc.


Many Thanks,

Many Thanks,
We have done the T6, Excatly the same as the 5, unless you are chucking tools etc in the back I suggest to cancel the ply lining as it's very ill fitting and just screwed into place... Sound proof, insulate and line it will transform it..

I'm a carpenter by trade so i'll be carrying my tools with it and the odd 8x4 plywood/mdf sheets. Guess if am careful enough should be fine just with carpet lined. Will contact you guys for a quote soon. Many thanks

I've a question if you don't mind. Why would I bother insulating my Kombi if I only intend to use it as family transport? I can understand sound deadening and carpet but not insulation. I won't be sleeping in mine. Thanks in advance and apologies for jacking the thread :)

The insulation will further dampen the wind and road noise. It will also keep the temperature more stable. You wont get hot so quickly on a warm day. You will retain more heat when you are driving with the heaters on....a definite bonus for rear kombi passengers.
